New Song: “Bilge Rat Blues”

Here’s another new song from Kevin’s upcoming EP, “Solo: The Return of No Schedule Man.” For this one, think pirates, palm trees, boat drinks, beaches, white sand, clear blue water and … freedom.

Yo-ho-ho 🙂

Enjoy!

New Song, “Deja Vu” Out Now!

Kevin’s brand new song, “Deja Vu,” is now available for streaming and/or download at Bandcamp.

A video with lyrics to the song has also been posted to YouTube:

Here is a little info from Kevin about the song:

I wrote this song in 2006. Aside from a couple of different chord implementations and a few arrangement tweaks here and there, the song remains the same as when it was originally conceived. However, the first home demo I made of this track featured electric guitar and a driving drum beat. I always figured it would be a pop departure on an album of rock songs that I still hope to make one day. But when this particular project came to life, “Déjà vu” held up best as the song that sounded like a few folks on a front porch could bring it to life with just a couple of acoustic guitars, a shaker and a couple of voices. In that sense, this song became the backbone of the project.

As for the lyrics, I have often experienced the sensation of déjà vu. When it happens, I figure it means I’m on the right path. Whether or not that true is anyone’s guess.

I also used to dream, frequently, of tornadoes. Whenever a “tornado dream” would come along, I would take it to mean that major changes and/or shakeups were afoot. And it most often turned out to be the case. I’m glad to say I don’t have tornado dreams much anymore (although, I did have one in September of 2013, during the post production of this project).

What really sealed the deal with finally trying to record this song is how much my oldest son, Eddie, seems to love it. He has consistently encouraged me to record it pretty much from the moment he first heard it, which was six or seven years after it was first written.

This one’s for Eddie, who has been a constant encouragement and always an inspiration.

I love you, Eddie!!
