Ken Oriole started recording bands and local musicians while still in high school and he decided to pursue a career in the field. He enrolled at Full Sail University and graduated with a recording arts degree in 2005.
Ken moved to Atlanta seeking new opportunities and soon landed a gig at Atlanta Pro Audio, a premier studio equipment dealer and consultant in the area. Big name producers and artists were quick to recognize his technical abilities and work ethic. He started working freelance with Andre Benjamin (Outkast), Sonny Emory (Earth, Wind, and Fire) and continued to do projects with local/regional rock acts.
His versatility with different genres and technical knowledge paid off in 2010 when he became a full-time staff engineer for mega-producer Tricky Stewart. With Tricky he engineered sessions for the likes of Beyonce, Katy Perry, Rihanna, Usher, Jessica Simpson, Semi Precious Weapons, and The Pilot Kids. He separately did projects with Aretha Franklin, and Frank Ocean. In 2013, Ken's work with Frank Ocean was nominated for an "Album of the Year" Grammy.
He has more recently expanded into sound for TV/Film productions. As of 2017, Ken has also become more involved in the business side of the industry. He continues to work with major label clients in multiple capacities.
