Ken Totushek


Ken Totushek is an internationally known singer/songwriter, acoustic instrumentalist and worship leader.  As a recording artist and engineer, Ken has produced 8 CDs of inspirational work since 1994.  Ken has performed in Japan, Europe, the Middle East, and throughout the U.S.  Ken defines himself as a musician living and sharing “freedom Songs”.  His music is down to earth, inviting, and tends to capture the heart of the listener as he leads one through a calming and hope filled musical journey.  Ken plays venues worldwide, which have ranged from concerts, house concerts, hospitals, restaurants and pubs to leading worship at international church services and conferences.

Along with music, Ken continually studies the impact of guitar construction, woods used, age, playing style, etc. on tone, inspiration, mood, and spiritual connection.  Ken's musical theme has to do with real stuff of life—those life experiences which mold and shape who we really are, good and bad, easy and hard.  A message of unfettered hope in the midst of life’s pain and joys is woven throughout all of Ken’s music.  He values highly his faith, his family, and his friends.  

In September of 2013 Ken was awarded Japan’s Kansai Music Conference “Building Bridges Through Music” Award.  Ken’s latest CD is “Sacred Meditations--Solo Acoustic Guitar Instrumentals".  The CD was recorded solo using an 1870 Martin 1-27 guitar.  Ken resides with his wife Kathy in both Barrington, RI and Arlington, VA.

“Releasing a double CD is always heroic act for musician. Especially in self-financed business. Ken has got something to say and I'm happy he made the effort pushing it all the way through to share it with us. The result is remarkable - two CDs full of positive, original music. I'm proud to be part of it with my violin. I wish Ken all the best and many happy listeners all around the globe.  Keep going, Ken.” (T. Mach, Czech Republic)
