I know I’ve been inconsistent with my posting and for that I apologize! There’s been a lot going on with me in 2021. Not only been working on music, I also had a major surgery a month ago today and I have been recovering. I am really looking forward to completing my upcoming album “40”, which will be released July 15, 2021 on my 40th birthday this year! Thank you to everyone who has supported me in my music the last 12 years, you all mean so much to me and I cannot wait for you to hear this album! I look forward to linking up with my guy Zac Lauer and filming some visuals for you as well!
Yesterday I released my very first R&B album and it is available to stream EVERYWHERE. I was very nervous to release this as there are a lot of people who have always told me that I didn’t have what it takes to make one. However, I am of the mind that people who have never attempted to follow their passions and only have something negative to say, don’t get to tell me what I can and cannot do! Please take 19 minutes and enjoy this vibe I’ve created for your ears.
Washington State Music artist Kev will release something unexpected, his first R&B album titled Soju Sessions. Kev’s musical world can come across as a bottle. In other words, each person’s interpretation will be different, which is what he is going for. So, even though this is his 1st R&B album release, it is again another bottle for folks to drink from. Kev states that Soju Sessions was inspired by a weekend he and his wife had that was full of soju, the colorless distilled alcoholic beverage of Korean origin. “It’s something familiar but you can taste the difference with all of its flavors,” said Kev.
This year I decided that I was going to challenge myself to write/record/release 1 song every 2 weeks this year! I have done just that., I will be adding the final song “Butterflies For Bridget” on 12/18/2020!
For everyone who has something going on they feel they can’t talk about. Something they don’t think anyone will understand. This is for those who have lost loved ones who were taken by their illnesses and are no longer here. This is for the 22 a day who have taken their lives after living in silence with their pain.Please check on your loved ones, a simple “I just want you to know I love you,” can save a life.Thank you to my little brother Devon for being a part of this video. This is dedicated to you and those like you who have lost brothers and sisters. This is dedicated to everyone who feels they don’t have a choice, you do, your loved ones are here for you to talk to.
What’s up y’all 2019 was a year of creating, reflection and growth as an artist. I took on the task of learning how to mix and master my own music, then released that music all year! I will say it’s been quite the journey and I love it. I am also engineering for 2 other talented individuals, Chrissy J and Meagan Pena! I can’t wait to see what they do next!
I hope you’re ready for 2020, I’m releasing 26 singles with year that will be a great amalgamation of music. I am by far the move genre diverse artist you will hear this year. I think the best way to put where I am at right now is described by one of my influences, my guy Q Dot. He said “It’s definitely a different door to go into in the music space right now. He has got the trap door, the conscious door, the quasi R&B door and then there’s the Kev door. It’s got all those elements lol it’s got the trap door handle, the conscious door hinges, the R&B door frame, and the door itself is something else lol. I don’t know how else to describe it man.”
I hope you’re all ready for this journey in 2020! LET’S GO!!
The last 2 years I have been putting out my “ARTMUSIC” Series. Vol.1 was expressive and yielded one of my favorite and many people’s favorite “Truth Finds a Way” feat. YlanaRae. After the success of AMV1 i started to shift gears into producing and making my own beats with AMV2. Once again I had some great feedback from it and couldn’t have been happier. Upon thinking of where I would take this series, I really wanted to start connecting with all types of people. AMV3 : All I Ever Wanted, was put together to start that process. I know there are many people out there who are in love or want to fall in love and can’t express their feelings for their significant other or simply don’t know how to tell the person. I had quite a few people reach out and tell me that I made it easy for them to open up. With the next to Volumes I purposely didn’t promote them, they are more of a thank you to everyone who has listened. AMV4 : 4SZNS was a bit of an experiment in song types. My little brother flat out told me he didn’t like it and it made me happy. I wanted to take not only myself but others out of the comfort zone of what they’re used to hearing from me.
That brings me to September 20, 2019, today I released AMV5 : Thankful. This one is for those who listened to to the whole series and gave their feedback and attention. It’s more me than V4, I promise. I hope you all have enjoyed my ARTMUSIC series.
You’re for sure going to bump the fuck out of AMV6 : LEGENDS OF THE FALL
Here it is! The first summer single from Kev! He’s “Feeling Fine” with the homies SRN and Q Dot. We also have an appearance from DJ Just Jordan. Shot in the SoDo District of Seattle by Zac Laur. Press play and enjoy “Feeling Fine” !
