Ken Koenig's Acoustic Vibrations "Video of the Day" review by Alex Cosper on April 26, 2012

Ken Koenig shares his organic music and caring view of the world in this interview. His love of The Beatles can be felt in his music while at the same time he delivers his own unique sound. He credits the world's most successful band as an inspiration that helped him navigate his way through life. In this video shot April 25, 2012 Koenig performs an acoustic version of his meaningful and melodic tune "Stay With Me Tonight," which is on his 2008 album Bring It Home. Four years later he has planned a new release for June called The Organic Life, which contains a jazz-flavored gem called "Winter of Innocence," a single from last year. Ken's music is available on iTunes (see below) and CDBaby.

Ken has performed frequently in the Sacramento area at Downtown clubs and open mic venues mixing classic covers with his own originals. One of his cover recordings is the sixties hit "The Rain, The Park and Other Things" originally by the Cowsills. At shows he enjoys covering The Beatles, Bob Dylan and Crowded House. While his main instrument is guitar, he also plays bass, drums, piano, mandolin and ukelele on his recordings. His songs tell deep thoughtful stories that generate positive energy. While he earns a living playing music, he is not interested in becoming a rich superstar, but enjoys sharing music with the world. His focus is helping his family and other people.

Update: June 23, 2013

Ken released his album The Organic Life in the summer of 2012. He promoted the album with many live shows through 2013, especially at Vintner's Cellar in Folsom. His daughter, Amanda Koenig, made her first professional musical performance in February 2013 at Vintner's. Ken continues to mix famous cover songs of the 60s/70s/80s/90s with his originals. His song "Beautiful Day" on Organic Life is one of his catchiest songs to date. He is crafting a model for other indie artists to follow, as he keeps audiences entertained from start to finish with covers and a growing list of excellent original songs.
