"Kevin Kern was a child prodigy playing the piano at the astounding age of eighteen months. He began studying with a private tutor at the age of four. Founding his own group, the Well Tempered Clavichord at age fourteen they made their professional debut. Kevin attended the University Of Michigan's School Of Music and studied with renowned pianist Mischa Kottler."
"Kevin received a Master's Degree in Performance and a Bachelor of Music Degree from the New England Conservatory Of Music. After leaving school he played the local scene of Boston for ten years. In 1990, Kevin moved to San Francisco and began playing live gigs. The more he played, the larger his audience grew. Already an accomplished musician, Kevin was discovered in 1995 by Terence Yallop, the founder of Real Music label. He was at the time playing piano in a local San Francisco hotel. After signing Kevin to the label, he immediately started working on his first album. With an incredible flair for composition, the songs seemed to come from him effortlessly. 1996 was the beginning of his record career with the release of In the Enchanted Garden. It was an instant hit among the new age, jazz, and classical audience. It also became a critic's favorite. His second release, Beyond the Sundial, takes the music to another level. Kevin's influences run right across the board. His music is melodic and truly inspiring. With the release of Summer Daydreams, in 1998, Kevin returns to the scene with more incredible compositions, adding violin and cello to the arrangements; In My Life followed in 1999 and Embracing the Wind was issued in early 2001. Kevin Kern is a definite mainstay in the world of music."
"Beginning with his phenomenally successful debut album, In the Enchanted Garden, in 1996, which appeared on the Billboard charts for 26 weeks, Kevin has developed his own unique musical voice. At the center of this style, is a process that has come to be known as "sound-painting."
"Though my vision lacks the crisp detail that others may have, I have learned to describe what I see through my music", says Kevin. "It is something that has always come naturally to me, and I've done it all my life. Whether describing a baseball game to my father when I was a child or playing a night filled with stars ( as on The Winding Path ), it's all part of that special relationship I feel with the piano."
Kevin's music is magical - it transforms you to a different place, which is the intent of this type of music. The major difference from this CD to all the other new age [poo] that is out there is that this guy can really play, and the emotions that he is trying to capture with each piece really works. I have been a new age fan before it was called 'new age' ( early 1980's ), and am a huge fan of all the Windham Hill and Narada artists that sound like this.
The REAL difference here is that there is no new age ploy behind this CD - Kevin is truly trying to bring you into the 'Enchanted Garden', and the tasteful additions of guitar and orchestra are well done and not cheesy. This CD will not turn anyone into a new age 'convert' - however anyone looking for a CD to really mellow themselves out after a hard day at work, or just looking for something soothing that is not like the new age [poo] in the stores, look no further than this gem. For those fans of David Lanz, Tom Barabas, Liz Story or William Aaberg, you will be right at home with this CD. ~ Michael J Harrington
