Bio

Kevin broke into the Philadelphia music scene in 2000 as the frontman of the funk/jazz fusion band, Pornofunk. After two EP releases, and four years of excessive touring, Kevin left the band to pursue a solo career. With the release of "Tickled Pink" Kevin took on the overwhelming task of breaking out of the mold that he had created with Pornofunk. Since then Kevin has been featured in many of the east coast’s most prestigious venues including, the historic Globe Theatre in Maryland, WXPN’s World Café in Philadelphia, the Stone Pony and his hometown hotspot; Grape Street Pub. His single, “Falling Up” has been featured on both commercial and college radio stations throughtout the U.S. and Central America. In 2006, Kevin was invited to travel to Costa Rica to spread his music and play alongside some of Central America's most respected artists including Panama's pop diva, Rhada K., Costa Rica's Max Goldenberg, international recording legend, Manuel Chamorro, and Solon Sirias who is most notable for his work with Latin pop stars, Ricky Martin & Shakira.

Kevin was born & bred in South Philadelphia where he first discovered hip-hop. Immediately, he was hooked to artists such as Arrested Development and A Tribe Called Quest. It is these pioneers of rap music that Kevin credits for his unique rythemic stylings and his often gritty, street wise lyrics. At 13, Kevin relocated to New Jersey where he picked up the guitar and over the years developed a style that mixed pop with jazz, jazz with funk, and funk with reggae. Under the guidance of some of Philly's best jazz guitarists, Kevin developed and redeveloped many of the original songs and some of the cover songs you hear today.
