Expressionist Post Modern Americana
Kenny Schick's 5th solo studio Cd - 'SHUFFLE' is Americana with colors of rock, punk and jazz, influences from a multi-genre past. Songs of longing, loss, hope - about love and politics and always thought provoking in his intense and deliberate lyric writing. Schick has a loyal following, and for good reason - his has very entertaining live shows, there is passion, laughter, tears, craftsmanship, and thought provoking lyricism. The shows take listeners on a journey with much interplay between him and the audience. Kenny is a generous performer and uses his quick comedic sense to balance the intensity of the songs, which often explore the darker realms of human experience.
He has played rock, jazz, punk, world music, and classical on instruments ranging from screaming electric guitar and energetic saxophone to subdued flute. Once he decided to go solo, he spent a year trying to figure out how to strip down his densely layered music to just an acoustic guitar and vocals. Kenny is an accessible guy and he represents a dream - the guy who found his calling at 13 and has been refining his craft ever since with undying passion.
Schick's love of music extends also into the recording and production of music too. In 2008 he started Basement3Productions a recording company - he produces, records and orchestrates other singer songwriters with as much passion as he puts into his own music.
Schick also still plays in numerous local and international bands both on saxophone and guitar, and has a duo with his wife called ArtemesiaBlack.

THE MUSE'S MUSE - CD REVIEW By Cyrus Rhodes
... Shuffle by Kenny Schick is a highly original, diversified and compelling musical production from start to finish. It’s strong suit – its amazing artistic presence, brilliance, vision from Schick. This guy is a musical mastermind with more than enough zaniness, creativity and eccentricity to go around. For the record: Schick wrote, recorded, preformed, produced played electric, acoustic guitars, saxophone, basses, violin, Washing Machine, percussion, banjo on this CD. The songs are extremely melodic, grooving, and somewhat eccentric – but above all infectious. The songs are short and sweet musical experiences, each one possessing a unique personality, flair, and signature groove. Total SCORE 10/10 for all aspects. READ FULL REVIEW
