Over the years, I have had the pleasure of working with some of the most talented artists; walking the road I share with each of them; passing the same advice given to me early on…’passion, faith and persistence…’. It shows in the music and connects with everyone that sees and hears you. It’s why music finds it’s way into everyone’s life.
“I know when an artist begins to work with me, it’s my job to push them toward greatness, …to get something out of them they didn’t know was there.”… “What’s most amazing to me is that all our artists have formed a family together; we encourage and lend talent for each others success. Never a job and always a surprising joy.”
This philosophy has shaped the way Kevin has approached everything in his more than three decades as a music producer, composer, arranger, and recording artist. To get a taste of how that benefits you, see how it’s working for some of his clients in Featured Artists.
So why am I here? For you. If you’re ready to shape your sound, sharpen your business, take your music serious and “Rise Above the Noise”….I’m ready to listen.
