Former "Head East" lead singer Kurt Hansen was born October 25, 1957 in Waterloo, Iowa. He was a musician from an early age thanks to the gift of a guitar from Keith Jensen at age 8.
Kurt was in several bands in the Midwest and Washington State including Lion and Head East, touring the U.S. and Canada extensively. He recorded his first, and what would be his last, solo album "Distance" with Mission Control Studios in 1996.
Kurt passed away too soon on December 16, 2003 at the age of 46. Kurt's final album features many of his original compositions.
