Edmonton singer-songwriter Ken Stead is known for silencing a room to a whisper, but with his sophomore release, Civil War, he proves capable of starting an uproar. Civil War is an earnest portrait of the domestic, the conflicts present in the everyday, and how one’s struggle with themselves bleeds into their relationships and the larger political climate. With an open guitar case and heart, Ken Stead started by playing to commuters and computers at the airport, saving up every coin he earned to fund his debut record, Fear Has No Place Here. Now, Ken Stead has a firm foothold in the Canadian roots community, having graced the stages and sessions of several folk festivals and country festivals, rodeos and fairs, and countless live music venues. Whether playing solo, or with his 5 piece band, Ken Stead makes every room feel like home. A generous demeanor, a delicate wit, and an empathetic understanding of audiences of all shapes, his performances are as true and honest as the songs themselves.
