      What was your favorite part of the performance? It was great to finally hear your music. The great part was your ability to interact with your audience. FYI, I'm Kevin. Your Mom's first cousin. My Dad is Carl, your Mom's uncle.

Unlike most songwriters trying to make it in Music City, I was actually born in Nashville, TN. And as pretty much all musicians would say in cliché fashion, my journey began early on. I grew up in a musical family although music was not my family’s profession. My dad was and still is a preacher. My mom was and still is an elementary school teacher. They both played the piano growing up and through college, so naturally they encouraged me to take up the instrument. I was seven when I began playing, but always hated practicing! Nonetheless, I kept with it for several years learning a great deal of music theory from my teacher, Mrs. Elaine Bogard. Now fast-forward to age thirteen. I picked up the guitar for the first time at summer camp. I fell in love with the instrument and with practicing. The years of piano really helped me transition to learning how to play the guitar pretty quickly. As a teenager, I began to take a great deal of interest in songwriting. Now, I grew up listening to a huge collection of vinyl records with my dad.. The Beatles, The Beach Boys, Chicago, Emerson Lake And Palmer, James Taylor, Johnny Winter and Michael Hedges (to give you an idea), and those influences have definitely shaped me as a writer and musician.

I've most recently released my album "Out Of The Mud" which I was given the opportunity to promote with a performance on NBC's The Today Show with Hoda and Kathie Lee just on August 8th. That record along with my previous album, Craft, are both available on iTunes.
