Kevin So

Updated on May 23, 2014

Kevin So


Kevin So is an amazing singer songwriter who grew up in the Boston area and now lives in Nashville. He plays everything from folk to R&B. If you are looking for new music give him a listen. He's extremely talented and a great performer.

UPDATE:

Kevin reached his goal on Kickstarter. A new album is now in the works. :)

History

When I was in college my on-campus job was working for stage crew. It wasn't through the theater department, but through our Campus Entertainment Network. That was an amazing job...perfect for me. One of the options was working our Coffee Concerts where local singer songwriters would come and perform. I would set up the stage area, talk to the performers and then sit and watch the show. When it was over I'd get to talk to them again as I'd break down for the night. I got to see new and rising talent up close. I quickly became addicted to the New England folk scene.

One of my favorites early on was Kevin So. I don't recall the date when I first saw him. But I remember he played once, then months later I saw him on television. Later, during my final year of school (so it was 1999), he came back to play another Coffee Concert. I had recognized him and told him I remembered him performing and how much I liked his music and we started talking. We clicked right away and ended up becoming friends. After I graduated we would hang out and I'd go to shows with him. Really fun times.

He moved from Boston to Chicago and we lost touch for a while. He later moved to New York and I got to see him play a few times when he was out this way. It's hard now since I'm no longer a young college student or recent grad with free time and minimal responsibilities. I'm a wife and a mom and I don't live quite so close to Boston anymore so it's hard to get out to shows. But now and then I can swing it and I always enjoy his concerts.

Kevin now calls Nashville home and he's been touring the world with Keb Mo.

Individual - This was the K. So song that got me hooked.
