Bridging the gap between folk, pop and rock, singer/songwriter Kevin Wood has created a musical genre all of his own. Collaborating the sounds of such influential artists as the Indigo Girls, Paula Cole, Billy Joel and Elton John, Kevin adds to the mix a twist of R&B, and just a dab of musical theatre. Always accompanying himself on the piano, Kevin proves to make each performance a refreshing and uplifting experience. His songwriting has been described as "emotionally profound and musically potent," and in 2000 this hallmark style of Kevin's was recognized nationally when he received honorable mention in the John Lennon Songwriting Contest for his song, Drive. "What we really need right now is a road trip...," says Kevin with a genuine smile, and his words come from personal experience. A small-town Wyoming native, Kevin first ventured off to college for musical theatre in Colorado, but soon realized he had put his main love of songwriting aside. Soon he was off to the school of his dreams-- Berklee College of Music, in Boston--to put his songwriting in the forefront of his studies. At Berklee he established himself as both a seasoned songwriter and a confident, natural performer. He dazzled audiences in numerous showcases, received awards from both the vocal and songwriting departments, and by his graduation in 2001, had performed as a lead vocalist in an honorary concert for the present Walter Becker and Donald Fagen of Steely Dan. Since his graduation, Kevin has been planning for his upcoming album Haven't Had Enough, due to be released by this summer. He will be going back to Boston to make the CD, after presently taking a small and refreshing hiatus back in his Yellowstone-country hometown. Renewed and refreshed, Kevin is ready to make his small-town-boy dreams of stardom come true. Make sure to be attentively listening for Kevin's voice to be heard on the radio, for this boy is soon going to put Wyoming on the map!!
