Album Notes
The Joyful Soul of An Acoustic Artist

Ken j. Martin is one of the most soulful, yet joyful artist of his time. Born into a family of nine and raised in projects located in Atlanta's 4th Ward community, Ken j. made an early decision to stay away from the streets and trust in his God given ability to succeed.

With his faith, a guitar, and inspirations such as Sam Cook & Lauren Hill, Ken j. became a local star in Metro Atlanta. As his success and fan base grows, Ken j. is rapidly spreading his joyful soul all over the Southeast and Mid West from Miami, Fla. to Chicago, IL.

Ken J. has worked along with many HBO Def Poets such as Abyss, Jon Goode, Bonnie, GA ME, Malik, Kim, Red Storm, Tommy Bottoms, Queen Sheba, Huggy, BLU (some are not HBO Def Poets but should be) and many more. Television has been a major blessing for Ken J. as well. Ken J. has featured on BET as the Winner of The Atrium’s Exposure Contest and on BETJ with HBO Def Poet Abyss. Atlanta’s stages that have aided Ken j. in his success are Apache Café, Centennial Olympic Park, Six Flags Over GA, GA State University, Atlanta Metropolitan College, Clark Atlanta College, Jassman’s at Morehouse, and many more.

Ken J.’s major goal in life is to start an organization that inspires and helps urban youth to go after their dreams, using their talent and abilities to succeed in a positive way.

Allison Emrick

Inspiring words!
This cd is incredibly inspirational. I can't imagine my life without it. The words and sound are so sincere.

Martin has a unique style that is really moving.
Ken J. Martin's CD brings together spirit and soul in a way that moves the listener to tears. His sound reminds me of the stirring voice of Sam Cook and the spirituality of Lauryn unplugged. You'll want to listen to this CD over and over again.


Ken J. Martin is a great artist and will have a successful journey. I will continue to be a BIG fan. The CD is wonderful, His style is unique and inspirational....


Old School in a Young Man
Ken J is way hot! 3 Years 8 Days is genius.

Add to that his fusion of vocals that pull from Aaron Neville, Sam Cooke and Otis Redding, and you have the beauty of old school wrapped in a youthful sound. The messages are very encouraging and uplifting.

This CD will be a classic.

Paul Burson

I met you at the Apache Cafe last December and you sang that song \"BEAUTIFUL\" and I knew from that point on it would be part of our wedding. If I could afford it I would pay for you to join us on the ship so that you could sing it for us next June 24, 2009. I\'m going to tell everyone that if they don\'t have your cd they need to get it fast. I purchased on that night but my soon to be brother-in-law took it so i\'m going to order on right now.

Melissa Brown

Unbelievable and breathe - taking
The cd is amazing. The song beautiful brought me to tears and the rest of the songs moved me. This cd is number one in my book.


Newest fan!
I experienced Ken J. at Apache's holiday show the other night and was blown away. Me and my friends agree that he must perform Beautiful at our weddings(whenever that may be)...that song can make a tear come to a person's eye and yet have joy in their heart at the same time. Atlanta is so fortunate to have such a wonderful person share their super talent. I will be seeing more of Ken J. and I can not wait!

Its freakin Awesome!!!
Its Awesome! I wrote the songs I should know.... Just kidding. I wanted people to know I use the cd for spiritual healing as well as a reminder to myself of what my life has been. This CD will heal as you listen. You can Jam out for "3 years 8 days" then make you fall in love with someone that you consider "Beautiful" inspire you to "Hold on" in spite of all the challenges life throws at you and that you will always have a "friend".

I hope you enjoy the cd
Peace Ken j.

A Reflection of Her

The first time I saw/ heard Ken J., I was inspired and fell in love with him. The song he performed brought tears to my eyes and I wanted to hear more. Thank goodness he did an encore song!
I'm a Kindergarten teacher, and as I type, my students are taking a nap to his CD. This will be our nap time music for a while. It relaxes me and it soothes them as they rest. I love Ken J's music and I look forward to hearing more from him. Thank you for blessing the world with your talent.
