Kenny Schick / Bio

Kenny Schick's songs are more like expressionist paintings -- he creates an image rendered using the color of sound. His mind is not simple and consequently neither are his words, his musical style or his way of playing. "I hear the song in my head, and then I try to play it. Sometimes it can take years to balance out what I would like to play against the parameters of the instrument" he says. His lyrical and sound choices reflect the struggle to balance opposites -- personally, culturally, and aesthetically. No single musical genre seems to adequately describe Kenny Schick's music - having performed in so many of them during his life long career, he just sees all of them as colors on his palette and enjoys blending them all together. Like expressionist painting, Kenny's songs are not about an obvious understanding of an idea -- one must simply experience it, feel it, and become a part of it. When Kenny performs, the audience and the artist become one in the creative process and the listener decides what the imagery means to them.
