Carolyn Shaw and Ken Kingsbury met in late 2000 while singing at a performance workshop. They quickly connected vocally and Carolyn soon joined the newly formed Acoustic Son. Along with Mark Jacobson, Al Bedrosian and Nathan Taylor, they began writing songs together and performing around the Bay Area, drawing audiences with their lush harmonies and driving guitar rhythms. Their first CD debuted in 2002 and was followed in 2004 by their acclaimed CD “Time in the Middle” produced by Bonnie Hayes. Rick English joined the band as their lead guitarist in 2004 and has brought a rock infused flavor to their original music. In 2007 Ken and Rick started their project Kingsbury English putting out a CD of rock originals. Now working again with Bonnie Hayes Carolyn Shaw and Ken Kingsbury have released their 3rd CD - Cross the Line - teaming up with Rick English, Mark Jacobson and many of the Bay Area’s top musicians to bring their best work yet. The music is strong and the melodies catchy as they weave through relationship, spirituality, and the strong connection to each other they have in their music. Acoustic Rock, with alt-country pop is what folks describe as their style and brand. Take a listen and hear for yourself!

Acoustic Son Cross The Line Review
author: Greg Nergenah
I have their first two CD's which are excellent, so I couldn't wait to hear this new release. I was not disappointed. Acoustic Son continues to write beautiful songs with great lyrics. The harmonies are done so well, and they have their own signature sound that makes them unique. Their voices blend together so well on wonderfully written music. I think either Ken, or Carolyn would make great individual artists, but this groups strong point is how well these two singers blend together into one. The guitar work is outstanding as well as all instruments. It's nice to buy a CD where all the songs are exceptional and not just a couple songs like you find on some other CD's. If you love well written music with great harmonies, then do yourself a favor and buy this CD. You will not be disappointed. I envy the folks that live in the bay area that are fortunate to hear this group in concert on a regular basis. Acoustic Son is just another example of the great groups that are from the bay area, and with three great CD's they can join that legendary list. Tell your friends about this great CD.

"CROSS THE LINE" Acoustic Son -
When a group that I like as much as I like Acoustic Son is about to release a new CD, there’s always a guarded anticipation with me. On one hand, I can’t wait for more of the good music that I know and love, and on the other, I’m hoping the group hasn’t gone off on some experimental new direction. With “Cross the Line,” Acoustic Son doesn’t disappoint on both counts. It’s a matured, more polished version of the Acoustic Son of “Time In the Middle.”
There’s a broader palette of instrumentation on this album, as well as Ken and Carolyn’s always insightful, thought-provoking lyrics, and maybe most of all, their awesome vocals. This album boasts more matured and richer vocals individually, but what gets it for me is the way that they blend together. Few duos/groups in history have that magical blend – Crosby, Stills, Nash, and Young, the Eagles, et al. When they sing together, it’s like a chord playing on some celestial instrument is making that sound – not individuals singing together, more like notes in harmony coming from the same source. “Back From the Edge,” my personal favorite, is a great example of this. Although, “Better Days” recaptures that signature Acoustic Son sound a la “Time in the Middle,” and would be my pick as the album’s single.
If you’ve never experienced Acoustic Son’s music, do yourself a favor and check it out. And if you’re a longtime fan, you won’t be disappointed!

Reviewer: Bassist and Composer Edo Castro
I first heard Acoustic Son at a gig. I was in awe. What had been missing from the SF Bay Area music scene for the last 25 years had unfolded before me: A band with strong lead and backing vocals, hip arrangements and lyrics that stir the senses. Wow. In an age of Ashlee Simpson, Brittany Spears, the Back Street Boys and InSync Acoustic Son is the precious relief from the hype of Plastic Surgery Pop music. Their 2nd CD "Time in the Middle" is a collection of precious insights to the soul, the everyday quandaryies of life and the precarious nature of love. You have to have this in your collection.

“Acoustic Son’s self-released demo is an album of cooing ballads... An element of Wet Wet Wet and the Blow Monkeys infects the melodic tones….
Acoustic Son seems ripe for the VH-1 Storyteller’s set.”
