Electric Jazz Violist Ken Ford

Ken Ford Official Site.

I am a big fan of the electronic violinist Ken Ford.  I first saw him opening for Boney James at The Tabernacle in Atlanta and was totally blown away by his musicianship and stage-presence. He had the whole audience in less than three minutes. The following paragraphs from his website are the complete truth:

Ken develops his performances into dynamic and electrifying experiences. His years playing in Atlanta jam sessions and local events had acquired a fan base as well as sparked interest from national and international promoters. He continues to draw a diverse group of music lovers to his performances and leaves his fans in awe as they find themselves jumping out of their seats and moving to the funky, unique sounds of the electric violin.

Ken’s efforts pay him in many dividends. He now enjoys a solid and accomplished career, playing along side some of contemporary jazz, soul and R&B greats such as Ledisi, Wayman Tisdale, Wyclef Jean, and Lalah Hathaway. The list goes on and on, and it continues to grow as audiences across the nation are introduced to this electrifying instrumentalist. With three successful CDs under his belt, his first release Burnt Toast, his sophomore release Chevelle Lane, and his third release , Right Now.
