Growing up in and around Gainesville, Fl, hometown of Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers and Don Felder of the Eagles, Sweet Kev is a born explorer of music influenced by generations of musical genius and a dreamer of a world full of love and happiness. Led to entertain and enrich the lives of others, explore the unbeaten paths of yesteryear, with over two decades of learning and playing influenced dramatically by 60s and 70s classics with a new twist of flavor for the modern palate. Music inspired by great classic rock and soul artists such as The Fab lads, Marvin, Petty, Al G, Zep, Hendrix, Stones, Mayfield, Floyd, Zombies, and Otis.
The result of a lifelong appreciation of music has a style that merges Rock and Pop, creating an offspring of neomodern, progressive and psychedelic rock/soul. Also may be considered Power Pop or Retro Rock. Sweet Kev’s music is a unique progeny of all of these, having multiple styles simultaneously. Like the reverent restoration of an old beloved hot rod, Sweet Kev reminds us why we fell for classic rock in the first place.
The Divinistry was created as a form of musical expression and ascension guided by musical icons of the past 60 years. Based on experiences in Sweet Kev's life journey, his crafting as a singer-songwriter translates these dreams of wonder into a carnival of sound.
