Episode 45 - Kenneth Pattengale

Music Makers and Soul Shakers

In March of 2016, I'll be releasing a weekly podcast that delves into the lives, careers and studio experiences of musicians, music producers, and even a few music biz-types who have been involved in excellent music. Some will be artists you recognize, others will be the musicians behind the scenes you may not be aware of, but each one has a great story to tell and brings a perspective to great music that will be of interest to music fans of all kinds. Stay tuned here and subscribe if you'd like to hear each episode as it gets released starting in March!

My guest this week is guitarist and songwriter Kenneth Pattengale. Pattengale makes up one half of the killer duo The Milk Carton Kids, which formed in 2011 when Pattengale teamed up with fellow songwriter Joey Ryan. The duo formed a fast chemistry which relies on tight and intricate harmony singing, and the slippery guitar playing of Pattengale. Together they have made 4 albums, and have had an incredible run over the last 5 years working with Joe Henry, T-Bone Burnett and Ryan Freeland, receivig a Grammy nomination, and touring all over the world. Previous to the Kids, Kenneth was a solo artist living in LA, making solo records under the radar and getting really good at Scrabble. I've been a fan of these guys since seeing them a few years ago at Folk Alliance and then at the Americana Conference in Nashville. Recently, my friends in Birds of Chicago, another killer band, did an EP at my studio and Kenneth was a guest. We had a good hang, played some music together and then he was nice enough to drop by and talk about his young but extremely successful career. Enjoy my conversation with Kenneth Pattengale, and please subscribe to the podcast for free on iTunes!
