As an evolving singer/songwriter, Kevin Masch fuses folk and rock with an eclectic blend of lyrics. His ability to create a story through uncommon strum-patterns and heartfelt lyrics is rooted in a genre of music that has been reinventing itself through a myriad of artists throughout the century.
Kevin grew up in the shadows of Cincinnati, Ohio and after many years of songwriting and bugging his folks, he got a guitar for his 17th birthday and hasn''t put down the six-string since.
"I was raised on James Taylor, so Folk music has been ingrained in my blood," said Masch. "Technically the first concert I went to was a Bob Dylan concert in utero. I like to think that it''s one reason I make music the way I do."
Kevin Masch attended Greenville College, a small Liberal Arts school in Greenville, Illinois. Spending his formative years in the corn fields, he got a good sense of what real life is about and you can hear this in his music. Blue collar values and a modern concept of the roles we play in the community around us are found at the heart of Kevin’s lyrics and the ever changing landscape is the inspiration for his music.
“I like to travel and I think you can hear that in my songs,” Kevin says of his songwriting “Songs of longing for and of finding home.” Some would say we are all searching for home and for Kevin home is both physical and metaphysical, both a place to call your own and a place to be your true self.
With Kevin Masch’s brand of music you get truth in a mellow conversational style. Kevin’s songs are music for life’s soundtrack, raw, straight forward, and unpolished you get whatever Kevin has to offer. You can put on Kevin’s songs to help sort out the noise of the day or perfect support for your daily life.
In the fall and winter of 2005, Kevin moved to Martha''s Vineyard to be part of an artist colony to support musicians and aspiring music business executives. During this time he was signed with 450 Records based in West Tisbury, Massachusetts and played locally in the Cape Cod area. Kevin currently resides in Nashville, Tennessee and is touring cross-country with The Commuter Tour featuring independent artist such as Rod Kim, Joel Gragg and Jenny & Tyler just to name a few. Also touring independently, Kevin will be coming to a city near you to promote his CD “Songs for February”.
