Kevin Case was born and raised in Seattle, WA and music was always his passion (when he wasn't skateboarding). He began writing music on his church piano at the age of 7, mostly so he wouldn't have to sit through the sermons. He began writing songs and singing, playing almost every instrument he would pick up by ear to try and replicate the sounds constantly streaming through his head. In his teens, he played guitar and performed vocals with garage rock favorites "The Eagertones" during the explosion of the Seattle club scene in the late 80's. The Eagertones recordings received nationwide airplay on college radio stations with the band touring cross country in support of the buzz. Kevin couldn't believe he was opening for The Ramones, The Romantics, The Del Lords, The Godfathers and some of his other musical heroes.
The group disbanded in 1997 after an amazing run, but Kevin had formed a tight musical bond with Eagertones guitarist Phil Georgas and they decided to continue on together. Kevin and Phil played and recorded in a few side projects through 1999 (Georgas Case and Money) until Kevin moved to the San Franciso Bay Area.
After disappearing for a few years Kevin re-emerged with a self-produced and performed CD in 2005. "For future reference" was a labor of love, written, recorded and engineered in Kevin's "spare time", usually at 3:00 in the morning when the house was otherwise dark and quiet. It is available for purchase through a number of sources and includes fan-favorites "January Rain" and "Starving for Sugar".
Kevin is currently working on his next solo release, slated to hit eardrums in early 2010. Fans can look forward to Kevin's deeply personal, sometimes playful lyrics combined with a few piano-driven songs, a bit of a retro, jazzy feel and with the purchase of some new engineering software and a few more guitars, it promises to give his earlier works a run for their money.
