Full Bio

Kevin is an award-winning creator, entrepreneur, songwriter, composer, lyricist, producer, director, speaker, artist advisor and creative consultant. 

As a composer Kevin has scored more than 45 feature films, including two Academy Award® nominated documentaries, and is the recipient of two 21st Century Filmmaker Awards for Excellence. He has also created, recorded and produced an extensive catalog of songs, including the title tracks for 12 feature films, as well as the book, music and lyrics for 15 stage musicals.

His command and range of creative and musical styles is as extensive and diverse as the many places he’s lived around the world. A study in contrasts, Kevin is a classically trained composer, and a product of London’s punk rock scene, as comfortable in front of a stack of Marshall amps as he is conducting a symphony orchestra. 

An entrepreneur who embraces challenges, Kevin expanded his creative musical work to fill an entertainment gap being experienced by the new generation of music lovers.

This new generation of music fans wants to experience entertainment differently than any audiences before them. They want authenticity, as well as something that they can feel involved with, immersed in, and that they can share with others, both in person and online. 

 However, with all of this demand, there were only a handful of entertainment options available to them.

Seeing this need, Kevin became the founder and creative force behind a production company dedicated to creating disruptive new immersive and interactive multimedia music entertainment for audiences demanding radically unique experiences. 

Like Cirque, Frank Zappa, Meow Wolf, The Flaming Lips, Absinthe and Devil Dolls, Kevin creates innovative and inspiring multimedia music events, each sprinkled with a healthy dash of anarchy that wraps the audience in a thrillingly original immersive and interactive musical experience. Part Film Score, part Concert, part Theatre and part Symphonic Rock Opera, Kevin pushes all the creative boundaries while never losing sight of the rock roots driving each event.

Kevin has conceived, written and produced all of the company’s award-winning events, building his unique brands of entertainment into commercially successful franchises.

With productions that have toured extensively throughout the US, Canada, Mexico and Europe, his work has been heavily featured in the media, including his own PBS Television Special and other dedicated programs. To date, his productions have performed in over 300 shows, six countries to over one million fans.

Based in New York, Kevin’s contributions include the award-winning Vox Lumiere series, Graphic Novels Live, @ The Drive-in, Liquid Ranch Media and soundtracks for Academy Award Nominated documentaries.

Kevin is a proud member of ASCAP, BMI, HFA-Harry Fox Agency, NARIP, Society of Composers & Lyricists, National Academy of Recording Arts and Sciences (Voting Grammy Member), American Federation of Musicians, American Music Center, NAMM, Meet The Composer, and The Film Music Network.

Kevin is an obsessive world traveler, a not-so-secret SciFi geek, a comic book lover and a really terrible cook (who unfortunately loves to eat). Born in Lexington, KY, his family moved about every two years (not the Army, his Dad was an insurance executive), and he went to three high schools (two in Europe). He lives in Manhattan with his wife and they go to the Central Park dog walk most everyday to try and figure out what kind of dog they might want.
