Misinformation Age

Ken Powe

Contemporary Keyboard Jazz musical buffet by acclaimed producer and composer, Ken Powe

I dedicate this album to my dear mother, who passed away December 2016. The music contained in this album is a reflection of the different moods I feel in life moments living in these times--puzzlement, spirituality, eroticism, indignation...pretty much the full range of being human. The album's title reflects the impact the zeitgeist of a divided country has on an artist, and what results is what you hear as you hit "play" and experience all 12 stages. I use more synths and artificial orchestration in this work than I did in "Conception," but I was very careful to produce something unique and pleasing in doing so. People who know and enjoy my keyboard style will not be disappointed!

Conception

Ken Powe

A contemporary piano jazz album release from internationally acclaimed keyboardist and producer Ken Powe.

On this release, every song, every instrument, every vocal, was produced, arranged, recorded and performed by Ken Powe--only for the second time since "Journey" in 2009. The album is an expression of different contemporary styles of jazz that also infuses moments that pay homage to the classic giants of jazz from The Golden Age of the 20th century. Straight-ahead Funk, Smooth Synth Jazz, Swing, Be-bop, Fusion and Neo Soul all come together to create the musical experience that is "Conception."

Debut recording from new Jazz flautist Sherry Reeves. These are tracks that are guaranteed to please all types of music listeners. This album will make you bob your head, put you in a mellow, relaxed place, set a romantic mood, and make you want to Salsa like few other artists before. The tracks are expertly produced by industry veteran Ken Powe, who has worked with many of the music industry's big names in R&B, Jazz, Blues, Gospel, and Classical genres since the 1990's. There is definitely so much to like on this album! For starters, "5 A.M." has already launched with its own professionally produced music video (viewable on YouTube and Vimeo). "Aqua Verde" is a spicy toe-tapper for the Latin lovers. "Nightlife" grabs those who like listening to newer Jazz artists like Robert Glasper.

Journey

Kenneth Powe

A blend of electronic, acoustic, and natural sounds that creates a relaxing environment and reduces stress.

Journey is a work that was inspired by emotions and experiences that transcend culture, genre, ideology, philosophies, and lifestyle. It comes about as a result of a musical artist exploring sounds and moods that can be spiritually accessed from the perspective of being human and having the ability to feel. Since life is a journey we must all take, it is essential and cathartic to pause occasionally and quietly reflect upon its meaning—removing the artificial, often trivial, and potentially harmful stresses and concerns that often emerge either because of or against our individual will.

Journey was created and recorded by Kenneth Powe, who currently lives in a small town outside Birmingham, Alabama. His musical career began playing for various black churches around Alabama and developed shortly after earning a B.A. Degree in English at the University of Alabama in 1991. While in Tuscaloosa, he played keyboards in local bars and nightclubs as a member of a 70’s and 80’s R&B themed band named Desyre. Once on his own, he became Vice President/A&R of a small but established local recording label, QUE Records. In this role, he continued to perform concerts and record with recognized artists like Brian McKnight, Luther Ingram, The Jackson Southernaires, Rance Allen, Harvey Williams, Dottie Peoples, Dizzy Gillespie, Arturo Sandoval, and Gerald Albright. His most recent studio endeavor was as the featured keyboardist on The Reginald Jones Band CD, Experiences.

Even though Kenneth Powe has been a writer, performer, producer, arranger, and studio musician for many different artists for about twenty years, Journey is his first solo project released publically and the first he has done of its kind.
