“Tizzard is a born storyteller… a little Townes Van Zandt can be heard as he performs a descriptive and hugely impressive folk blues number that speaks of how the devil lives in St Johns Newfoundland… his vocal style has more to do with John Hartford than anyone other than himself for presentation, warmed with a hint or two of James McMurtry.” - Maurice Hope - Americana UK

“His new album No Dark No Light is his strongest work yet.  The sparse instrumentation is acoustic-based, allowing Tizzard’s evocative and deeply soul-searching songs to shine.” - Kerry Doole - New Canadian Music

“…gentle giant is a musician with a gift for storytelling that is unrivalled. His voice can be soft and warm like a summer rain, or rough and tumble like a much-travelled gravel road. He is a modern troubadour, a young Canadian whose sound would do Bob Dylan and Pete Seeger proud.” - Al Beeber - Lethbridge Herald
“Ken Tizzard continues to impress as a multi-talented artist” - Rolly Ethier - The Sheild
“…the type of stuff you'd hear in a (pre-bylaw) smoky bar, with a harsh, heavy domestic beer in your hand, listening to a crooner sing his heart out for truck drivers and seasoned cougars.” - Bill Alexander - Soundproof




Ken Tizzard With Bad Intent - "The Goodness Of Bad Intent" 

Recorded by John Whynot at The Woodshed studio...






“Lost in Awe” is a collection of 15 songs inspired by real people and events from Ken Tizzard’s Life. Conceived and written while on a summer tour in 2007 Ken found himself newly motivated by the awesome nature of the Rocky Mountains of Alberta and Montana.






Recorded on a hung over New Years day, "Live at the Acoustic Grill" captures the live antics that make up the Variety Show Players. Featuring songs by Ken Tizzard, Dave Mowat and Ken Layton.





"Between The Lines" was written and recorded with Ken Layton and Dave Mowat - "Modern Old Style Country Rock."







"Quiet Storey introduction." is Ken Tizzard's first solo CD. With Ken's primary passion being the bass guitar it took him some time to discover the unique sonic textures that he would use to create music using the bass as a primary accompaniment.



"Mud On My Boots" recorded for Frank Meyers and the Save Franks Farm campaign...
