Reflections on the passage of time and readiness seem appropriate for the beginning of a new year. Here's a sneak peek at a new song which Ken wrote with his friend Arthur Renwick, which will be on the upcoming Ken Whiteley and The Beulah Band CD to be released in February on Borealis Records. They can't wait to take their show on the road and they're very excited to have joined the roster at AIM Artists in Motion Booking Agency.
