ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Ken Koenig has been performing as a guitarist, singer/songwriter for about twenty years Now. Ken began his live performances as a guitarist for Elvis impersonator, Ron Friel, and eventually began writing his own music. Afew years later, he formed the band Daze of Green which gained some national recognition with airplay in both New York and Colorado; was voted best singer/songwriter for Kid Antrim Records and has been spotlighted on local television programs such as KXTV Channel 10’s Sacramento & Co. Daze of Green was also voted as one of Sacramento’s top five bands in a contest to open for the renowned Dave Matthews Band. Ken has worked on several projects and with some of Sacramento’s best including Jerry Jennings and the late Eric Klevin.

Ken\'s New band, \"Ken Koenig and the Band\", is comprised of first-class musicians. Ken\'s back-up band is Jeff Tuttle (drums/harmony), Paul Hawley (bass), Jerry Jennings (guitar), and Steve Del Rio (percussion)and Newly added, Tim Morse (Keys). With inspirations from legends such as Elvis Presley, Bob Dylan, The Beatles, Brian Wilson and Neil Finn, Ken’s style is all his own. His songs are a great mix of Rock, Blues, Pop, Folk, Bluegrass, and even a little old Country; something for every ear.
Ken has just released his first album as a solo artist called “Bring It Home”. Ken wrote and produced the album with some assistance from fellow Artist Jerry Jennings. The album is filled with songs that groove and songs that soothe. Definitely a variety of sounds in each song. Ken does 2 great covers of Marty Robins \"Singing The Blues\" and The Beach Boys obsure \"I\'d Love Just Once o See You\". You can expect to hear great music from Ken for years to come.

Coming Spring 2009, Ken will be releaseing \"Yesterdaze News\" a collection of songs he had recorded during his time with \"Daze Of Green\". This will be a 16 song Cd that spans from 1995-2003. A Must for Ken Koenig fans!

Bring It Home
I bought this CD at Dimple Records. I love it. What a refreshing change from some of the other music on the radio today. The arrangements, the song writing, the instrumentals, the vocals... fantastic. Kens versatility as a songwriter and artist are brought to the forefront on this CD.
You can hear a hint of musical influence from the Beatles and Dylan and much like the Beatles and Dylan, Ken has his own unique style. Great music, looking forward to the next CD. An artist this good needs to be on the radio and shared with the rest of the world. There\'s a lot of people who can use some GOOD music in their life right now. Music to help soothe the soul and ease the mind, music that will reflect on the better times.
This CD is a must listen to.

Bring It Home; 2008
The album begins with a Dylan-esque folk song called “Stay With Me Tonight” complete with harmonica, banjo, congas and a slide guitar. The second track, “Little Boats On The River” is a real toe-tapper with a smooth bass line, pretty guitar work sprinkled in, and a tasteful chord progression as the song reaches its title line. With “Dirt From My Hands” Ken breaks out the electric guitar. From the swell of feedback at the intro to the unique order of the final chords, this song is a guitar player’s dream. Be sure to turn it up at the final section of the breakdown to hear an all-fret-encompassing fusion guitar solo from Jerry Jennings. Next Ken pulls off a sparse but effective cover an obscure Beach Boys tune with “I’d Just Love To See You”. The song “No Flies On Nigel” builds slowly through the whole first and second verse, then after a pair of partial triplets it kicks into high gear. Listen for another screaming guitar solo from Jerry and check out that final chord! By the half way point on the CD you are ready for some accordion on “Gotta Love This Life”. And watch out! This accordion kicks it out on the break. It’s fun to listen to. Gotta love it! Ken pulls out what may be the biggest rocker on the disc with “Never Be The Same”. The guitar is out front, but not offensive. Here we get a small taste of what Tony Pacheco is capable of on the guitar, and the bass pushes you right along. The accordion makes its return on “Lonely Without You” with an authentic European style sound. I would be remiss if I didn’t tip my hat to Ken’s bass playing on this track. Nice! The second cover on the CD is called “Singing The Blues”. And Ken’s got some good company here as Paul McCartney has also been known to cover this one. The song “Say Goodbye” is the kind of song that makes you bob your head with the beat; slow, but somehow driving. Jerry adds some unique fills in the breakdown section. I love the transition as the song “Golden Girl” progresses into the bridge. The final track “Down The Road” just happened to be beggin’ for a fiddle break, so Ken found one that seems to fit just right.

All in all Bring It Home is very well done. There is quite a mixture with a variety of instruments and a wide range of styles. This is the CD I put on the house stereo when I’m relaxing in the backyard or when I’ve got some Sunday morning cleaning to do. Overall, it’s an excellent listen all the way through.

Tony Pacheco

Variety and then some!
This album spans many genres... Jazz, Folk, Rock, Hillbilly, you name it, its there! Sorry kids, no death metal. This is a collection of compositions to be enjoyed by those with actual musical taste. I have all of Ken\'s CDs and while he continues to out do himself with each subsequent release, I believe this is his best album to date. I can\'t wait for the next one! Until then, I\'ll continue to carry Bring it Home with me everywhere I go.

Bring it Home
When I bought the album I wasn\'t sure what type of music to expect, I was told it was a mix of everything. This is the greatest. Ken, great job. I have my favoites already and I have only had the album for a day. I love Down the road, Stay with me tonight, little boats on the River, Lonely without you..I guess if I keep going I will just list the complete list. Good Morning America should host you on their \"Second Cup Cafe\"

Fantastic
The CD is the best. I love \"No Flies\", \"Say Goodbye\" and \"Golden Girl\" the most, but all the songs are great. This album has serious radio potential. The world is starving for a talented, singer-songwriter like Ken. He deserves to be heard everywhere!!

Lonely Without You
This song just puts me in the best mood. Doesn\'t matter what\'s happening around me, I just put on track 8 and everythings good. Also really dig track 10 and 11. As a whole, the album really works for me. Great job - both songwriting and recording.

Jerry Jennings

Bring It Home
This is an amazing album. Ken is a great story teller with a diverse range of infuences. There are several \'hit\' quality songs on here that you will thoroughly enjoy. The styles range from hints of eclectic artists such as Steely Dan or the Doobies, to Dylanesque folk, to classic songwriters such as Carol King or Brian Wilson. My wife can\'t quit listening to track eight.

Christl McKenney

Lonely Without You
Just one of my favorites on this CD. It is a song about a soldier over-seas missing his loved one. With all the military away from their families right now this really pulls at the heart strings. I love the \"oldish\" sound it has and the accordion accompaniment adds to its flare. This is a must listen to CD!! Has a variety of music for all types of music lovers. Great Job! Hope to hear more in the future.

All that and a bag of chips.
This cd is a well complied album with sounds and music everyone can enjoy. I always respect artists like the Beatles who in every way shape or form go out of the way to produce a unique sound. This album is not a shy guy away from that at all. No matter what the mood your into this cd will capture that moment in at least one of the tracks. If at any time of day you feel funky "No Flies On Nigel" has what your looking for or a soothing sound just to relaxe to "Little Boats On the River" has just the taste you need. This album is a must have for all of the people who truly injoy listening to good music.
