Belly Up Tavern Show

Just wanted to throw out a quick announcement that I’m performing at the Belly Up Tavern on January 29 as a part of an awesome acoustic line-up! Rhyme-slinger Rob Deez will be joining me on stage. The night will also feature performances by Rob Bondurant, Tolan Shaw and Yovee! I’ve performed on the Belly Up stage many times but this will actually be the first time… Read more →

Welcome Back (Almost)

What a strange ride the last six months have been. I didn’t think I’d come away from everything that has happened with anything other than a few scars and some new hardware in my hips, but I have to admit that I have been learning and experiencing new things non-stop since late-November. I’ve been back in San Diego for about… Read more →

SanDiegoAcoustic.com Interview

Check out this interview I did with sandiegoacoustic.com. I know it’s a little “tl;dr” (too long; didn’t read) but hopefully this gives a little bit of insight to how conflicted and sarcastic of a person I am! Many thanks to Ken and Dave for reading, proofreading, editing and re-reading my thousands of words. Also, stay tuned for a very special… Read more →

Neverisms and T-Shirts

One of my favorite people in the San Diego music scene is fellow singer/songwriter, Dave Boodakian (aka Dave Booda). While I don’t get to spend very much time with him, nor are we extremely close, I have watched him become a strong advocate for believing in one’s self. He has these philosophies about being successful and life which are obviously… Read more →

New Album Starts Now

With everything that happened last year (new band, the SDMA nomination, touring, new songs, new opportunities, etc.) I finally feel like the time is ripe for a full length band album! My last two efforts (download them here) were good records but really were an experiment with songwriting for me. I enjoy the intimacy of both of those sounds but… Read more →

The Return of Pay What You Want: A Holiday Gift

If you’ve been to a show in the last 6 months or so, you may have noticed that I’ve stayed true to my promise to offer “pay what you want” pricing on my music (click here to read the original post). I’m happy to announce that this has been a great success and I’ve been accomplishing exactly what I’ve hoped to… Read more →

Adult Books Tour Coming Your Way

Rob, Isaac and I are officially embarking on the “Adult Books Tour” tomorrow! Check out all the tour dates here. I have to say, it has not been without it’s challenges. Even as we speak, dates are been moved and rearranged so please check the schedule frequently. We will also be making announcements via the Adult Books Tour Twitter, our… Read more →

Tour Dates Announced

If you remember from the last post, Rob Deez, Isaac Cheong and I are heading out on the road for a bunch of shows up and down the West Coast! Our good friend and co-conspirator Travis of PunkRockPaint is also going to join us as our tour manager/driver/videographer as we get into all sorts of trouble on the road. Without… Read more →

2010 Winter Tour Promo Poster

Hey everyone! I’m hitting the road again for a Winter West Coast tour called “Always the Best Man Tour” with my good friends Isaac Cheong (visiting from Australia) and Rob Deez! I have no idea what’s in store for us on this trip but we’ll be sure to share all of the antics with you as it happens! Please check… Read more →

Introducing the Band

I can’t seem to stop bragging about my new band! It’s like they have completely re-energized me and are taking my music to places I’ve only daydreamed about. Check out this little promo video I made earlier: Instead of rehashing everything that I’ve been putting out to the world about these guys, I thought I might do something a little… Read more →

2010 San Diego Music Award Nomination

I was blessed to find out that I have been nominated for a 2010 San Diego Music Award in the Best Acoustic category! I can’t tell you how much of a surprise it is for me and how completely floored I am. I am unbelievably honored to be even considered, especially since the category I am nominated in is filled… Read more →

Pay What You Want

I’ve been mulling this idea over for a long time and I think it’s finally time to put this into action. A few years ago, Radiohead implemented the idea of “Pay What You Want” for their outstanding album “In Rainbows” which people went onto their website and had the option to literally pay what they wanted to pay for their… Read more →

2010- Kenny Eng (BETA)

Happy New Year everyone! Yes, it’s already 11 days into the year but I’m going to keep saying “Happy New Year” until I stop accidentally writing 2009 on everything. I’ve already had a busy year with “Live from Lestat’s” CD release, a few BIG shows later on in the year and the big media push for the last few weeks… Read more →

Next Steps

June was probably the craziest month of being a musician that I’ve ever had. Aside from going on a ten-day tour of the West Coast, I also had non-stop gigs at the San Diego Fair as a solo act and as the electric guitar player in the John Hull Band who competed in the Musicpalooza contest. A grand total of… Read more →
