Biography

The name Kevin Pride might be new to you, but Kevin Pride is not new to music.
Born on February 14th 1978 and raised in Pittsburg California, Kevin has been writing and performing music for over 20 years. In his sophomore album “King of Hearts” he is living up to that name and winning the hearts of loyal followers. Working with Bay Area producers Jeremy Wells and Maurice Njissang to develop and record the project, “King of Hearts” is 8 tracks of simply good music. The recipe for this feel good album is Soul, R&B, hip hop a little funk, some rock, a pinch of house and a dash of electronica. Musician Jay Whitlatch played guitar and bass adding his skill and talent to the project . Kevin’s 1st album “Music for the Soul”, was militant, intellectual and a perspective of the mind and soul. This album is love music, a perspective of the heart and emotion. The greatest thing about the album is that it makes you want to not only dance, but listen to the lyrics as well. Kevin is capturing the hearts of everyone.
There is deeper symbolism behind the “King of Hearts” title for Kevin.
“I didn’t just choose it for the obvious reason. It is more than just the love theme. I was born on Valentine’s day which is the day of emotional and conceptual love. The music is definitely geared at making the connection of the hearts with listeners. It is also a representation of me following my heart and my calling and thus becoming the King of my own heart. The King of Hearts in the Tarot can represent a person who has symbolically died and is reborn and has triumphed over hardship and adversity. I feel like this project is a testament to the challenges I have overcome and the person I have come to be."
The great thing about this album is that any one from any walk of life can listen to it. It carries a depth and quality that transcends generations. Teenagers and grandmothers alike could appreciate it. The album “King of Hearts” is a testament to hard work and keeping the flame of passion alive, even when it seems that all is lost. What is in the future for Kevin Pride? Kevin is performing regularly and promoting his album. Kevin’s next goal is to focus on working with industry professionals as a songwriter and have other performers perform his music. Kevin will continue to make original music and is already in the studio working on a follow up to the “King of Hearts”.
Seizing the moment and finding the will to succeed, Kevin Pride has come into his own and taken his throne as the “King of Hearts”. Won’t you be a loyal subject?

Lyrics

Live Right

Written By: Kevin Pride

Its a cold world
sometimes a cold life
you know you can be wrong
and at the same time be right
its all a game you see
practice if you wanna be tight
its all the same it seems
my life aint different from your life

(Chorus)
How you gonna live right
if you dont wanna give right
how you gonna see right
if you dont wanna be right

Its your world girl
Man its your own life
they tell you how you have to be strong
you wont win witout a good fight
youll find your place in things
make a difference in your own right
see all that love can bring
let it heal and clear your sight

(Chorus)
How you gonna live right
if you dont wanna give right
how you gonna see right
if you dont wanna be right

Things they come up and they might block your flow
but you never know where the waters will go
we all are some actors that make up this show
don't be fake to each other and maybe well grow
people act funny and they start to trip
bumping their gumbs running off at the lips
make the most of the food that you have on your plate
quit doubting yourself and just trust in your fate

(Chorus)
How you gonna live right
if you dont wanna give right
how you gonna see right
if you dont wanna be right

I Cant Wait

Written By: Kevin Pride

Its not enough,
just to hear your name,
and girl Id run just to see your face,
we can go to dinner (if your hungry),
then back to my place (pop some bubly)
just thought you should know girl,

(Bridge)
If you wanna play
then you can stay
Ill bet Ill do the things
that will make you say
I cant wait

(Chorus)
Oooh this love cant get any better
come on baby get a little nearer
open your eyes so you can see clear that
I cant wait
You and me we make a good mixture

cmon baby let me get witcha
I cant wait...

Lets have some fun

you make the rules
and Ill play your way
but dont be selfish
I dont like that game (thats not fair baby)
I play to win girl
and I cant wait

(Bridge)
If you wanna play
then you can stay
Ill bet Ill do the things
that will make you say
I cant wait

(Chorus)
Oooh this love cant get any better
come on baby get a little nearer
open your eyes so you can see clear that
I cant wait
You and me we make a good mixture
me and you we paint a perfect picture
cmon baby let me get witcha
I cant wait...

DJ

Written By: Kevin Pride

When I hear music it takes control of me
relax my mind, soothes my soul and sets me free
when I hear music I feel it in my bones
I start to move I get my groove Im in my zone
I want the DJ to play the funky jam
so I can do it, two drinks up in my hand
I came to party and love is in the air
Hey DJ Im almost there

Chorus
Music is a motivator
a rythym elevator
bumpin out the speakers playin
Im dancin kinda faded
Hey DJ
Can we get the party started
lets get it started

When I hear music it makes me want to move

I came to party and thats what imma do
Hey DJ the partys all on you

Chorus
Music is a motivator
a rhythm elevator
bumpin out the speakers playin
Im dancin kinda faded
Hey DJ
