EGG HARBOR, WI (June 20, 2016) – Ken Saydak, a native of Chicago, Illinois, has enjoyed a more than forty-year career as a musician, writer, vocalist, and producer. He currently hosts a two-hour weekly blues radio program, The Trinidaddio Blues Hours on KCRT-FM, in southern Colorado.
Ken is the pianist, organist, and accordionist on over sixty albums by national and international artists. His 2013 release, Live In La Veta (SnailWorx) follows his other solo-career recordings, It’s My Soul (Evidence Records) in 2005 and two discs on the Delmark label, Love Without Trust (2001) and his solo debut, Foolish Man (1999). All of his recordings showcase his instantly recognizable vocals and piano style, as well as his insightful, engaging, and often humorous songwriting.
Soul Bag Magazine of Paris, France writes, “Our man is a true blues pianist, all around, at the same time soft and deep, a worthy heir to Otis Spann, a champion of an instrument which has lost its prestige. In addition, he’s a sensitive composer, occasionally autobiographical, absolutely gifted for socio-economical or philosophical vignettes about daily life and human relationships. The brotherly tones of his voice help to convey his observations, sometimes the expression of someone who suddenly realizes he’s been misused. And when he takes on a song written by another talented author (Bob Dylan, Merle Haggard, or Isaac Hayes, for example), he makes it his own and extracts the underlying blues from it."
