Kevin Campbell’s love of guitar and music started in a sixth grade music class. Unfortunately this love affair ended shortly there after when an incident involving his smart mouth, and an undeserving classmate got him banished to last chair for the rest of the year.
Abandoning music altogether, Kevin navigated the oft taken route of athlete-turned-professional mascot-turned-actor-turned-filmmaker before a chance encounter with a shitty guitar in Montgomery Ward reawakened his love of music.
Though a couch superstar, playing and songwriting came awkwardly for a while. Then when playing his songs in front of an audience for the first time, he realized that this was the scariest thing he’d ever done. Suck in front of people. His friends even. He was hooked.
Kevin’s songs draw from a lifetime of disappointments, regret, relationships both good and bad, bouts of frustration, and some actual real fun moments.
If pressed to describe his sound, Kevin would most likely say, “Back off man! I told you I don’t know!” So let’s just say if Blues, Soul, Motown and Folk did the deed and had a baby… And that baby was given up for adoption, and raised by a sweet lovely deaf couple that always nodded with approval, though they heard nothing… Kevin’s music is that baby.
When not playing shows around LA or occasionally making short videos about monkeys (www.Nacho.com), Kevin can probably be found not doing much. Just the way he likes it.
