Just who is KevOz, you might ask? First off – I’m a husband, a dad to a rescue dog, and a world traveler. Oh – and, I make music! I'm an independent artist who creates instrumental music ranging from softer, relaxing New Age (think: Vangelis, Yanni) to more upbeat Electronic (think, again: Tangerine Dream, Mannheim Steamroller). I like to call it innovative instrumental music that is beyond genres. I've always had a deep love of music in all forms, but got hooked on creating my own tunes with synthesizers due to the awesome variety of sounds that they allow one to create. I've been doing this for over 30 years now - but it wasn't until the turn of the millennium when I decided to get my music "out here" for all of you to hear.
What started out as a hobby in those early years has become a passion. And nowadays, my music has been purchased, downloaded, and/or streamed from all corners of the globe. It still never ceases to inspire me when someone new downloads just one of my songs. I'm thankful for it every day.
Apparently, there are others who have taken notice, too. During my musical journey, I've somehow managed to be profiled in Keyboard Magazine as their "Unsigned Artist of the Month". iTunes actually placed me in their "iTunes Essentials: Yoga" compilation. And, most recently, Tokyo Disneyland® has been featuring my Christmas music over the past several holiday seasons in Tomorrowland - and in a nighttime laser light show beamed onto Space Mountain. Pretty cool, huh? I think so. :)
I reside just outside of Chicago...enjoying life, love, and music. I’m currently working on album #14 (yes, I still call them albums sometimes!) – to be released mid-2016. And I plan to "keep on keeping on" with this as long as I am able. I'm happy you're here for the ride.
