Kevin first picked up the guitar at 16 and joined his first band at 17, and he’s never looked back. “It’s not part of who I am.. it is who I am.” Over the years he’s enjoyed playing bass guitar, both acoustic and electric guitars, and keyboard, but my his focus has been on lyrics and vocal melodies. Songwriting is his number one love followed by singing as a close second.
Kevin says he started song writing as a way to impress a girl and claims there’s “always a girl.” His music is very personal, and he pours out his heart in a song. His first album was all about heartache and loss, and he used his own relationships as the inspiration.
He is currently working on his second album, due for release in fall 2018. The album showcases his songwriting talent while taking listeners on a roller coaster ride of emotions with songs ranging from the edgy strained relationship track “Hollow” to the touching love song “Here To Stay.”
On learning to play music
“I was never really interested in learning all the ins and outs. I just wanted to create something. I think sometimes it takes away the magic. There’s a mystery when you don’t exactly know what you’re doing because you don’t know that it’s wrong.”
