Singer/songwriter and past RENT National Tour cast member Kevin Wood brings to us the sounds of such influential artists as Billy Joel, Elton John and Sara Bareilles. Always accompanying himself on the piano, Kevin proves to make each performance a refreshing and uplifting experience.
His songwriting has been described as "emotionally profound and musically potent," and in 2000 this hallmark style of Kevin's was recognized nationally when he received honorable mention in the John Lennon Songwriting Contest for his song, Drive. "What we really need right now is a road trip...," says Kevin with a genuine smile, and his words come from personal experience.
Kevin recently finished sailing the world on Holland America's ms Westerdam, where he entertained thousands of traveling vacationers. Before that he traveled with the national tour of RENT where he played his dream roles of Roger and Mark. While attending Berklee College of Music in Boston, he dazzled audiences in numerous showcases, received awards from both the vocal and songwriting departments, and by his graduation, had performed as a lead vocalist in an honorary concert for the present Walter Becker and Donald Fagen of Steely Dan. A small-town Wyoming native, Kevin has ventured far from his home and become a seasoned songwriter and a confident, natural performer.
Kevin is currently in the studio recording his third full-length album "Out Among The Wolves" with producer extraordinaire, Alicia Champion at Durga Sound Studios. His previous two albums "Finding Me" (2006) and "Haven't Had Enough" (2002) are a testament to Kevin's unfailing commitment to his love of songwriting and performing.
