Based in the heart of Angus in Scotland, in a studio overlooked by an Iron Age Hill Fort and being born and raised in Scotland with Irish connections on both sides of his family, it was almost inevitable that a Celtic influence would creep into Kevin’s music. However, his other musical interests include ‘Classical’ music from the renaissance to the 21st Century, rock music in all its various forms, folk, blues, ‘world’ music and sound design., The title song of his first album  Clarinda’s Reply has been described as “moving and appropriate” by leading authority on Robert Burns, Professor Ken Simpson. While his CD Clarinda’s Reply is one of the few modern artifacts to have been included in the world famous Ross Roy Collection of Burns memorabilia held at the University of South Carolina. His tune The Lion and The Cross  has been suggested as a potential new Scottish National Anthem on a number of occasions. Kevin has also produced music for TV and Radio adverts, Educational CD’s and Historical Documentaries. He has a Diploma in Media Composition from the Film Music Institute in Los Angeles and is a member of the British Academy of Composers and Songwriters

Working with Mike Gibb over the past few years Kevin has written and performed the music for two musical plays – Sunday Mornings on Dundee Law (2007) and  Clarinda (2008).

In recent years Mike Gibb has produced a number of Scottish musical plays including A Land Fit For Heroes, Mother of All the Peoples (the first musical ever performed in the Scottish Parliament at Holyrood), Five Pound And Twa Bairns , Sunday Mornings On Dundee Law and Clarinda. The trilogy of Dundee musicals raised in excess of £40,000 for the charity The Mary Slessor Foundation to assist with their work in Calabar, Nigeria. Mike has written three plays Children of the Sea, about the Eyemouth Fishing Disaster, Lest We Forget, commissioned to commemorate the 20th anniversary of the Piper Alpha oil disaster, which premiered in Aberdeen in July 2008 and toured Scotland in May 2009, and Doorways In Drumorty  which will premiere in October 2010 before touring.

Mike has also written three books on a “canine” theme – It’s A Dawgs LifeWaiting For The Master and, most recently, Ask Anna – An A to Z Guide For Dogs (To Help Them Understand Humans). The proceeds from all three books go directly to DAWGS, a charity that rescues abandoned and unwanted dogs, of which Mike was a co-founder in 1994.

Just listened to the CD, and doubtless you've heard from others that the music and lyrics are quite lovely and representative of the wonderful Gabaldon work. I really don't know why Ms. Gabaldon's story has hit such a resonant chord in so many folks, both in the US and abroad, but it has indeed and you both have brought it to life in a thoroughly enjoyable way! DO bring it live (a show, a musical, or even a live CD performance) to the Yanks sometime, please, in some form! Thank you for sharing the gifts of yours and Kevin's talent w/us.
