Beginning with his phenomenally successful debut CD, In the Enchanted Garden, Kevin has developed his own unique musical voice where melodies exude lyricism, simplicity, and a directness that touches the heart of the listener.
Though legally blind since birth, his exceptional talent soon became clear. The influence of lifelong friend and mentor, jazz great George Shearing, coupled with a strong classical education helped Kevin to develop an early love of improvisation and an appreciation for the beautiful sound a piano could produce.
Having several Billboard® charting releases, along with numerous international film and TV credits (Oprah, David Letterman, PBS, Mitsubishi), Kevin has acquired a worldwide following. His concert tours have taken him to Korea, Japan, Singapore, and Taiwan as well as the United States.
"My whole life, thus far, has been a celebration of that unique bond I have felt with my favorite musical instrument and 'best friend.' The melodies I have written are a testament to that friendship."
The selections on the Christmas CD range from the simplicity of "What Child is This" to the hauntingly beautiful "Lo, How a Rose E er Blooming". He harkens back to his earliest days, closing the collection with "Silent Night", the very first song he learned to play at the tender age of eighteen months.
