Fear Has No Place Here
Folk-based singer/songwriter Ken Stead recently returned to Edmonton after five years living Stateside. His new album Fear Has No Place Here is his first full-length after a couple of EPs. He has a warm and earnest voice that will draw you into his gently lyrical and introspective material, while the production work of Winston Hauschild is clean. An album that'll stand him in good stead. Of note: Stead was a potential sprinting star before injury curtailed that dream. At nine, he appeared in a Broadway version of Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat alongside Donny Osmond.
Stead toured out West last month. On Dec. 13, he opens for Wil at Brixx in Edmonton. Let's hope he makes it to eastern Canada next.
