Paiste Artist Since
„Paiste has always been an amazingly pristine, consistent and clean cymbal maker. They’ve always been awesome when it came to experimenting with new sounds, FX or even diversifying existing lines. But when they released the Dark Energy and traditionals lines, my respect and love for them grew exponentially.“

Ken has been tapping, banging, stomping and beating on everything since he was a small child. Listening to all genres of music from the young age of 4, Ken has grown into an extremely diverse musician and drummer, harnessing the ability to play a wide variety of musical genres with many rhythmic and melodic instruments. Ken’s main point of public recognition was CANDIRIA, a Brooklyn, NY quintet that covered a wide range of musical styles over a 14 year career. Perceived as a progressive, urban fusion wrapped in Heavy Metal, CANDIRIA’s sound provided Kenneth an environment that most musicians dream of; to challenge his talent on every level. In 2009, Ken said yes to the drum seat for Platinum selling rock band FUEL, touring for almost 4 years and writing & recording the drums for FUEL’s 2014 release, “Puppet Strings”. Presently, Ken is endeavoring two musical paths: 1 - Producing educational content on his Youtube channel and teaching drummers of all levels 2 - Releasing music and social media content as a drummer/song writer.
Sound character: Earthy, warm, dry, washy. Fairly narrow range, complex mix. Soft, giving and responsive feel. Depending on how aggressively you tighten the pair, they offer a range from dry, trashy hi-hat sounds to shattering, noisy-washy crash effects.
