Singer/Songwriter, Ken Stacey released his highly anticipated solo CD, I Will Still Be Me, on July 31st, 2008.
Ken Stacey, certainly no newcomer to the American music scene, has achieved a long and impressive list of professional accomplishments. Notably, he earned both Gold and Platinum Records for his vocal contribution to Sir Elton John’s “One Night Only” Greatest Hits Live. He has also toured with Elton John as a background singer and acoustic guitarist. Additionally, Ken’s work includes national and international appearances with Progressive Rock’s super group Ambrosia, as lead singer, replacing David Pack.
Original in his musical style, Ken resonates moving vocals and is known for his soulful, poignant Americana Rock, garnished with an occasional sprinkling of British and Latin influences, combined with a musically savvy awareness of Contemporary Pop. It is this innate ability to render uniquely intriguing vocals that have made Ken a sought-after and successful backing singer for legendary musical vocalists, including Neil Young, Bette Midler, Julio Iglesias, Bonnie Raitt, Phil Collins and the late Luther Vandross, among many others. Ken’s influences are equally diverse ranging from the Beatles, U2, Emmylou Harris, Daniel Lanois and Donnie Hathaway.
Ken Stacey’s CD, "I Will Still Be Me", features contributions from Davey Johnstone, Bob Birch and Guy Babylon and John Mahon, all members of the Elton John band, David Walsh, former guitarist of The Exies, Greg Leisz from the kd lang band and Bruce Watson, top session guitarist (Sarah Bareilles).
