When slinging this album around to listeners around the globe, the most common response to date is, “Who the heck is this!?......Can I buy one!?” The album in question belongs to none other than folk musician Christopher Kevin.
The first track “Dishwashing Blues” is riddled with clever verses and a catchy chorus held to tempo by the simplicity of beating the back of his guitar.
When asked about the origin of the second track “Mona Lisa” in an interview with Music Patch Magazine he replied, “It was written while I was staying at a friend’s house for a short while. She had Mona Lisa painting on her wall and I used to yell at it.
"MONA!!! SMILE!!!....BIGGER! SHOW ME TEETH; COME ON MONA SMILE!!!"
Growing up in southern California on a ranch once owned by James Cagney, he discovered an old guitar in a barn on the property. After taking the old guitar to the small local music shop, it was equipped with a new set of strings and a young boy equipped with the “G” chord. He’s been plugging away ever since.
To date, his two EP releases “The sittin’ around EP” and “Mona” have been sold to his fans across the globe. Regional touring has helped Christopher to find that ever sought after “Buzz”
that so many young artist crave. He was quoted saying, “I don’t want some huge million dollar contract or anything. I would rather travel the country in a Winnebago playing shows that allow me to spend time with my fans afterwards. Its not fair music fans cant sit around with the artists and make some cool memories…I like doing that; and I will continue to do that.”
