Kevin Stanley / Bio

My name is Kevin and I'm a singer-songwriter-guitarist-bassist-drummer from San Diego. Most of the music I write is alternative rock, but I am experimenting with incorporating hip hop, jazz, and hard rock/metal elements into my songs. My writing encompasses a wide range of styles and influences. I try to collaborate as much as possible with fellow musical pioneers to really diversify my sound.

Right now I am a student studying guitar at Musician's Institute in Hollywood. I'm also doing a lot of songwriting for my debut EP, expected to come out next year. Some of my songs I have already recorded and released, and some I only play at live shows around Los Angeles. For now, I am an acoustic solo act. When my CD comes out, I will be supporting it with a full band, and maybe even an electric trianglist (haha).

I plan to take the Audio Engineering and Independent Artist programs at MI so I can learn to be my own producer, writer, graphic designer, my own everything. That's the plan.

I recently moved to LA from Maryland (I lived there for a while inbetween living in San Diego and LA), where I started playing guitar and singing at age 8. I started drums at 11. In my early years, I played talent shows and school events, sometimes with garage-type bands, and sometimes by myself. In high school, I started playing in an alt-rock/Zeppelin cover band and a post-hardcore metal band, both on drums. I had some great times, but I decided to graduate early and move back to SoCal to pursue my career in music. So far it's unbelievable!

When I was little, I wanted to have magic powers. I wanted to be able to fly or to turn invisible whenever I wanted, because I wanted to be able to do things that made people say "wow". I guess at some point, I found something that could affect people way more than pretend magic. Because to me, music is the real thing.
