Biography

Kevin's most recent CD is called "BRICK". What most people will not realize is that this is actually the 5th collection of songs he has recorded.
After many years as a live audio engineer, Kevin decided to experiment with a small home studio in 2001.

In 2002 Kevin released, "The Fuse" and "As Summer Returns" Both of these albums were in MP3 format and came out within 6 months of each other. " I did the best that I could with these albums, considering I only had access to 8 tracks.
I originally had them up on the old MP3.com and
scored quite a number of plays."

With the release of "Messages" in November 2003, Kevin planned to tour, but was already involved with another side project. " With whatever free time I had at that point, I knew I could still put
together another album. It was just going to take a little longer. I really wanted to get out and play
live again, but I had prior commitments."

So from December of 2003 through November of 2004, Kevin worked on "Out There". "I had a 16 track recorder that I just kept filling up with songs.
Before I knew it, I had finished another album in
my spare time."

Kevin's First CD,"Out There", is available on most
of the major music distribution websites.

In his solo performances, Kevin plays Acoustic and Electric Guitars and is accompanied by an Imac with backing tracks.

Run For The Middle

Written By: Kevin Campbell

Run For The Middle

Hey
Another Day
For us to play
I'm nowhere
Stuck in the middle again
Oh my friend, this ain't the end
You know I...got up at quarter to 2

Feel the strain I can't refrain
I'm nowhere
Caught in the riddle again
Oh my friend you know
We just got to be there
Got nothing better to do

Better days may never seem as
Bright as now
Oh maybe we should take on more of the same
Better days may never seem as
Bright as now
Oh maybe we should take on more of the
Blame.....

Oh I'm Running for The Middle
And I won't back it down
Till I get my arms round you
Oh you know I'm getting closer
Cause I'm already scared
Wondering what I'm gonna do

Run For the middle
And I won't back it down
Till I get my arms around you
Know I'm getting closer
Cause I'm already scared
I 'm running for the middle
I keep running for the middle
To Find You

Rushed, Crushed Again
I feel the sin
It's crawling..
It's crawling under my skin
Oh my friend this ain't the end
You know I
Got up at quarter to 2

Feel the strain I can't refrain
I'm nowhere!
Down In The Gutter again
Oh my friend
you know
We just got to be there
Got nothing left now to lose

Better days may never seem as
Bright as now
Oh maybe we can take on more of the same
Better days may never seem as
Bright as now
Oh maybe we should take on more of the
Blame.....

Oh I'm Running for The Middle
And I won't back it down
Till I get my arms round you
Know I'm getting closer
Cause I'm already scared
Wondering what I'm gonna do

Run For the middle
And I won't back it down
Till I get my arms around you
Know I'm getting closer
Cause I'm already scared
I'm running for the middle
I keep running for the middle
To Find You

Thinking all was past just the other day
A million passing glances....
Along the walk......
You read ...I'll talk.....

All the little secrets
Surround me now
they seem to have their way
Kneel down...... but don't pray

Surround........
Surround........

And even through the garden
They slip and crawl
they never fall so vain
You try and ease the strain

And even though the pressure
Keeps mounting now
they'll never freeze the frame
Feel now...........don't stray

Surround................
Surround.................

Well I surround.....
Every little secret
With more than I could ever know, and how
I surround............
All that beats inside
With more than I could ever know ...ever know right now.........

And even though the pressure
Keeps mounting now
they'll never freeze the frame
The cry of shame

Surround....................................
