Ken Kurland has been composing music his entire life. A native of the arts and music mecca that is New York City, he wrote his first song at age nine. Since then, he has written thousands of melodies, more recently focusing on the genres of classical, new age, jazz, world, pop, and theater. To date, he has released eighteen albums and two EPs. Ken was the composer for the musical "Delilah," produced as part of an international NYC theater festival in 2005. This starred Uzo Aduba of Orange is the New Black fame in the titular role. His song “Shaded Blue” was selected for an ASCAP Songwriters Showcase in 2011. In 2015, he won the award for Best Score for the short documentary, "Last Words" from the Best Shorts Competition.
Ken lives in the Bronx with his wife Laurie, an artist, who designed Ken’s album covers.
