Ken Mickey, Singer, Songwriter, Guitar Player. Released STAND august 2008. Often times, a musician's first album can come off as immature or underdeveloped. It may seem that the artist just hasn't had enough playing and writing experience to fully define their sound. Ken Mickey, however, began playing guitar with other bands and finally began actually writing his own music 5 years ago. As a result, his new album 'Stand' does not suffer from this learning curve. His brand of Folk/Americana has a style that will certainly find many willing ears. Dan Porter A&E Editor technicianonline Ken Mickey's Stand sure carries the kind of weight that one might expect from a much more experienced musician. He strings together the kind of classic country melodies that one would expect from singers such as Wayne Hancock or Joe Ely along with enough pop sensibilities to attract a crossover audience. The heartfelt songwriting is straightforward and simple, but communicates ideas that are greater than the sum of it's parts. Much of the depth of his work lies in a sort of implied, or even imagined, history behind most every thought. Ryan Snyder Yes Weekly.
