More about Kevin:
"The creative spirit is a lawless creature. She doesn’t care for clock time. She shows up at her convenience and of her own volition.”

Kevin Farris is a singer-songwriter from the Chicagoland area, penning gritty/soulful and undeniably catchy songs, that cross the pop rock and indie-folk genres.

A musical journey that started in his youth and unfolds into the present...Kevin cultivates his own creative spirit through powerful vocals and a sense of melodic intentionality. Thanks to familial influence, Kevin gained inspiration from a unique range of artists all while developing his own taste and musical sensibility.
