Musician

Kingsley Durant

You could say that music is in Kingsley Durant’s blood. He is the oldest of five brothers, and four of them play music. In fact, his entire family on his mother’s side is musical. Durant hails from a clan that boasts violinists, pianists, classical singers, organists, horn players, and guitarists in its ranks. 

Durant demonstrated both an aptitude and an appetite for music when he was young. He began playing when he was eight years old, learning piano, trumpet, and French horn as well as guitar. He performed in concert bands and choirs and studied music theory and composition in high school and college. The classical musicians in his family were important influences in his musical development, as was his uncle, Peter Gammons. He shared with Durant his comprehensive mid-1960s record collection, which included artists like Chuck Berry, The Rolling Stones, The Who, and the Yardbirds. This led to a fascination with the sound and feel of guitars and rock and roll music that has never abated.
