Kevin Cochran

In the growing age of the singer songwriter, very few artists possess the natural
ability to relay emotion directly through a song with such fluid lyrical fashion. "You
know when you hear a song for the first time, and you just can't stop yourself from
starting it over and listening again? That is Kevin Cochran music to a T..." - David Kim
of 3M Music Inc.

Chicago native Kevin Cochran has been recording and performing music over 15
years and is currently wrapping up production on the 4th upcoming album due out in
the Spring of 2012. Over the years, you may have heard Kevin’s smooth and easy
going folk rock sound on the same stage as many industry giants, including the Goo
Goo Dolls, Pink, O.A.R., Parachute, Michelle Branch, and Gavin DeGraw, just to name
a few.

The 3rd Album titled "The Quarter After Life" brought many of the same styles of
previous albums, but with a more mature experienced Kevin Cochran behind the
songwriting. The Quarter After Life featured 12 tracks, including the debut singles In
Circles, This Year and Let Me Know You're Mine. Also on the disc is Kevin's first ever
recorded cover song, Van Morrison's Into The Mystic . The CD was released nationally
in September of 2009.

Combined with already established satellite radio and iTunes success, Kevin has
teamed up with a slew of Chicago recording artists and legendary producer Chris
Hagan (716 Records) on the upcoming fourth album and has hinted this album to be
unlike anything he's ever produced before... "I've been performing, recording and
writing songs for over 15 years now, have 3 albums, and almost 50 original recorded
compositions floating out there at this point, and the songs we're putting together on
this thing are hands down the best sounding music I've ever done... legit, legit. " -
