Bio

Kevin Seconds has been the lead singer and principal songwriter of legendary American hardcore punk band 7Seconds for nearly 4 decades now. 

“I started in 7Seconds when I was 18, full of anger, energy and drive by utter boredom. I’m 57 now, I am still angry and I still have lots of energy but I’m never bored. Ever”.

Kevin Seconds has been the lead singer and principal songwriter of legendary American hardcore punk band 7Seconds for nearly 4 decades now. 

“I started in 7Seconds when I was 18, full of anger, energy and drive by utter boredom. I’m 57 now, I am still angry and I still have lots of energy but I’m never bored. Ever”.

In about half of that time, he has also recorded and toured as a solo artist, captivating crowd around the world with his passionate, soulful and intimate performances.

To date, Kevin has released 6 albums internationally and has played and toured with the likes of Rancid, Elliott Smith, Dropkick Murphys, Bob Mould, Steve Soto (Adolescents), Exene Cervenka (X), Chuck Ragan (Hot Water Music), Tim Barry (Avail), Johnny Two Bags (Social Distortion) and bands as diverse as Lucero, Bad Brains and Andrew Jackson Jihad.

“It’s always an honor to play with people whose bands I’ve loved and have been inspired by but considering that so many of these people are some of the best singer-songwriters on the planet, I consider myself luckier than most to have gotten a chance to play with them”.

Kevin has been called 'a pop troubadour with a protest singer's heart' and his new songs are startlingly catchy and impeccably well-crafted.

“My favorite was some writer years back referring to me as ‘a Dunkin Donuts Dylan’. I’ll take that one".

His 2014 album, 'Off Stockton' featured 11 original songs, showcasing to an even greater extent, his unique brand of rootsy, melodic and heartfelt folk music.

Kevin quickly followed up ‘Off Stockton’ with the release of ’New Years Rulin’s’, his song interpretation of Woody Guthrie’s 33 new years resolutions for the year 1943, a project very near and dear to his heart.

“I’m always moved by everything Woody Guthrie….his voice, his songs, his activism and courage. For years I’ve wanted to do something personal with those sweet little new years resolutions of his. I finally figured out how I could and I’m really psyched and proud of this new record”.

At the beginning of 2016, Kevin started his 'Song Forge' song club project, an exclusive, subscription-based club (via Patreon) where he writes and shares brand new music with subscribers every month.

Later that year and with the financial help of his Song Forge subscribers, Kevin released, 'Band-Aid On A Bullet Wound' on his own Birthday Money label, featuring 10 songs of acoustic songs, as well as some loud, abrasive rocking ones.

One of the hardest working performers in the underground music community today, 2018 looks to be a busy year for Kevin as he prepares for the release of a new solo album, as well as collaborative albums with his wife Allyson Seconds and his new punk band project Unsteady Heights and all sorts of touring.
