Southern rock singer/songwriter/guitarist Kenneth Brian of The Kenneth Brian Band sits down to talk about his latest album, Keys To The Kingdom. He tells us what it was like writing the record in Hollywood and recording in Joshua Tree, California. The conversation leads to Kenneth grabbing his vintage 1952 Les Paul and giving us a thorough run down of the specs of this awesome instrument. He also talks about his tattoos, his disdain for racism, and meeting Steve Perry in Starbucks.

Hello everyone! My name is Scott Itter, but some know me as Dr. Music. I am a music journalist and photographer out of the Chicagoland area, and I have been in practice for over 20 years. I grew up in the 70’s with two big brothers that showed me all kinds of rock and roll. As I grew older I ventured out into different genres like jazz, funk, folk, and whatever else I could wrap my ears around. As I read every liner note and every Circus and Hit Parader like they were the Old and New Testament, I came to realize that I just love sound and appreciate all the people that create it.
I later became a stay-at-home dad and started honing my writing and photography skills to keep my mind from turning into mashed peas. My kids are now adults, my mind is only slightly mushy, and I am thrilled to have the honor of presenting my work to you!
