A true byproduct of his environment, Kevin grew up during the peak of his dad’s musical career. He still recalls the countless nights spent watching his dad perform from what was then his favorite seat in the house, “sitting on the floor right behind the drums, mesmerized by his every move”. And the rest as they say was history. It was not long before Kevin would decide to pick up the sticks himself, ultimately catapulting himself into his lifelong career in music.
From what he jokes “is just another page from the age old story of drummer turned guitarist, turned songwriter, turned everything else.” It would prove to be these string of unforeseen musical journeys that would eventually lead Kevin to discovering himself in what would become his most important role in music to date…Producing.
Kevin has assisted many different artists in the writing, arranging, recording, and producing of their material. With experiences in everything from Pop, to Rock, Folk, Hip-Hop, R&B, Country… amongst others, he is equipped to take on even the greatest producing challenges of any style.
It was through his decorated life as a producer that caused Kevin to stumble head first into the wide open world of mixing and mastering. Falling in love with this new found creative potential, Kevin
