“It doesn’t matter if your playing a venue for one person or a million. The only thing that matters is that you play with your whole heart. Give them everything you have.”

Ken Stringfellow’s life is music. A founding member of the legendary Seattle indie-pop band The Posies, Ken played a part in the reformation of Big Star, one of the most influential bands in pop history. He has also toured with R.E.M. for 10 years, assisted with their albums “Reveal” and “Around the Sun,” and in 2005 he founded the garage rock band The Disciplines. More recently Ken has worked as a songwriter and producer for acts like Lagwagon, Damien Jurado, The Long Winters, Snow Patrol, Neil Young, Patti Smith, Mudhoney, and Death Cab For Cutie. To date, his discography spans over 200 albums. A recent solo record, 2012’s Danzig in the Moonlight, was warmly received by critics. He is currently touring with Marky Ramone and The Posies for their new album Solid States.

Although Ken was featured in Big Star: Nothing Can Hurt Me, a documentary about the infamous power-pop band, KEN – THE MOVIE will be his first acting role. In the film, you can expect to see Ken do what he does best: captivate us with his heartfelt songs. But the film also shows what lies on the other side of those songs, probing into his life and bringing his fears and vulnerabilities to the surface.
