About KEVIN

Piano virtuoso & composer Kevin B. is a musician on a mission: to create music that invokes the best of the golden age of 70’s R&B spirituality and harmonic grace, combined with contemporary beat science and his own artistic vision and influences.

A master student of intensive private studies with legendary jazz icons Walter Bishop Jr. & Jaki Byard, he has wedded those seminal experiences to his classical training under Oland Gaston & his life long interest in popular music forms to forge a unique approach to Inspirational music. Kevin B's music has the sophisticated intricacy and timeless melodies of prime Stevie Wonder, Isley Brothers, Earth Wind & Fire, and a heart-felt message that comes through in the lyrics of his collaborator Derek Gibbs.

Kevin began his performing career when he appeared at the United Nations at the age of 12 and he has gone on to present his music at Birdland, Cami Hall, The Brooklyn Museum, The Museum of Natural History. The Guggenheim Museum, Abyssinian Baptist Church, as well as many other significant churches all over the U.S.
