Entering the “Liverpool Acoustic Songwriting Challenge 2014”, which was labelled by the Liverpool Echo as “A battle of Liverpool’s best new songwriters”, he was jointly awarded first place in a vote cast by those in attendance for his song “Devils Ego”.
In 2015, Kev was one of 10 finalists who have secured a place at “Bluebird Café @ Bluecoat Chambers” due to take place in August 2015, songwriters from across the North West were whittled down by a panel of judges featuring legendary “Old Grey Whistle Test” host “Whispering” Bob Harris.
His songs have had repeat broadcasts on “BBC Introducing Merseyside” and he was invited to perform a live session and interview which was broadcast on Dave Monks “BBC Introducing” show, and more recently recorded a TV performance for “Arts Alive” which aired on BAY TV in June 2015.
Songs are short and to the point, with the main focus on trying to give short sharp blasts of emotion whilst getting a tune stuck in your head. His style has been described as ‘country with an edge’ and ‘angry folk’, both of which give a nod of the head to his musical influences which range from Hank Williams to Nirvana.
Prolific, with over one hundred original tunes scattered across the web, he has now provided a single point of collation and contact with this website, where all new tracks and news will be available as they happen.
