Singer-Songwriter, guitarist and composer Ken Verheeke has released several albums since he became a musician in 1978. To date he has had over 150,000 album downloads through various digital sites. His tenth recording will be released on the Heart Dance Recordings label and is titled Consider the Moon & Stars. The title track, “Consider the Moon & Stars” was released by HDR as a single this past August 2017.
Ken has been a resident of South Dakota since 1978. As a child Ken’s father was in the Air Force, which required the family to move every 2 years, which heavily influenced Ken by the change of surrounding and culture. Not having any other musicians in his family, Ken tried out his first instrument – a ukulele – which didn’t last long. Later on Ken started playing the guitar at the age of 19. He found that he picked up learning the instrument quickly and it soon became his passion, still to this day playing the guitar from the moment he rises until he heads to bed.
He formed his first band Jeremiah in 1979 with long time friend Randy Canaday. They toured the Black Hills area and throughout the midwest as well. In 1984, Ken left Jeremiah and formed several Christian rock bands, Passage and Cinema. It was during this time Ken signed a publishing deal with the Eddie Crook company in Nashville as Ken was growing as a songwriter.
In 1993, Ken quit his vocation of 13 years and started touring full time. At one point, singing in approx 150 churches, campus ministries and universities in one year. In 1997, Ken signed a publishing deal with Maranatha Music as Ken’s praise and worship songs were being sung in churches world-wide. His release “Renew Me – Songs of Intimate Worship Vol One” features many of the songs noted here.
In 2001 Ken traveled to Vancouver, BC Canada to record Heart, Hands, Wood & Steel with Layton Howerton (Sparrow records, Tin Cup Recording Artist) and Roy Salmond producing at White Water Productions.
Through the years Ken has released many instrumental recordings and is planning to record a new vocal release. He continues to tour, sharing the love and peace of God wherever he goes!
Whether Ken is singing or playing his guitar… you’ll be moved to experience God’s goodness, mercy and grace like you have never experienced before! Peaceful… comforting… restful or words used by many to describe his music!
