Kevin Killen / Press

“Philadelphia seems to be fast becoming an epicenter for singer/songwriters, and Kevin Killen is an excellent example. Like many singer/songwriters, his songs can be hard to fit into just one genre, and his music takes influences from folk, alt rock, jazz, and Americana. Probably his strongest point is his catchy choruses, which always seem to bring the song full circle.”

“Kevin Killen on drums and very light harmony. Just like with the bass, the drums could have overwhelmed Chris’ sound. Not so in the hands of Kevin. I’ll tell you what I told Kevin when we bumped into him on the street after the show: “You are the brush master!”. Yes, most of the set was played with the brushes, to excellent effect. Kevin’s cymbal play was outstanding.”

“Almost two weeks ago I saw Joe D’Amico at World Cafe Live for his Asleep In My Shoes CD Release Show and it was amazing. I loved the fact that I got to see Joe D’Amico again last night. D’Amico’s music is so good. D’Amico was playing with a talented group of musicians: Philip D’Agostino (bass), Brad Hinton (lap steel, vocals), Bethany Brooks (keys, vocals) and Kevin Killen (drums). “Monsters” opened the set followed by “Asleep In My Shoes”. There were several other songs before the set ended with “Late Nights (Early Mornings)”. Oh, let’s not forget the crowd participation portion…a kick-flip on a skateboard from a fan during the mid-set intermission – very entertaining. If there is one thing that I absolutely love about Joe D’Amico’s music especially when I hear it live is the ability to witness those killer, mesmerizing jams (towards the end of the songs) first hand. Wow!”
