Ken Hyland


In a city that's seen everything, Ken Hyland has found a way to stand out in Los Angeles. It's not so much when Hyland takes the stage with his acoustic guitar when they begin to turn their heads, but rather when they cast their eyes on his backing band - a vintage 1982 Conion C-100F - a relic from his days as a hip-hop obsessed dj. While Hyland's east coast musical roots include hip-hop, the roots of his family tree are firmly intrenched in Irish soil and include country music superstar Eddie Rabbit. Read more on Last.fm
In a city that's seen everything, Ken Hyland has found a way to stand out in Los Angeles. It's not so much when Hyland takes the stage with his acoustic guitar when they begin to turn their heads, but rather when they cast their eyes on his backing band - a vintage 1982 Conion C-100F - a relic from his days as a hip-hop obsessed dj. While Hyland's east coast musical roots include hip-hop, the roots of his family tree are firmly intrenched in Irish soil and include country music superstar Eddie Rabbit. Best known for 1980's "Drivin' my Life Away," Rabbit is a cousin of Hyland's.

Hyland's latest recorded release, Self Portrait, debuted at #12 on the FMQB singles charts and remains in the top 25 albums and many best-of-2008 lists for legions of internet fans worldwide. Built on a solid foundation of folk/rock and sprinkled with a dash of hip-hop backbeat and indie rock attitude, Self Portrait is a great listen for those looking for something a bit different then the current paint-by-number Top 40 offers. A prolific songwriter, Self Portrait is a mere drop in the bucket from the always-busy Hyland, who moved to the west coast from his South Jersey home two years ago. Hyland has recently completed two more solo albums, remixed and released three versions of his custom-made theme song for WXW wrestler "Mike Flyte," scored the music for an international commercial for a krav maga, self-defense and fitness organization (Krav Maga Worlwide), composed, performed, and produced the dramatic underscore to the independent film "A Moment in Purgatory" and is currently working on the film's soundtrack to be released in May 2009.
