DISCOVER: Ken Will Morton

So, I've been listening to the music of Ken Will Morton lately...and I gotta say, this guy's good. Really good. His style reflects the sound of legendary talents like: Tom Petty, Bruce Springsteen and Bob Dylan. With the talent to uniquely infuse various forms of rock - classic, alt, indie, and southern - Ken Will Morton is a true American rocker! I love that his music has a lot of blues and folk in it, and his lyrics are honest and soulful.

It's clear that Ken has developed his own signature style...and it's awesome. Check out the video below of his song "Devil in Me".

An established musician, Ken is not a newbie to the music scene. In fact, he's toured most of the U.S. and even in Ireland! Festivals he's appeared at include: SXSW, AthFest, Joshua Tree Music Festival, etc. So, it may have taken a little while for his talents to reach my ears. But, I'm glad it finally did! Now the rest of you should discover him if you haven't already!

Based out of Athens, GA (a local talent!) I'm looking forward to catching one of his shows out there next month. I suggest you do the same, if you can. And for us lucky ones in the South... he's got several show dates lined up! In fact, there's one this Friday!
