Introduction: I am a singer/songwriter that performs a variety of styles and genres from Americana, Roots-Rock, Outlaw Country, and Originals. My set up is vocals, acoustic guitar, harmonicas, and a unique foot-drum, so I am basically a one-man-band. I am available for restaurants/clubs, festivals/conventions, private parties/corporate events, and weddings/receptions. I have been performing live music since the mid 1980's and would love the opportunity to play some music for your event.

Kenny was absolutely phenomenal! I couldn’t have asked for a better performance. Kenny was responsive, very nice and went out of his way to make sure he delivered. All the guests at the event loved his music. He had the perfect pitch and was very cognizant of when and what to perform. He is a quiet professional and a very talented singer/guitarist who I highly recommend!

Kenny made my simple ceremony magical with his acoustic melodies. I requested a specific song to walk down the aisle to and he and his songstress made our day very magical! I'd book Altered roots again for any special occasion.

  • What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

    I have been in and around the live music business for over 30 years. I have performed as a solo artist, a duo and in several full bands in Texas, Oklahoma, Georgia and Florida.
