Biography

Ken Elkinson saw his musical dreams come to fruition when he released his debut CD of original piano solos in March, 1997. Entitled Midnight Conversation, Ken’s CD finds its roots in Pennsylvania at Muhlenberg College. It was at Muhlenberg that he found many comforts and sources of inspiration; its artistically-minded, close knit community and close proximity to New York City helped shape Ken’s outlook and composition. After a short stint with a college rock band, Ken began paving the way for his solo career during his junior year. He attributes much of his initial determination and songwriting success to his college’s musical facilities. “I never had to wait to play a beautiful baby grand piano, and this certainly kept the creative process flowing,” recalls Ken.

A New Jersey native, Ken selected Tullen Sound Recording in Morristown, New Jersey to begin the initial steps of the recording process in the summer of 1994. Soon after these sessions, he moved to Atlanta, Georgia, which became his home for the next three years. Ken spent nearly a year in post-production both planning and saving to finance his release. “On a whim, I asked the popular New York illustrator, Dave Cutler, to paint my album cover. With paintings starting in the tens of thousands, I never thought that he would consider me, with my shoestring budget.
