ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Morton's 6th solo effort Contenders was released in late 2011 to rave reviews in Relix, American Songwriter, Vintage Guitar Magazine, Performer Magazine, Georgia Music Magazine, Elmore Magazine, Blurt.com, Maverick (UK) and more! Additionally, Contenders charted on Americana radio in both the U.S. and Europe.

"In describing the music the sound Ken Will Morton's maintained over the course of his short but prolific career, the words 'austere' and 'authentic' generally tend to come to mind...Contenders, the latest in a series of strikingly affecting offerings from this Athens Georgia homeboy, is especially engaging."
Blurt.com

“Despite releasing six solo albums in the last 10 years, including two released simultaneously, Americana artist Morton remains original and interesting. Even quirky tines like ‘Rough & Rumble’ are smart and impassioned, while the ‘Love Minus Zero/ No Limit’- inspired ‘Broken Windows’ is flat-out endearing.”
Vintage Guitar Magazine

""Bob Dylan meets Steve Earle' voice with some impressive instrumentation....Songs like 'Rough and Tumble', 'Powder Keg', and 'Too Soon' tell tales of road living, hard drinking, and down on luck and love losers who keep getting up in the face of adversity. Contenders is worth a listen."
Examiner.com

:”…one of the best voices in Athens music.”
