ABOUT THE SINGER
Ken Bascue is a trained Baritone who began his musical journey as a young teen
in Schenectady, NY. He moved to Manhattan in the early '80s after tragically
losing his parents in a car accident. His mother, a church soloist with
a hauntingly beautiful soprano voice was an inspiration to Ken as a child.
In 1983 Ken began training at the Singers Forum in Manhattan with Andy Anselmo
and John Harris. He was then groomed by veteran nightclub entertainer, Johnny King.
Ken went on to entertain as Johnny's protégé at the Granit Hotel and at various nightclubs and dinner theaters in and around NYC. Ken has also appeared and performed on
The Margarita Pracatan Show, The Dr. and the Diva, and Manhattan's, Jazz Corner.
Keeping a Corporate America day job in the city as a Conference Coordinator held
a roof over his head and paid the bills...but all through his early years,
he was writing songs with hopes of someday recording an album.
Recently, Ken's dear friend Kimberley Locke (of American Idol fame) gave Ken
an out-of-this-world Christmas gift! It was studio time to begin recording again,
because years had passed, due to his focus and dedication to his day job,
he'd almost let this dream die forever. And, as if that wasn't enough,
she then featured him singing in the "Dreams Come True" episode of her
new television show, The Dr. and the Diva! Imagine how fantastic to perform
with Kimberley on national TV and to talk about the importance of
pursuing a lifelong dream. Ken was ecstatic!
This inspired Ken to start a collaboration with JC Santalis of Raw Recording Studio
who then suggested the very talented producer Jon Cobert for the album project.
Ken is thrilled to finally have recorded the songs he's written throughout his life
and finally released his debut album, Make A Difference!
He launched a Kickstarter artist funding campaign to help with his dream which
was also successful, thanks to family, friends, and new fans. Ken's hope is to
inspire others to follow their dreams and to let people know.
Age is only a number...you need to go for it.
Presently, Ken has reunited with European producer Roland Rand to co-write
"Love Has Taken You Away" as well as the newly released "Right To Love" and
"Thank You" found on most all streaming venues and YouTube.
