Biography

Kevan's journey as a musician began in the 1970s when, at the age of six, he was kicked out of recorder classes for holding the rest of the class up.

After spending the early 1980s playing with home computers, he was given an electric guitar as a Christmas present in 1987, and while he has still not learned to play it properly over twenty years later, it was this event that first awakened his interest in writing and recording music. Within a year he was layering lo-fi guitar and vocal sounds in his bedroom using a walkman and a complex arrangement of cables. These early recordings veered lyrically between the ramblings of a simpleton and pretentious literary references, and musically aimed for a bluesy rock sound but were undermined by musical incompetence.

The availability of audio freeware and shareware in the late 1990s allowed Kevan to combine his two loves of music and computing, and by 2004 Kevan was digging out those lo-fi cassette tape recordings that he had made fifteen years earlier and was reinventing them in a bleepy electronic style using the processing power of a modern home computer.

In recent years a career in IT has taken precedence over home recordings, but in 2009 Kevan is studying an Open University course titled The Technology of Music, his first musical education since those fateful recorder classes over thirty years ago. Expect this to prompt a renewed interest in recording music.

The songs that you can hear on last.fm date were recorded from the mid 1990s onwards.
