Who I Am
The Purpose of Who I Am is to create a welcoming community, based upon a love and appreciation for music and a love and respect for all people.
Ken chose the name Who I Am because it calls for complete honesty and authenticity in the music. When Who I Am steps on stage, the GOAL is that the music played, the vibe, and interaction with the fans would be an honest representation of the purpose and intent of Who I Am. As one fan put it, “this is the real deal.”
Ken Holt has played in bands since High School, through College, and beyond. Recording for MCA, Ken recorded two albums and opened for The Who and other major rock acts.
Strumming guitars with family in Jacksonville, FL, honest, countryfied music was also engrained in Ken's lexicon. Telling stories with a twang was a family tradition.
Rock and Roll, classic country, all arranged in a British pop format, creates a new blend of Americana music. Performed live, Ken brings a welcoming spirit and a natural professionalism to every show.
Of the new album, Who I Am…with you, one reviewer writes, “Ken has the rare ability to craft challenging song structures and instrumental textures that support the message his words convey. The 12 songs on Who I Am…with you are a call to the masses to treat the people and things they encounter with care, respect, and love.”
The first Video from the album, Claim This Land, can be seen on YouTube. The full album, Who I Am...with you, is available both physically and digitally on www.whoiam.band, with streaming on Spotify and other streaming services.
Who I Am...with you
Musician, performing artist and storyteller, Ken Holt is first and foremost a songwriter. Holt has the rare ability to craft challenging song structures and instrumental textures that support the message his words convey. And Holt has much to say...on Who I Am...with you. It is a call to the masses to treat the people and things they encounter with care, respect, and love. John Leach, Brevard Live, Florida.
