Ken Elkinson was born on August 28, 1972, in Cedar Grove, NJ. He studied classical piano at an early age, learning the instrument until he was 14, when he began to study jazz and pop styles. Elkinson picked up bass and guitar and studied music at Muhlenberg College in Allentown, PA. He played in an alternative rock group while in school and graduated in 1994 with several piano compositions beginning to take shape. He moved to Georgia where he fine-tuned his songwriting skills until he felt he was ready to record his debut CD, Midnight Conversation. He formed August Son Productions to release the album in March of 1997. After receiving some good notices, Elkinson moved to New York City and started work on his second album. While in New York, Valley Records Distribution picked up his debut for a wider release. He continued to perform live in New York and Georgia while working on the follow-up. ~ Bradley TorreanoPortions of Content Provided by Rovi Corporation.
