"Super awesome, bad ass, versatile crazy drummer and all around great engineer. This ginger viking pirate will get your music sounding super nice and radio ready. Kev has a pretty large range as far as his genre capabilities. (I should know I've had him play all kinds of things) RnB, metal, ballads to hip hop etc. This red haired Tasmanian devil of rhythm also has a great vibe which makes long hours in the studio more fun and less arduous or tedious. He's dedicated to getting your stuff sounding awesome. I have consulted him on mixes often, as he is one of the ears in the industry that I trust. That's saying a lot because a lot of the people I work with have won multiple grammies. It's also notable that Kev is always very fair, and he makes sure to put in extra effort so that you get what you want. His work ethic is crazy. It's an unfair understatement to say that Kev works very hard. I've done maybe 20 songs with Kev and all have been super awesome.” -Chuck Chilla

"We are incredibly honored and grateful to have recorded 17 original tracks with such a talented and hard working musician. Kevin is a very dedicated man that has inspired Figured Out to become better and stronger as professional musicians. He has enriched our music with ideas that are outside the box and has pushed the project towards the very concept we were aiming towards when we initially hired him. It has been a beautiful journey thus far and we hope it is still only the beginning of a magical trip to the stars and beyond! Anyone that has the privilege of working with such talent is quite the lucky human." - Lili B, Figured Out
