Kevin Bull: Kevin Bull, Jr. is an 18-year-old bass player from Northern Virginia. He has always had an ear for the low-end, growing up on R&B and Soul music. Kevin’s early influences include great artists like Stevie Wonder, Mary Mary, and Prince. Starting on the upright bass when he was 12-years-old playing in orchestras, he developed a love for the intricate rhythms of Bach, Vivaldi, and Tchaikovsky. Soon after, Kevin began to take piano and voice lessons, gaining a better understanding of music theory and how to create new melodies. This gave him the necessary tools to make the music he’s always wanted to make. Kevin started branching out into new genres like EDM, Pop, and Rock, when he discovered an Alternative Rock band called Coldplay…a game changer. Listening to all of the Coldplay records and to Guy Berryman’s bass playing made Kevin want to play that exact sound. He got his first electric bass when he was 14-years-old and hasn’t looked back. Playing and touring in numerous bands in the area, most recently The Let Go, Tyler Plazio, and Trio 111, he discovered what the new music industry looks like. Nowadays, one can make their own music, distribute, and promote it all without a label. This knowledge has fueled his new quest to making good music that people will enjoy. Kevin now enters the ring, full throttle, with his new project “Trying My Best,” featuring his first single, Conformity. This song is his battle cry on crushing stereotypes, social, and economic inequalities. “Trying My Best” is now available on all platforms.
