Comments and Opinions
Seattle Weekly, Roberta Cruger
With a voice and lyrics to match the sweet strains of his guitar, Kevin could be Seattle's version of Jackson Browne**.
**From Seattle Weekly, reviewing Kev’s CD “Hester St.”

Paul Speer (Multi-Award Winning Producer-Rainstorm Studios)
"I have worked with and known Kevin for several years. In addition to recording many of his albums at my studio, I have had the pleasure of including him as a session singer on numerous other projects. Kevin's talent and professionalism makes him a joy to work with and he always delivers the goods. I highly recommend him both as a singer and as a musician.”

Every song, every line, means something and he expresses them all with great emotion and a pure voice."
