Kenny Blacklock is a composer and multi-instrumentalist based in Northern California. Growing up in a very musical family, he started writing music in his early teens, at first chamber music in imitation of classical composers, then later jazz fusion and progressive rock. He studied music composition and arranging at Berklee College of Music and at San Francisco State University, where he earned an MA in Interdisciplinary Humanities.
He has performed on violin, mandolin, guitar, and keyboards with many Northern California bands in a variety of styles including Bluegrass, Celtic, Fusion, Jazz, Rock and Western Swing. He purchased his first synthesizer, a Yamaha SY22, in 1991 and started writing electronic music in the mid-90’s using a 16-track midi sequencer and a Fostex 4 Track Cassette Recorder.
