Kevin Gruen is a tireless songwriter from St. Louis, Missouri with radio placement on FM stations such as KDHX 88.1 FM St. Louis and KVCM 95.1 FM Los Angeles, among others. He can often be found doing anywhere from 4 to 6 shows weekly around St. Louis area and touring the states. His live shows  convey his vast music vocabulary from rock, jazz, blues, to folk, originals and country classics which creates a unique original sound, making every show refreshing and new. His one-man-band act consists of singing and playing guitar or keyboard while using his feet to play a suitcase kick drum on one foot and a tambourine on the other.

 

            This 25-year-old multi-instrumentalist also performs with several duos, trios and full bands. Kevin wrote and produced his first album in 2020 and is in the process of recording another EP. He is featured on many Spotify playlists and has been interviewed on podcasts such as NoColor Podcast, Artist United Network and Overtime Studios Radio Show. His shows are listed on concert calendars such as 88.1 FM KDHX, among other local sources, and he has opened for other blues acts such as Jeremiah Johnson! Kevin has also received FM radio play on 95.1 FM KVCM Los Angeles, as well as 88.1 FM KDHX St. Louis. Kevin's unique progressive sound consists of an eclectic blend of funk, soul, rock n' roll, blues, classic country, reggae and beyond!
