ABOUT

My name I Kensaku and I moved here 2 years ago this comming September. My songs are are original, and I primarily play guitar, but I can compose and play other instruments. There are a few folks here that have worked with me from time to time over the years but they are mostly too busy to regularly get together. So, I am seeking folks that can get together late Fridays, or on Weekends. I live in old lou, and my apt. is rather tiny, so one person will have to have space. My sound has been called dark celtic folk. My vocals are considered not of the norm and somewhere inbetween dylan and waits.
