Jean came home one day talking about a friend of hers, a folk art dealer, who had made a CD and she wanted me to listen to it. I groaned inside but decided to be positive. So I put it in the CD player in the car and headed into town. Halfway through the second song on the album (Kevin’s third, titled O Come See the Burning), I was on the phone to her screaming, “Holy Cow, this is GREAT!!! It’s Mark Knopfler meets Bruce Springsteen!”

And that’s how I came to know Kevin, who’s now a friend.

And now the New York Times as come to know him, too. ARTICLE IN TODAY’S PAPER.

Buy the album on iTunes or on Kevin’s website.
