Bio

Kevin Leeds cut his teeth on the blues--the Mississippi Delta blues, that is--the kind of music where you sit on the porch with a bottle of bourbon and play 'till you pass out. Not content to waste away in an alcoholic stupor, however, Leeds dug up the roots of the blues and soon found himself drawn to the music of West Africa...and Cuba...and then...everywhere. After years studying the traditions of these indigenous styles, and mining the gems that make them so real, so visceral and life-affirming, Leeds infused them into the music he was raised on...old-school rock and roll, 60's and 70's folk and good ole' funk and soul. He worked all those pieces into a seamless whole--crafting popularly styled songs replete with hooks and bridges, but also flavored with traditional melodies and instrumentation. His lyrics are poetic and thought-provoking, and have a marked tendency to rattle around in the brain for days. His stage presence is ever-engaging, welcoming and soul-stirring, and his performances unforgettable.
