"And no one puts new wine into old wineskins; otherwise the new wine will burst the skins and it will be spilled out, and the skins will be ruined. But new wine must be put into fresh wineskins." - Matthew 9:17
The multi-talented Ken Gober is bursting on to the gospel music scene with his new style of gospel, "Rhythm & Praise". With the release of his new single, "When You Praise," Ken is carving his own niche in the gospel music industry.
The singer/songwriter was born in Gary, IN, a city not necessarily heralded for the numerous talented recording artists that began their music careers in the steel city.
While growing up in Gary was a challenge, music served as a constant and an inspiration throughout Ken's life. Ken's musical ability and talent was evident at an early age and helped to keep him away from some of the negative distractions of the streets.
While Christian values were definitely taught and instilled in Ken throughout his young life, like the prodigal son, he strayed away and became hooked on drugs and alcohol and at a young age, found himself in drug rehabilitation and at the bottom of his life but through God's grace and mercy, Ken was able to turn his life around and pursue his music career.
During the early 90's Ken moved to Atlanta, GA and joined a touring show band, "Exotique" as lead male vocalist. The band performed throughout the United States and internationally including China, Japan, France, Spain, Italy, Asia, the Middle East and the Caribbean.
Ken was called by God in 2003 and he made the life changing decision to firmly anchor his soul in faith and turn his gifts and talents to the Lord and go back to where it all started - in the church! Because of the awesome anointing put on his life he has dedicated the rest of his life to serving and ministering to God's people.
Along with live performances, Ken has appeared in three gospel stage plays and wrote and produced all music for Mack Productions stage play, "Rachel's Blues".
Studio credits include background vocals for LaFace recording artist McArthur. He also recently produced an album for Philadelphia native and playwright, Donald Welch.
With a fresh anointing and new wine for the soul, God has truly birthed a special talent that will touch the hearts of God's people and proclaim his truth to the world.
