My name is Kevin and I am an artist and composer from Northern California. I have a B.A. in Music Composition (Seattle Pacific University), a Certificate in Sound Design (Point Blank Music School, UK), and have formally studied Graphic Design (The Art Institute of Portland), as well as Psychology (Western Seminary).
I began writing music in college, playing in bands and gigging around the Seattle scene in the early 2000s. I started writing Glowworm’s’ instrumental songs in 2005 as a side project. I recorded Glowworm’s first album in 2007 with the help of drummer Jesse Robert W., releasing The Coachlight Woods in 2008. Music from this album has been widely praised, as well as used in many feature films, television, and national radio programs (e.g. NPR's ‘This American Life’). It currently has over 27 million streams on Spotify.
From 2005-2008, I was a member of the band Pacific UV (WARM Records), recording the album Longplay 2. The album scored a 7.9 on Pitchforkmedia and placement on the 2009 season finale of HBO's Californication.
In 2012, I began releasing music as Beta Cicadae. Mouna was released on Elegua Records to positive international acclaim (Experimedia, antigravitybunny). I self mixed, mastered and released Dirt and Sky in 2015, which remains a personal favorite achievement.
I am currently working with Pleasant Artist Management (Hammock, Slow Meadow) to promote a series of new Glowworm singles, leading up to a second full length LP in 2019.
I live in Macon, GA with my wife, son, and our dog. When not writing music, I enjoy dabbling in film photography, watercolor, and graphic design.
