Ken Menard - Songwriter / Singer
Born in the State of Connecticut in 1966, he is the youngest of five children. Ken was always interested in music and many times would dance around the house as a baby, loose his balance and fall into things.
Learning to play the piano at the age of eight; self taught by an organ template that stood up on the keyboard to mark out the chords. Ken would play songs and sing for family and friends. It wasn't until the late 70's when he would learn how to play a guitar, another self taught instrument.
Ken used to watch Hee-Haw all the time and enjoyed when Buck Owens would come on to play. In the late 80's, Ken would listen to Keith Whitley, Clint Black, Garth Brooks, Alan Jackson, and just adored Lorrie Morgan.
Ken starting writing songs in the mid 1980's. Most of the songs were personal stories of his life, friends, or other members in his family. In 1990, Ken hired Larry Lee from the Nashville Song Plugger Association to represent his music to other artists. Several very popular recording artists heard his songs, but Ken assumes the demo tapes were of very poor quality and not much happened with them. Larry Lee passed away in 2001 and Ken did not have any presence in Nashville for ten years. Now he is making his comeback through the Internet, his contacts, and local venues.
Although all of his songs are demos, Ken would like to have them recorded professionally in a studio someday. Until that time, Ken uses a Zoom R8 Mixer, plays his 12-String, 6-String, Electric or Grand Piano, while singing on individual tracks. Afterwards, all the tracks are combined into his finished demo.
