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!!
