Hi, I'm Ken Davies
I'm a composer and arranger working
in classical, pop and electronic
music for concert and industry including
writing for orchestra, chamber ensembles, solo voice, chorus, keyboards
and for film, video, TV, advertising, websites and more.
My concert works have won some awards along the way and
have been performed across America at
major new music
festivals like Society of Composers, Southeastern Composers
League, Christian Fellowship of Art Music Composers, Electronic Music
Midwest and International
Trombone Festival. I've received awards from Mississippi Arts
Commission, ASCAP, South Arts and Eastern Trombone
Workshop. My works are published by Kenvad
I have also worked in the commercial music field performing, arranging for and producing records and music for national television and corporate video projects.Originally from Wisconsin, I presently live in south Mississippi on the part of the Gulf Coast made famous in 2005 by the hurricane Katrina and in 2010 by the BP oil spill.
In addition to
composing, I remain active as a private
(brass). I write
occasional articles and design websites.
I sometimes write my own lyrics, but my wife Judy (a published poet)
does better, in addition to managing our publishing activities.
Our two cats, Little Fluff and Darius Meow often supervise the creation of new works. As Albert Schweitzer once stated, "There are two means of refuge from the miseries of life: music and cats."
