Ken Grant, 20, is a Pop R&B artist and producer with a background in jazz performance. He began his musical training with classical piano at age four, and then saxophone at age 10. He became immersed in jazz, studying under musicians such as Will Vinson, Andrew Beals, Don Braden, and Jimmy Greene and beginning to perform in the New England area at age 16 where he played gigs from fundraising events to private parties to the Litchfield Jazz Festival. In 2007, Wynton Marsalis awarded Ken an Outstanding Saxophone Soloist Award at the Essentially Ellington Jazz competition in New York City.

Lyrics

Heart Like Thunder

Written By: Ken Grant

I saw a flash across your eye.
The feeling passed and you said goodbye.
But I've got this beating in my chest,
And it grows and it grows

CHORUS:
You make my heart like
Thunder, er
And I wanna be your lover, er.
My hearts like thunder, er.
You hear it beat beat beat
And I'm going under.

VERSE 1:
Can you feel me shake
When I hold hold you close? Oh.
A heart just waiting to break,
Verge of overload. Oh.
And when you're around
I can hear the sound, it grows.
I feel your touch
And my body is ready to go.

I saw a flash across your eye.
Of passion I thought would just pass me by.
But I've got this beating in my chest,
And it grows and it grows
Until it feels like

(CHORUS)

VERSE 2:
I'm not one to chase.
This is unusual.
My pulse is running away,
Running to you, beautiful.
And when you're around
I can hear the sound, it grows.
I feel your touch
And my body is ready to go.

(CHORUS)

BRIDGE:
Now you're filling me all up with fear.
This feeling's too good, is it even real?
Now if I could show you,
I wanna make it clear.
So I'll hold you real close,
Close to me to hear.
There's something you might discover.
