LIVE WITH GRACE:
On July 20, 2020, Kevin needed to write down what he was thinking of these unprecedented times. Live with Grace was born that day, and one month later, it had been fully recorded, a music video had been finished and on August 19, 2020 Kevin released the song into the world from his YouTube page. A song of hope, peace, forgiveness, love and grace. Check out his newest video HERE.
SONGS THAT I HAVE WRITTEN and Before:
Kevin Wood presents his 4th full-length studio album, "Songs That I Have Written" (2019). This compilation of songs, sung entirely live in the studio, encompasses originals as early as 1999 and as current as 2019. These songs are the most intimate of Kevin's released yet. Kevin's other albums include "Out Among The Wolves" (2014), "Finding Me" (2006) and "Haven't Had Enough" (2002). Each of these "books" of Kevin's music are a testament to Kevin's unfailing commitment to his love of songwriting and performing.
Singer/songwriter and past RENT National Tour cast member, Kevin brings to us the sounds of such influential artists as Billy Joel, Elton John and Sara Bareilles. Always accompanying himself on the piano, Kevin proves to make each performance a refreshing and uplifting experience.
His songwriting has been described as "emotionally profound and musically potent," and in 2000 this hallmark style of Kevin's was recognized nationally when he received honorable mention in the John Lennon Songwriting Contest for his song, Drive. "What we really need right now is a road trip...," says Kevin with a genuine smile, and his words come from personal experience.
Kevin sailed the world on Holland America's ms Westerdam, where he entertained thousands of traveling vacationers. Before that he traveled with the national tour of RENT where he played his dream roles of Roger and Mark. While attending Berklee College of Music in Boston, he dazzled audiences in numerous showcases, received awards from both the vocal and songwriting departments, and by his graduation, had performed as a lead vocalist in an honorary concert for the present Walter Becker and Donald Fagen of Steely Dan. A small-town Wyoming native, Kevin has ventured far from his home and become a seasoned songwriter and a confident, natural performer.
