Biography

Kevin Kinsella, founder, leader and primary songwriter of internationally renowned Roots Reggae act John Brown's Body has recently taken a hiatus from JBB to pursue a solo career. Kevin's songwriting has earned him fans worldwide, combining his own worldy wisdom with roots reggae and many other sensibilities while embracing the spiritual aspect of the human condition.

Kevin Kinsella and his new band are performing many classic JBB songs, as well as a new crop of material not yet released. Plans for 2007 include a tour of California, tours of the Northeast and MidAtlantic, select national festival dates, recording the first release from this new group, as well as more extensive touring both stateside and abroad.

Whether performing with nothing but his own voice and an acoustic guitar or leading a full band, Kevin's proclaimed musical goal is creating what he calls "thanks and praise" music that will instill positive vibes in all who listen.

Kevin has released two solo albums to date: I-TOWN REVIVAL and FIRESTICK (with Ti Ti Chickapea), with a third one currently in the works. Both solo albums do an amazing justice to Kevin's musically altruistic goal of disseminating positivity and joy. I-TOWN REVIVAL features songs of hope, love and redemption led by Kevin's vocal and acoustic guitar. On FIRESTICK, which captures the vibe of a live recording, Kevin is joined by world renowned cellist Hank Roberts, Eric Aceto and Richie Stearns of Ti Ti Chickapea.

In 2006, Kevin found himself in the role of producer, working on the first full-length recording SWEET END from the female harmony trio, Five2. Recruiting some of the best musicians Ithaca has to offer, Kevin realized a new mission of helping to shape another group's sound - and with moving results.

Not only does Kevin tirelessly promote his message through his many musical projects, he is also one of the founders of I-Town Records, the Ithaca-based cooperative record label that consistently produces some of the most wonderful artists that Central New York has to offer.
