Kenneth J Nash is a veteran of the music scene, years spent on the road as a musician and DJ has taken its toll on his personal life, and provided the impetus and material for his songs.
He draws on his influences (Cohen, Waits, Cash, Reed, Hardin & Cave) to write songs that capture the darker moments of his past. Love, addiction and regret feature heavily in his material as he narrates his personal journey through the human condition. "I find the whole experience very cathartic, to encapsulate pain into dark beautiful music".
Over the last few years he has written and released four LP's under his own name, (In the company of ghosts, Under a gypsy moon, We all belong and The brewer & the dealer) which feature some very talented musicians. He has played at Festivals, Folk clubs & Acoustic showcases throughout the UK and has been featured on radio, in press and on podcasts worldwide. His songs have been used on several compilation LP's including Independent Music News who picked him as one their 'hot tips for 2013'.
With two more LP's in the pipeline and lots of bookings in his gig diary he is set to continue taking his Dark Folk stories to a wider audience.
