Who I Am
If you Google Who I Am, you may find non-profits, self help advice, and even Pete Townshends autobiography. You will also find a new blend of Americana music from 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.
Why the name Who I Am? 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. In other words, as one fan put it, “this is the real deal.”
Ken Holt has played in bands since High School, through College, and beyond. With New England band, The Blend, Ken recorded two albums with MCA and opened for The Who and other major rock acts.
Mary Kate Brennan and Ken first met while each was performing at venues in and around Melbourne, FL. The result, MK recorded vocal tracks for 2017's Who I Am...with you. Who I Am, the DUO has been performing together ever since,
bringing a welcoming spirit and a natural professionalism to every performance.
Americana music has at its core the roots of original American music. Rock and Roll, roots country, and 60’s influenced pop are all evidenced in 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 and Single 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 digital or streaming services. In other words, It's out there. Ladies and gentlemen, this is Who I Am!
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.
