4WARD - 4WARD



4WARD is a heavy metal solo project conceived and brought to life by Ken ‘Krazyfingers’ Parent from Kapuskasing, Ontario Canada. Ken a multi-talented guitarist/instrumentalist, producer and recording engineer who built his name by forging a solid foundation in hard rock with heavy metal influences by crafting his original sound that he displays through several combinations of styles in the past 25 years of his active participation in the music business. Some of his proudest moments come by being invited to play live on stages with the likes of Foreigner and Grand Funk Railroad as an opening act, along with several upcoming Canadian Rock artists. In 2012, he was hired to play on the Western Canada tour for the theatrical heavy metal act THOR. 
It all started at the young age of 6 years old, when his mother encouraged his musical curiosity by purchasing a guitar for him. Since then, the guitar has become his passion instrument of choice, but he has learned to play several instruments along the way. 



In 1996 Ken attended Cambrian College (Cambrian College), where he acquired classical training and structured his skills. While being a rocker at heart, his classical background, mixed with his free spirited shredding technique, allowed him to blend everything from Blues to Metal. He created his own 'Shredtastic' style, which would eventually become recognized. in 2004, in Kelowna, BC, he began hosting the Open Jam Nights at The Greatful Fed. His amazing talent and undeniable skills brought him various gigs here and there, which made him known as the ‘Guitarded Shredder’ on the local music scene. And the ‘Krazyfingers’ name was born. From there, he moved his vision to Vancouver, BC, to pursue his passion with greater exposure. A simple Craig's List advertisement, which he'd posted in search of a vocalist to collaborate on his project, was answered by talented vocalist Tyler Nickerson (previous band name should be added here for Tyler) and 4WARD was officially started. Throughout the years, ‘Krazyfingers’ played in various Canadian venues, collaborated with local, upcoming artists and shared his music with many. With the hopes of finding like-minded future permanent 4WARD band members - they came... and they went, mostly just due to the fact that everyone didn’t always share the same vision. Therefore, they moved onward and Krazyfingers moved 4WARD. It is truly amazing to see ‘Krazyfingers’ keep his 4WARD project, his vision, his dream alive for so long on his own while honing his distinct style and constantly evolving and developing his skills.
