The Machias Community Church has been the center of our spiritual lives since my family and I moved to the Everett, Washington area in 1978. When it came time to put together this, my first solo recording, it seemed appropriate to fill it with songs of faith. -Ken Ainsworth, April, 2000 ************ Ken Ainsworth, folk-rock musician, singer and songwriter, has been performing professionally for over 30 years. In addition to his solo act, he has appeared with with the rock band Mystic Procession, the contemporary folk group Night Whale and the The Rondos, playing classic Rock 'n' Roll. On Sunday mornings, he can be found leading music at the Machias Community Church in Machias, Washington. Over the years, Ainsworth has written over 200 songs, a number of which appear on recordings by Night Whale. His most recent efforts, the CDs 'Machias Morning' and 'There's Only One', consist of songs written about his Christian faith. Ainsworth's style is best described as a blend of folk-revivalist lyricism laced with a harder edge tooled from his rock 'n' roll experience. He is an energetic and personable performer, but is most satisfied with writing and recording new songs, which he does in his Everett, Washington studio.
