Kevin Ahart Kevin Ahart

Urbane, velvet-voiced song stylist Kevin Ahart cuts a distinctive figure on his much-anticipated debut release Let’s Take The World My Love. The album’s ten memorable performances find the charismatic young artist singing original and classic cover material in a smoothly expressive voice that echoes those of his vintage saloon-singer heroes, enhancing and extending the American musical traditions from which he draws much of his inspiration.

Taking his cues from the evocative singers and exacting tunesmiths of the golden age that produced the Great American Songbook, Ahart makes heartfelt, timeless music that’s rooted in pop and jazz tradition yet entirely his own, standing apart from transient trends to embrace timeless musical values. The result is an album that embodies the formidable combination of personal passion and disciplined craftsmanship that’s allowed the artist to carve out a distinctive musical identity out of time-honored musical elements.

Hailing from the unlikely environs of Austin, Texas – a musical mecca that’s not known for producing jazz-pop balladeers – Kevin Ahart is a consummate vocal interpreter with a knack for cutting straight to a song’s emotional heart. As comfortable performing with a spare two-piece combo as he is with a full orchestra, he possesses an effortless poise that many performers take decades to develop. Kevin’s vivid musical persona isn’t just a pose that he’s adopted. It’s an honest reflection of his attitude towards life, and of his abiding love for the music in which he’s been steeped since childhood.

All About Jazz needs your support

All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
