About Arena-Heroes

The Arena Heroes project was started in 2013 by Ken Mertz to capture the excitement and energy of a live sports event through music. With the project Ken is on a mission to create a stadium classic that gets played in professional sports arenas. While primarily a guitarist, he also uses a keyboard, computer and samples of his own voice (and others) to create the arena feel. In addition to making music, Ken is also a visual artist who creates the album artwork and music video aesthetics.
