Kevin Stevenson: Drummer, Composer

Kevin was born in Cleveland,Ohio. His earliest musical influences were his father, a jazz singer and his uncle Leon, a well-known jazz drummer on the local and national music scenes. At a young age, Kevin played clarinet in junior high and took drum lessons from his uncle. “I remember as a kid watching my uncle perform as I stood watching from outside the club. He sat up in the window and he would look at me and smile while playing. Man! It was right then and there I knew I wanted to play the drums.”

In college Kevin pursued music while attending the University of Cincinnati in Ohio. He developed his writing skills through private instruction, by listening to many styles of music and going to concerts weekly. While playing locally in Cleveland, he decided to relocate to New York City in May 1979 with trombonist Lloyd Jones. It was here that Kevin continued studying with master drummers Michael Carvin and Jim Payne(NBC Orchestra)....
