His guitar melodies range from simple acoustics to classic rock and roll and his voice tells a
unique brand of story through music. Yet, even with the range and variety that make up the
ingredients for his songs, there’s one thing each one has in common: Kevin takes you to a place where everything makes sense, and once you’re there he aims simply to put a smile on your face.

Kevin Babb

His guitar melodies range from simple acoustics to classic rock and roll and his voice tells a
unique brand of story through music. Yet, even with the range and variety that make up the
ingredients for his songs, there’s one thing each one has in common: Kevin takes you to a place where everything makes sense, and once you’re there he aims simply to put a smile on your face.
