STORY OF MY LIFE,
I've been a musician since I was 6, been that I would be hitting my mother's cooking pans it was decided by my parents that a real drum set would be more appropiate so played drums at first for a couple of years. My first music teacher only lasted a couple of weeks been that I was a spoiled brat, but thats all I needed apperantly cause thats all it took for me to keep it going and learn by ear what I could and alot of practicing.
Then when I was 9 I decided to learn piano and keyboards, Yes I had a very old nice lady as a piano teacher, but again it seems music teachers some how only last for a short period of time so I learned what I could and again ear learning and alot of practicing took place.
When I was 14 learning guitar was a challenge and still is but love playing it and I would say its what I feel more confortable playing, This time I had found a teacher that couldn't get rid of me, my grandfather. Yes he teached me bolero style and bossanova. The singing came along with the guitar oh and a small detail, the rule from my teacher was either you sing or you wont get teached anymore guitar chords. Some how after all of that hard practice and learning I grew some wings and I met the style that would be my favorite "Rock". My grandfather hated it...lol...but some how he knew he had lost me to rock style music, which really isn't true. I honestly dig all sorts of style thanks to him, and truly believe that fusion of styles work out greatly.
Next came the inevitable. My first band at the age of 15, played covers for a couple of years and in parallel working at recording studios as a producer, nothing big but it helped me a whole lot to understand how to put all the pieces together in a song.
After, some of my co members in covers and myself decided to form a band which has lasted 8 years and still no big break for us, but cant regret it, best years of my life lots of fun, you can check those songs at www.myspace.com/hornyfrog
Right now Im working on an alternate project with music I've recorded in my studio, can't stop creating music, this is what I've been doing up to now.
Auditioned for a signed band with Skin Records from Europe and out of around 18 singers made it up to been of the top 3, close but no big break yet.
Looking for musicians for an alternate project other than my metal bands, www.myspace.com/kenhf1982 theres my alternate project music,
I've toured heavily through Texas mainly. Left my mark and played in Mercedes (TX), Matamoros (Mex), Reynosa (Mex), Edinburg (TX), Harlingen (TX)
South Padre Island (TX), Mission (TX), Monterrey (N.L. Mex), Brownsville (TX), Mercedes (TX), Dona (TX)
Rio Bravo (Mex), San Antonio (TX)
Austin (TX), Killeen (TX), Ft. Worth (TX), Arlington (TX), Dallas (TX), Shreveport (LA)
Corpus Christi (TX), Dias Ordaz (Mex), Laredo (TX) and for opening acts there's:
“ Un Loco “, “ Hombres G “, “ Vince Neil – Motley Crue “, “Silvertide”, “Moderatto”. 92.7 Alternative Rock (South Padre Island) Had my music aired played at:
102.5 EXA (Reynosa Mex)
94.5 The Rock (Mcallen Texas), 95.3 Extrema (Reynosa Mex), 97.1 The Eagle (Dallas Texas), and www.elsextocontinente.net among other sites and radio stations that most likely I wasn't aware of but showed their support by playing my songs.
I am familiar to what it is to travel long hours to play a 1 hr show. Send me a message if interested in my EPK or to jam, Im currently 28 years old and if someone out there loves making music the way I do let me know, rock on!!!

My Son

Written By: Kenneth Soria

My Son

As I walk among the same, the same
Try to blame it on the stars
When my footprints lead the way
As I see the midnight train
Day by day
And my prayers keep me strong
While the door shuts in my face

Think that you’re all alone
Think that you’re on your own my son
I will teach and you will learn
Think that you’re all alone
Find me condemned if it helps my son
You’ll forget me once I’m done oh

In abundance greed my way
Getting lost in my own greatness everyday
When there’s nothing its your way, your way.
Now my prayers keep me strong
While the door shuts in my face

Think that you’re all alone
Think that you’re on your own my son
I will teach and you will learn
Think that you’re all alone
Find me condemned if it helps my son
You’ll forget me once I’m done oh

Think that you’re all alone
Think that you’re on your own my son
I will teach and you will learn
Think that you’re all alone
Find me condemned if it helps my son
You’ll forget me once I’m done oh

Letting Go

Written By: Kenneth Soria

Letting Go

Alone, in this room that’s full of people
Been mad, and sometimes without a reason.
I am who I am
Everything changes with the seasons
And my phone is full of numbers I can’t call
I hate hypocrisy and all its relatives
Don’t fake, that you just like me cause I’m sensitive
I am who I am
And as the leaves just fly away
My phone is getting full of numbers I can’t call

Don’t blame it on the weather don’t
Don’t hurt me cause you’re getting cold
I’ve got to find a way of letting go
But you keep on appearing on my door

So dark, I see everything so clear
No sounds, but there’s echoes of my fears
You’ve come to collect
The remainders of what’s gone
Remember that you took it all
Last time you came

Don’t blame it on the weather don’t
Don’t hurt me cause you’re getting cold
I’ve got to find a way of letting go
But you keep on appearing on my door

Alone, in this room that’s full of people
Been mad, and sometimes without a reason.
I am who I am
Everything changes with the seasons
And I’m trying to rebuild what’s left inside

Take It All
Lyrics and music by: Kenneth Soria

I don’t have something to write
The ink has dried away
And there is no blood left
Cause you took all to say
I cant control the way
The way you make me feel
In this pandoras box
I locked up all my fears

Take it all
I just don’t care no more
Cause when you look at me
When you are back, cause
you will be cause Im the best you’ve had
Take it all
I just don’t care no more
But when you look at me
When you are back
Cause you will be
I’ll tell you to fuck off.

No medicine no pills
I want to feel this pain
I also have con sealed
A waiting to come out
I can’t control the way
The way you make me feel
In this pandoras box
I locked up all my fears

Take it all
I just don’t care no more
Cause when you look at me
When you are back, cause
you will be cause Im the best you’ve had
Take it all
I just don’t care no more
But when you look at me
When you are back
Cause you will be
I’ll tell you to fuck off.

Take it all
I just don’t care no more
Cause when you look at me
When you are back,
Cause you will be cause Im the best you’ve had
Take it all
I just don’t care no more
But when you look at me
When you are back
Cause you will be
I’ll tell you to fuck off.

Take it all!
Take it all!
Take it all!
Take it all!
Take it all!
Take it all!

Don't Turn Back

Don’t Turn Back
Lyrics and music by: Kenneth Soria

Feel the wind while in this road
That leads no where but you still intend to go
Feel the heavy of this load
That you carried for some ages in this world
While this rusty key unfolds
The diminished dreams that keep alive your soul
I know you saved hope for both
Guess I do believe but I’m just running low

Lets keep going don’t turn back
While I’m holding your hand
Let’s keep lighting up the candles while we can
Lets keep going don’t turn back
While I’m holding your hand
Let’s keep fighting till we see the golden land

Looks so blurry and so cold
Just keep searching and you’ll find something to hold
I know you saved hope for both
Guess I do believe but I’m just running low

Let’s keep going don’t turn back
While I’m holding your hand
Let’s keep lighting up the candles while we can
Let’s keep going don’t turn back
While I’m holding your hand
Let’s keep fighting till we see the golden land

While we’re cornered on this edge
We will grow some wings and we will fly away.

Let’s keep going don’t turn back
While I’m holding your hand
Let’s keep lighting up the candles while we can
Let’s keep going don’t turn back
While I’m holding your hand
Let’s keep fighting till we see the golden land

Don’t turn back
Don’t turn back
Don’t turn
Don’t turn
Don’t turn
Don’t turn
Don’t
Don’t
Turn

I'm Addicted To You

I’m Addicted To You
Lyrics and music by: Kenneth Soria

I’m addicted to the things you do
Even when you sleep the ones reserved for me
I’m addicted to the way we fight
To find an excuse to end with candle lights
And, when I’m gone
Hear this song
Oh oh oh

Any time without you seems so long
Every night without you seems so down
Cold and sorrow
All my life seems hollow
Let me close my eyes
And see your face again
Through this rain

I’m addicted to how hard you try
Even when you know some things are not for you
I’ addicted to how much you care
And you pushed me to do things I wouldn’t dare
And, when I’m gone
Hear this song
Oh oh oh

Any time without you seems so long
Every night without you seems so down
Cold and sorrow
All my life seems hollow
Let me close my eyes
And see your face again
Through this rain

I’m addicted to you
Any time without you
I’m addicted to you
Seems so long seems so long
I’m addicted to you
Every night without you
I’m addicted to you
Seems so down seems so down

I’m addicted to you
Addicted to you

Stones

Stones
Lyrics and music by: Kenneth Soria

Is it worth lying to ourselves
As every picture in our head is clear
We hold the key to overcome our fear
Decide to say that never more
You see the pain up close some time ago
Lets hit the root cause to the floor
We said goodbye a thousand times
Seems just pointless to deny
We have lit the candles in our eyes
Another breath another moon
Lets kill indiference of the dunes
Of the dessert that is ending soon

As we turn to stones
We will march to see the end
We’ll be standing at the end
As we turn to stones
We don’t know if this will get far
We don’t care if this will get far

I took the nails I took the doors
I took the wood and built a boat of fears
And it will never come ashore
We hear conviction in our voice
I have seen the finish line
While you keep tosing all the coins

As we turn to stones
We will march to see the end
We’ll be standing at the end
As we turn to stones
We don’t know if this will get far
We don’t care if this will get far

As we turn to stones
We will march to see the end
We’ll be standing at the end
As we turn to stones
We don’t know if this will get far
We don’t care if this will get far

As we turn to stones
We will march to see the end
We’ll be standing at the end
As we turn into stones
As we turn into stones
We don’t know if this will get far
We don’t care if this will get far

Afraid

Afraid
Music and lyrics by: Kenneth Soria

Seems like, I was running into circles until I met you.
And I have learned the lyrics of the songs I thought I’d never do.
And I, I’m a clown without a circus have no shame to entertain think I’ll be fine.

Seems like, I’m getting used to understanding all the words.
And I, have found a meaning to what I’ve seen on the walls.
And you, no matter how bad of a day you always take away the gray, think I’ll be fine.

Yet every time I go away, to stay alive.
I have a shirt that has your face, try not to cry.

And to wonder, what will happen.
When I wake up I’m not there.
To imagine what this world would be.
Without seen your face again.
Been so afraid.

Seems like, no matter what I do I have this song inside my head.
Seems like, Im running out of patience
The beginning or the end
And this, that keeps me fighting for a chance
That keeps me driving with no hands.
Will I be fine.
Cause every time I go away, to stay alive.
I have a shirt that has your face, try not to cry.

And to wonder, what will happen.
When I wake up I’m not there.
To imagine what this world would be.
Without seen your face again.
Never been afraid.
No, No

And to wonder, what will happen.
When I wake up I’m not there.
To imagine what this world would be.
Without seen your face again.
Never been afraid.

Love Prevails

Lyrics and music by: Kenneth Soria

Looking down
Many things remain unsaid
And it’s time to let go
While we drown
With the density of air
Yet you’re right besides me
Then, the silence of our thoughts

When the scream across the room
And there’s venom in our veins
When the words turn into knifes
And the tears are sour rain
I am sorry but I’m thankful cause we always know the end
Love prevails when love’s insane

Looking down
Many things remain unsaid
And it’s time to let go
While we drown
With the density of air
Yet you’re right besides me
Then, the silence of our thoughts

When the scream across the room
And there’s venom in our veins
When the words turn into knifes
And the tears are sour rain
I am sorry but I’m thankful cause we always know the end
Love prevails when love’s insane
Love prevails our love’s insane

When the scream across the room
And there’s venom in our veins
When the words turn into knifes
And the tears are sour rain
I am sorry but I’m thankful cause we always know the end
Love prevails when love’s insane

Alone

Alone

Lyrics and music by: Kenneth Soria

In this play
I see your face, no mascarade
Took so long
To figure out, whats the end game
If it was to mess my mind
Have my congrats, you were successful
If in your plot
You had me lost
I’ve lost my bearings
You can stop caring
You’ve bleached my darkened soul
To your believes in happy endings
You soked my lips with your breath
Only to dry them with my tears

Why would you just go
Why where there not questions
What just made you think
Or asume
Or just say
That I, that I.
That Im better off alone

In this play
I see your face, no mascarade
If it was to mess my mind
Have my congrats, you were successful
If in your plot
You had me lost
I’ve lost my bearings
You can stop caring
You’ve bleached my darkened soul
To your believes in happy endings
You soked my lips with your breath
Only to dry them with my tears

Why would you just go
Why where there not questions
What just made you think
Or asume
Or just say
Why would you just go
Why where there not questions
What just made you think
Or asume
Or just say
That I, that I. That I.
That Im better, that Im better off alone

Take Your Games

Written By: Kenneth Soria

Lyrics and music by: Kenneth Soria

Hey, you have encountered all your tears so full of shame
Hey, while so dramatic all your tears are false and lame
Hey, I see your ego from a mile nothing has changed
Hey, dragging your feet you need to stop I'm not the same
Yes, and when i see you I keep bringing back the days
I press rewind and see you naked
Naked soul, you are so...

Get away
Wipe that paint off from your face
Get away
You can take your fucking games

Hey, I ahve repeated this so many times I'm bored
And, you just keep coming back like I'm some crazy whore
And, I have to say that i am but that you are more
Hey, dragging your feet you need to stop but you ignore
Yes, and when I see you I keep bringing back the days
I press rewind and see you naked
Naked soul you are so

Get away
Wipe that paint off from your face
Get away
You can take your fucking games
Get away
Wipe that paint off from your face
Get away
You can take your fucking games
Get away
Wipe that paint off from your face
Get away
You can take your fucking games
Get away
Wipe that paint off from your face
Get away
You can take your fucking games
