Music is medicine. Kevin believes that with his whole heart and deep into his soul. Whether it's a song that takes you away for a moment, or a song that brings back memories that make you laugh or cry. Music is healing. It's healing. It's revitalizing; cathartic... everything.

Kevin started writing songs on his parents piano in the basement in his early teens, teaching himself how to play - with some help from Mom and Grandma - before, at 16, he got his first guitar. A pawn shop Gibson SG replica/knock off by some unnamable and unremembered company. It was love at first strum.

From there he took one high school classical guitar course and about 4 weeks worth of private guitar lessons before deciding he could do it himself. A trend that would follow into the present and his need to self-produce/record/engineer/master/release/manage....

"Breakaway" is a story. It's familiar; it's life; it's ironic, abusive, sad and funny all at the same time.
With hints of Rock and touches of Country this is Kevin drawing from his past influences and melding them into his own sound.

"Breakaway" is the first digital single off the soon to be released Games. Kevin's first full length digital download CD.

Enjoy!
