Ken Ollis draws from a vast well of musical influences to create music that is earthy, lyrical, and, above all, honest. His debut CD "Confluence" features his expressive style of composing coupled with his deep, and agile, sense of time. Ollis is a drummer and composer from Portland, OR. He has performed extensively throughout the US, Canada, and Europe, and played with a variety of musicians including: Kenny Werner, Ingrid Jensen, Julian Priester, Bud Shank, The Drifters, John Stowell, Darrell Grant, John Gross, Dan Balmer, Chata Addy, Rob Blakeslee, Rich Halley, Glen Moore, and many others. Most recently his projects include work with Dominique Eade, Heather Masse (from The Wailin' Jennys), Pepe and the Bottle Blondes, Paxselin Quartet, Ben Fowler, and several other groups.
