- Alex Dutilh, Jazzman Magaine, Paris,
"With his rich baritone voice and interpretive skills, singer Ken Norris can growl out a desperate plea for love one moment, scat swingingly the next, all the time making it look so effortless. It’s like seeing the soaring spire and not thinking how deep the foundations are.” - Tim Baker, Paris Free Voice

He earned his Bachelors degree in Architecture at Yale University (USA) in 1990, and continued his studies in Music at the American School of Modern Music in Paris (FR). Since then he has released two solo CDs and over 20 collaborative works ranging from contemporary opera to Bigband.
