THE MUSIC OF KEVIN KERN

Kevin Kern was a child prodigy playing the piano at the astounding age of eighteen months. He began studying with a private tutor at the age of four. Founding his own group, the Well Tempered Clavichord at age fourteen they made their professional debut. Kevin attended the University Of Michigan's School Of Music and studied with renowned pianist Mischa Kottler.
Kevin received a Master's Degree in Performance and a Bachelor of Music Degree from the New England Conservatory Of Music. After leaving school he played the local scene of Boston for ten years. In 1990, Kevin moved to San Francisco and began playing live gigs. The more he played, the larger his audience grew. Already an accomplished musician, Kevin was discovered in 1995 by Terence Yallop, the founder of Real Music label. He was at the time playing piano in a local San Francisco hotel. After signing Kevin to the label, he immediately started working on his first album. With an incredible flair for composition, the songs seemed to come from him effortlessly. 1996 was the beginning of his record career with the release of In the Enchanted Garden. It was an instant hit among the new age, jazz, and classical audience. It also became a critic's favorite. His second release, Beyond the Sundial, takes the music to another level. Kevin's influences run right across the board. His music is melodic and truly inspiring. With the release of Summer Daydreams, in 1998, Kevin returns to the scene with more incredible compositions, adding violin and cello to the arrangements; In My Life followed in 1999 and Embracing the Wind was issued in early 2001.

ENDLESS BLUE SKY features Kern doing more of what he does best, featuring a set of original compositions performed in his signature style. Most of the tracks consist of solo piano, though strings, violin and acoustic guitar appear from time to time.

IMAGINATION'S LIGHT BY KEVIN KERN

IMAGINATION'S LIGHT BY KEVIN KERN graphic Sensitivity and sentimentality converge on the whimsical sonic portraits of Kevin Kern. The accomplished pianist, who recently had the honor of being invited to become a Steinway artist, has a light, serene touch on the ivories that soothes the spirit and conjures up daydreams. IMAGINATION'S LIGHT was inspired by Kern's penchant for favoring dimly lit or fire lit environments for composing; he feels the romantic ambiance enhances his creativity. The music here fits that mood, incorporating pieces that are quiet and tranquil with a hint of sweetness. Helping to flesh out the soundscapes is the sound of synthesizer atmosphere and acoustic guitar.

IN THE ENCHANTED GARDEN


IN THE ENCHANTED GARDEN by kevin kern graphic Rarely does music truly sound like it comes from the heart and soul. Kevin Kern's "In the Enchanted Garden" fits the bill. This release has not only a beautiful album cover but some downright gorgeous original classical/new age compositon. Kern plays acoustic piano and keyboards and is accompanied by minimal backup consisting of acoustic guitar and strings.

WINDING PATH BY KEVIN KERN

WINDING PATH BY KEVIN KERN graphic Given the fact that a large portion of Kevin Kern's poignant melodies lend themselves to imaginative flights of fancy, it's not surprising that he would decide to theme an album after a mental journey - actually, it seems like the next logical step. THE WINDING PATH features plenty of Kern's signature piano flourishes and emotive compositions, backed by percussion, flutes, synthesizers and keyboard filigree (especially those trimmings that give the music a "magical" effect). The album's title alludes to the prescribed visualization exercise, where listeners are encouraged to imagine themselves wandering through an Eden-like forest, shedding their cares with every step. Whether used for meditation or simply relaxation, this is a beautiful album worth its slot in your CD rotation.
