‘OUTSTANDING’ – BBC RADIO 6 MUSIC
After a lifetime of becoming well-known for his virtuoso guitar skills, Kev turned to singing and songwriting at the age of 30. Before this, he had lacked the confidence to sing due to a stutter. Moving from his hometown of Northampton to Brighton gave him the inspiration to take his new musical path. The drastic change in musical direction was a risk, but he feels it was worthwhile because he knows that he wants to spend his life writing and performing his own music.
After years of hard work, fine-tuning, and carving out a name for himself doing what he loves, Kev was invited to New York to record his debut EP titled All You Need (2015). He performed on tour in the USA and the UK then returned to Brighton to pen the songs that formed his debut album Stories of the Sky (2017). Songs from the album were featured in Guitarist Magazine, Acoustic Magazine, and played on BBC Radio Sussex.
‘BEAUTIFUL & INTELLIGENT’ – FOLK RADIO
His second album, Modern Stories, was released February 28th 2020. Songs from this album have been played on BBC Radio 6 Music, BBC Radio Wales and many more national stations. Both of Kev’s albums were recorded with a Mercury-nominated producer in Brighton, UK and were supported by the Arts Council England.
Kev has toured globally, playing hundreds of shows in the UK, US, Europe and South Korea, including some of the UK’s finest venues. So far, his music has gained over 250,000 streams on Spotify.
