Ken Flint can only be characterized as a renaissance man of the new millenium. His mastery of the drums and percussion is undisputed worldwide. He plays double bass, left and right handed, and uses two hi-hats and ride cymbals to support his ambidexterity. This mastery has brought him past endorsements with Corder drums and Heartwood Drumsticks and Percussion Products. Not confident to rest on his laurels as a master percussionist, Ken is an accomplished guitarist, pianist, bassist, vocalist, and an innovative composer as well. Ken's release entitled, "The Groove of Life" highlights Ken at his finest. The album was recorded at Rock n' Reel Studios with Dave Greenberg of Foreigner fame producing. A featured player on the album is Al Pitrelli of Alice Cooper and White Lion fame.
Over the years Ken has been heavily in demand as a session player as well as a touring musician. Chosen from an audition of ever 50 drummers, he joined the rock band ICE and toured the Eastern coast of the United States on their "Sharp Edge of Moonlight" tour. Not only was he in charge of the drum throne on the "Sharp Edge of Moonlight" album, but was a contributing songwriter as well. Ken has landed the ASCAP Popular Songwriter's Award four years running (1992-1996). His song, "Those Crazy, Crazy Drums" has been used extensively on main stream TV shows in Europe and has received heavy airplay on European radio.
He has played for and recorded several albums with artist George Snow (Athelstan Records, NY) including his releases, "All Souls Day" and "Words Revolve Forever". More recently, Ken has been the driving drum force behind Atlantic records' band "Act of Mercy". Their hit song "Confusion" is featured in the major motion picture "Amongst Friends" (Tribeca Films). Being in demand, he was soon recruited by the band "Toys" (Secret Records, NY). Ken recorded numerous tracks with the band and he has been playing shows spanning many continents including the Frankfurt Music Fair (Musikmesse) in Germany which had an attendance of over 90,000 (Sponsored by MTV, VH-1, Gibson Guitars and more).
You've seen him on WPIX-TV (channel 11, NY) leading the Saint Patrick's Day parade in New York City as a featured member of the American Celtic Fife and Drum Corp. Due to the fact that Ken has experienced so many successes with his published music, writings and poetry, the Marquis Publication Board has decided to include him in the 13th edition of "Who's Who in the World" 1996, the 51st edition of "Who's Who in America", and the 3rd edition of "Who's Who in Entertainment".
You've seen him play and sing with Spoonful-O-Blues, and to catch him the act today you can find him playing and singing with the RapidFire band.
As you can see, a talent like Ken's is hard to hold down. He has been compared to such artists a Phil Collins, combining his percussion abilities with his songwriting, creating a sound that is uniquely his own. His talents are only surpassed by his passion for his craft.
