SAN DIEGO, CA, July 16, 2014 /24-7PressRelease/
-- After a long and successful career as author, poet, songwriter and performer, Ken Lehnig has released his first solo album, The American Music Show. This new collection showcases the finely honed lyrics, beautiful melodies and exceptional musicianship that have brought Mr. Lehnig accolades over the years. Ken has played with and written for many respected artists, and as a music journalist has interviewed hundreds of up-and-coming artists.
The American Music Show, released by American Windsong Music, is deeply rooted in the traditions of American music, from country ballads to down and dirty blues; cool jazz to folk- and gospel-inspired tunes. Each song is a witness to the struggles and joys of life, sung with such heart that you know the artist has been there; done that.
Robert Cowan, the "Harmonica Man," as longtime harp player for the Neville Brothers, says of the album: "It is a priceless example of what song writing in an Americana set of styles can be! A new set of classics. It was a real honor to be invited to play with all of these gifted talents."
