Saturn 5 Records Collaborates with Nashville Producer and Grammy Nominee, Ken Coomer

Saturn 5 Records recently collaborated with Nashville producer Ken Coomer on another joint recording project.  Three-time Grammy nominated Coomer has drummed with Wilco and Uncle Tupelo as well as many other artists such Al Green, Wilco, Steve Earle, Emmylou Harris. As a producer, he has created several gold and platinum recordings, including Mexican rock star Chetes’ recent release “Vaquero”.

Coomer completed production on Mike Killeen’s full-length album “Ghost” in early 2019. Saturn 5’s latest signed artist, Nashville singer-songwriter Kristen Englenz, just completed her debut album with Coomer. It is slated for release in early 2020. Label president Richard J. Lenz and Willie “Chuck” Shivers served as co-executive producers on the album.

Coomer traveled to FAME studios in Muscle Shoals, Alabama where he directed production of Englenz’s song “Pray For Rain”. The track features Englenz’s soul searching melody accompanied by the moving vocals of five-time Grammy winning Blind Boys of Alabama. Coomer relates that “If I had a crystal ball and you said that in ten years, fifteen years, three years, you’ll be at FAME in Muscle Shoals recording with the Blind Boys of Alabama. I would have said that isn’t my crystal ball!”

Besides Coomer, Saturn 5 Records has had the privilege of working with several award winning producers including multiple Grammy winner, Dave Cobb (Jason Isbell, Chris Stapleton, Sturgill Simpson, The Highwomen).
