Hi, I'm Ken Davies

I'm a composer and arranger of classical, pop and electronic music for concert and industry including writing for orchestra, chamber ensembles, solo voice, chorus, keyboards

I have also worked in the commercial music field performing, arranging for and producing records and music for national television and corporate video projects. In my studio I can record and produce music for advertising, film, video, TV, websites and more. 

My music has been played across North America in churches, concerts halls, radio-tv, colleges, and major new music festivals such as those sponsored by National Association of Composers USA, 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, National Endowment for the Arts, ASCAP, and Eastern Trombone Workshop. My works are published by Kenvad Music.

In addition to composing, I remain active as a private music teacher (brass). I write occasional articles and design websites. I sometimes write my own lyrics, but my wife Judy (a published poet) does that better, in addition to managing our publishing activities. 

Originally from Wisconsin, I live in south Mississippi.

Our studio cat, Darius Meow often supervises the creation of new 'mewsic' works. As Albert Schweitzer once stated, "There are two means of refuge from the miseries of life: music and cats."
