About

Ken Ashcorp is a singer/songwriter, who specializes in songs about popular internet tropes in video games, anime and cartoons.

Online History

His first song "I Wish There Were Still Dinosaurs" was uploaded on November 18th, 2010. On the same day, he uploaded his second song "Vuvu Hero," which was based on a game of the same name (shown below, left and right, respectively.)[1]




Since then, Ken has released 29 songs on his YouTube channel,[2] along with 21 singles on his Apple Music[3] and Bandcamp pages.[4] One of his songs "Absolute Territory," which revolves around the Japanese concept of Zettai Ryouiki, is the most popular on his channel with over 9.7 million views. His second most popular song "20% Cooler" is a reference to a quote by Rainbow Dash, and currently has more than 6.3 million views.




On May 25th, 2016, he announced his first live show with Mystery Skulls as the headline act. One month later, he performed in Anime Expo on July 1st, 2016.



Fandom

His channel has a large following online, with currently over 267,000 subscribers,[2] and more than 19,000 likes on his official Facebook page.[5] His fan subreddit, /r/KenAshcorp, has more than 590 readers.[6] His songs have also received many remixes and mashups (examples below).



Kenny

Kenny is an anthropomorphic panda who serves as the channel's mascot. She appears in all of his album art, thumbnails, and Ken's profile pictures. There have been several fan arts of her, with more than 1,100 results in DeviantArt (examples below).[7]



Reputation

Ken keeps most of his peronal life and other details private, as he doesn't share them online. Prior to his main channel, he uploaded songs to his former channel foreverpandering, but was later deleted due to many criticisms of being in the furry fandom. This also caused him to close comments on some of his videos, as well as locking his own accounts.[8] Various songs from this channel were reuploaded on YouTube. Compared to his main channel, his older content was less professional, but more mainstream.

It sounds like that happened some years ago whe the furry hate was much higher than it is now, so it is probably water under the bridge at this point. The most I see of that today is specifically when fursuits are mentioned for whatever reason, which is not often. And sure, the odd YouTube comment here and there, but I do not count those to have any redeemable value for anything in life, so whatever.
