Biography

Kevin Reeves’s musical journey has been an amalgamation of many styles, each day bringing new forms of artistic expression. As the son of a young member of the U.S. Coast Guard, his family moved numerous times allowing Kevin to experience different cultural communities. From the down-home country music of Alabama, to the many forms of Hip hop originating in California, Kevin assimilated these musical styles and incorporated them into his arsenal of musical ideas.

Born on December 22, 1977 in Frankfort Michigan he was diagnosed with Optic Nerve Atrophy, a condition, which caused him to be totally blind. This visual impairment did not negatively affect his young life. Kevin’s early childhood was met with total inclusion into the sighted world around him and daily filled with the music of Billy Joel, Earth, Wind, and Fire, Grover Washington Jr. and the Electric Light Orchestra.

At age 3, he moved to Mobile, Alabama where he heard the music of Charlie Daniels, Lynard Skynard and Alabama. Combined with the rock of 38 Special, Billy Joel and others, Kevin began to understand and differentiate the many musical styles that existed, adding each one to his lexicon.

Elementary school brought Kevin back to northern Michigan where he not only furthered his exploration of the idioms of rock music, but also began to gain an interest in the sound of electronic instruments such as synthesizers, keyboards and drum machines. In 1985, at age eight, he received a small toy keyboard that propelled his interest to new heights.

    If you like well-crafted and cleanly-recorded melodic vocal pop with rock drums and sizzling electric guitar, you'll like Kevin Reeves. Lots of vocal harmonies and keyboards, too. Familiar yet fresh. I was hooked the minute I heard Shine.
