Las Vegas, Nev. (PRWEB) September 22, 2005
Ken Keating was a success in one of the world's greatest entertainment meccas by the time he was 17, performing with his group on the Strip in Las Vegas before he was out of high school. And when he auditioned for The Liberace Foundation, he won not one, but two scholarships Â one for piano and another for voice. Music was the path and his journey had begun.
But life takes funny -- and interesting -- turns. The assumption was he would continue on with his music, playing and performing. Instead, he chose a career in corporate America to provide the security and comfort he wanted for his family (all of whom are musically gifted). But he never lost the music. And now, secure and successful, he has returned to his first love -- performance.
What started out as an idea to record a few songs for friends and family has turned into the amazing CD, Just One Lifetime, released today by Sound Experience Records. It's not merely a collection of songs that have a story or a message individuallyÂ although it does work on that level. Ken has accomplished what few musicians have ever attempted - taking existing songs from many genres, he has created a story we can all relate to. It's the story of a life Â a life full of wonder, of love, of pain, of healing and redemption.
Each song builds on the one before: first love, marriage, children born and cherished. Followed by conflict, concern, fear of loss. Love regained and celebrated Â and the knowledge that all will be well if "We Can Be Kind."
Ken sings about what matters most Â the little things that ultimately mean so much Â and those monumental moments when we find our life's course changing. If you are just starting out in life with everything before youÂ or if you are "of a certain age" and reflecting on a life lived interestingly, Ken's music has a message for you.
Ken Keating has returned to his music Â a prodigy no more. Now he brings a maturity and understanding that elevates the music to new heights. His voice will touch your heart and his songs will warm your soul. Honest and intimate, Ken's tenor is evocative of early Johnny Mathis or a mature Josh GrobanÂ he's even been called "an American Helmut Lotti." It's a voice you will want to hear again and again. This is a man who has lived his life and he's sharing all the things he's learnedÂ it's a journey you don't want to miss.
