Kevin So has earned the respect of Keb' Mo', Billy Bragg and Amos Lee, and has built a loyal fan base around the world for the past 15 years. He was recently hired as mulit-instrumentalist in the KEB MO BAND and has been on tour internationally with them since July '11. He has performed on the main stages at some of the most prestigious folk festivals across the US (Kerrville, Falcon Ridge, Newport), and more recently at Carnegie Hall and The Ryman in Nashville.
Kevin was also proud recipient of the 2007 NYC Fringe Festival Award (Best Music & Lyrics) for “Great Wall” – a semi-autobiographical musical soon to be further developed this coming summer in Seattle at The Village Theatre's 2012 Festival of New Musicals, and in collaboration with Tony Award winning playwright David Henry Hwang.
Currently based in Nashville, his songs have been recently recorded by Keb' Mo' and soul songstress India Arie ("Crush On You") and blues singer Shemekia Copeland ("Sounds Like The Devil"). He is blues, folk & soul in its finest blend.
