Ken Menard - Songwriter / Singer
Born in the State of Connecticut, he is the youngest of five children. Ken starting writing songs in the mid 1980's. Most of the songs were personal stories of his life, friends, or other members in his family.
Inspired by some of the greatest Musical Artists, (Keith Whitley, Vern Gosdin, Merl Haggard, Hank Cochran, Jim Croce, Alan Jackson, just to name a few) Ken took his inspirations and wrote some very heart felt songs over the years. (the most requested song being "You Don't Love Me").
In 1990, Ken hired Larry Lee from the Nashville Song Plugger Association to represent his music to other artists. Several very popular recording artists heard his songs, but Ken assumes the demo tapes were of very poor quality and not much happened with them. Larry Lee passed away in 2001 and Ken did not have any presence in Nashville for ten years. Now he is making his comeback through the Internet, his contacts, and local venues.
Currently a member of Nashville Songwriters Association Inc (NSAI), and listed with Broadcast Music Inc (BMI), Ken has one single on iTunes for purchase through CD Baby. Looking to release a full album later this year, Ken will continue to put 'demos' on this website for all to listen.
