WHAT IS IT ABOUT?
Born of Argentine mother and American father, Kevin Johansen deliberately plays with his bilingualism and forces us into his own private world. Fun, deep, playful, smart, thoughtful are just a few of the adjectives that could be used to define his lyrics. His privileged voice, ranging from deep Barry White style to high-pitched Hindu, invades every song and manages to mesmerise from the first track. Cumbias flamencos, Celtic Sambarera and Hip pop are just a few of the names with which Kevin himself defines the style of his songs. Because he cannot be defined into one specific style, he often likes to define himself as ‘de-genreate’.
