This debut album ‘Ten Shades of Blues’ was 8 years in the making, and encompasses the stories and rich life experiences Kev has had raising a family of four children. In order to support his family he worked for 11 years as a truck driver specialising in transporting large boating vessels, and drove all around the country, sometimes being away from home for up to 3 months at a time. More recently he worked as an Aboriginal Discovery Ranger with Parks NSW as a cultural interpreter tour guide of country, as well as chairman of Aboriginal Education on the mid-north coast. With his mother and grandmother being part of the Stolen Generation, reconnecting to his Indigenous heritage has been a lifelong learning experience.
Kev was raised on the Sunshine Coast at Coolum Beach, before living in Coffs Harbour for nine years. Earlier this year he and his family moved to Bundaberg, where he is still adjusting to rural Queensland life.
His debut album, ‘Ten Shades of Blues’, was recorded at the CAAMA Music studio in Alice Springs and will be released Friday 8 July. The album will be launched at the Bello Winter Music Festival on 9 July 2016.
