Island of Forgotten Memories
Kevin Laurence's music has developed from single notes on a piano to a unique and eclectic repertoire of original music. With influences such as Billy Joel, Elton John, The Beatles and countless others, Kevin has created a sound that took the 23 year old singer-songwriter years to develop. At the young age of five, the foundation of Kevin's musical journey was laid when he would spend hours at the piano figuring out the tunes he would hear as his dad's vinyl collection would be playing out of the home office. Throughout elementary and middle school, Kevin consistently rebelled against piano teachers that wanted him to play the notes on the page as he was insistent on making up his own songs. Tragically, Kevin's number one fan, his father was killed in a car accident in 2001. He was left devastated and delved into writing songs that expressed the pain he felt from the loss of his father. This was a turning point in Kevin's life that only stimulated his drive to fulfill his dream of becoming a songwriter and performer. Kevin began to have numerous bookings throughout high school and college at cocktail hours, corporate functions, and fundraisers throughout the greater Miami area. In the summer of 2006, Kevin recorded a five track demo in a friend's bedroom which eventually led him to producer Keith Morrison in Miami, Florida. There, they embarked on creating "Green To Red EP'; a collection of songs that would become his debut album. Nearly two years since the release of 'Green To Red EP', Kevin has completed production on his follow-up effort entitled 'Island Of Forgotten Memories'. The seven-track album was self-produced with an objective to make a record focused on the songs themselves rather than fancy production. The album will be released in June 2009 on CDbaby, iTunes, and other online retailers. !!! Start Code To Apply Top Banner !!!! Custom top banner code by Eileen !!! End Code To Apply Top Banner !!!
