Ken Apperson Music

this is the best place to find up-to-the-minute information about where i'm playing and events i am involved with.

Growing up in the suburbs of St. Louis MO, Ken began his career in music at the age of sixteen teaching young students the basics of rock and blues. After graduating from Oakville Senior High, he attended St. Louis Community College and studied Music.
Ken’s band, Everlight, was an Alternative Pop Rock group from St. Louis. From 2006 to 2009, the group toured the Midwest region playing many St Louis hotspots. Their single Hold On was often played on 105.7 Radio-The Point, in St. Louis. Other hit singles include: All The Way, Waiting For The Rain, The Night Is Young and We’ll Get There.
Ken Apperson Band:
In 2009, Ken relocated to Tampa, Florida. Apperson performs at many venues in the Greater Tampa Bay Area and throughout Florida. In 2011, Ken released his solo album “Puzzle Pieces” which features Bad Intentions, Sinkin’ In, Soulard, Keep Dreaming and Love Thing. He also filmed a soon to be released video, “Bad Intentions.”
“For me, it’s all about the music. My life is my greatest inspiration. I try to write honest music. If something in the song didn't actually happen to me, it at least came from either people I know or some goofy idea that popped into my brain. In a world where so much of music is underwritten or overplayed, the one thing that stays original is the words that give language to what might otherwise be one more four bar chorus. These words are my life and as far as I'm concerned, they won't run out until I'm dead and gone.”
Everything I hear is influential. To narrow it down though:
John Mayer, Jason Mraz, Jack Johnson, Steve Miller Band, Kanye West, James Taylor, Stevie Ray Vaughn, Steve Miller Band, Dave Matthews Band, Maroon 5, John Mayer, Jimi Hendrix, Eddie Money, Vertical Horizon.

music to move and move through you.

This is neat.
