About Kevin Patt
Kevin has been performing since he was eleven when he would
sing with his father Danny Patt, a professional keyboard player. Started
playing guitar at age 12 when his father gave him a Gibson Melody Maker guitar
and amp for his birthday. Danny encouraged Kevin to take guitar lessons and
learn music on a professional level. Kevin was a natural and learned to play
and read music at a rapid pace.
By the time Kevin reached high school he was playing in a
band for school dances and parties.
After high school Kevin studied music in college, as a voice
major although he sang Italian arias and operatic music, his love was country
and rock music. Heavily influenced by Ricky Nelson, Elvis Presley, Buddy Holly,
Roy Orbison the Beatles and Beach Boys. Kevin listened to all the singers from
the sixties to present and learned singing techniques for all of them. He has
developed his own unique vocal style based on all these vocal influences.
Since Kevin could play a melody with chords guitar style, he
performed for many years as a solo musician. Singing and playing guitar thru
college around Massachusetts and Connecticut and later in the Miami Florida
area he was able to continue his musical career and make a reasonable living.
While between music gigs Kevin took a job as a pitchman
selling Ginsu Knives in Home Shows and fairs around the New England area. This
job took Kevin away from his music career but soon he began writing children
songs as a result of reading and listening to motivational books and tapes
specifically for salesmen.
Kevin wanted to create a motivational course for children to
learn these rules for success. From a dream his wife, Lorraine, had, they
created the Legend of The Dream Spirits, Chanson the Mood Maker and Someille
the Dream Duster. This was a musical
fantasy story, which would teach self-esteem, success techniques children could
relate to. After four years of recording and production they finally had the
first CD ready for sale. Kevin soon learned that promotion was a full time job
and could not afford to do it. So he kept selling kitchen gadgets and writing
more country and rock songs. He realized he had a gift to create music and has
been developing his craft to this day.
Thanks to recognition of these special talents by Doc
Holiday, Kevin now has recorded one of his favorite songs written to his wife,
“Kisses”. Now the listening world has the opportunity to enjoy the unique
talent of Kevin Patt.
