    Awaiting boarding at the airport, we were fortunate enough to be serenaded by Ken's voice. What an absolute treat. His smooth, soulful voice was exactly what we needed on a day like today. With each song, the tone and beauty in his voice was just one treat after the next. So incredibly soothing; the type of voice that one could listen to without ceasing. Your voice..... Truly a gem. Thanks, Trishannah and Mike

    Hi Ken, Just recently, we had our next door neighbour friends over to share some Christmas cheer. They are true country fans at heart. We were sitting by the crackling fire, chatting away and listening to Country tunes, Artists such as George Strait, Steve Earle & Dwight Yokam. Brody was streaming his music to Apple TV. Soooooo, guess who appeared next on our TV screen? Well, it was the headshot of the album cover and it read: Ken Stead; Fear Has No Place Here. The music is playing, and my neighbour says: “Who is this guy? - I never heard him before - Boy, I sure do like him and his guitar - He’s very talented”. We all chimed in, he’s a local Artist from Sherwood Park, and we talked about Project Wild. We talked a bit more (don’t worry…..it was all good things). Well, it led to videos of ‘Oh Carolina’ and ‘Civil War’. We saved the best, for last. And that’s how we ended our evening…..listening to Ken Stead! Raymond (my neighbour) absolutely enjoyed hearing your music and listening to your voice. As did we! So, in case you wonder if people are listening to Ken Stead, keep wondering, because they are! Keep making music! Don’t ever stop!!! We look forward to your next recording. And, so does my next door neighbour. Wishing you safe travels in your ventures. Always!

    I thought you were just music over the sound system at the Edmonton airport and I thought to myself, the music sounds too good to be coming through a speaker... and I was right as you were there planning live for all of us lucky travelers! You are amazingly talented!!! I just saw you are coming to Calgary in the new year and have bought tickets to see your performance. I will be purchasing your album on iTunes. So happy to hear pure, authentic, soulful sound especially these days!

    I came across your name as part of the upcoming Dar Williams concert on Aug. 4th in Calgary which I will be attending. I was, (am) blown away by "Oh Carolina" …it's become an "ear worm" for me. Further exploration on your website has convinced me that your music must become part of my collection. I can hardly wait to hear/see you in person with one of my favourite musicians, Dar W. Your honest introspection in your music is welcome. Keep on writing, playing, singing…I'll be listening.

    Dear Mr. Stead, I got to know you and your beautiful music on my very sad trip back to Germany - got caught by your soothing voice at EIA and luckily got my hands on your cd - which hasn't been moved out of my car's cd-player since then. And guess what? Everyone around loves it. I just got another digital copy for my sister. Thank you for lighting my "dark" home flight, Mr. Stead. Thank you very much for that. Be blessed!

    Wow. Such an amazing experience last night to listen -- and sing along! -- with you and Erin. Thank you for sharing your stories, your music and your genuine selves with the group that came to hear you play. That was a night to remember. :o) All the best on your pan-canadian tour...
