Multi-talented KEVEN is an Urban Pop artist from, Salt Lake City, Utah. Easy to compare to Michael Jackson and Prince with his smooth R&B falsetto driven vocals and dramatic lively performances. His current album, "ECLIPSE" has propelled him to #2 on The ReverbNation Pop Charts.

Dateline: Los Angeles, California, March 14th, 2012 – Multi-talented Urban Pop Artist, KEVEN has recently released his new CD, Eclipse, which features the single, "I've Been There Too" KEVEN has been climbing to the top of the ReverbNation Charts to the #2 spot on Pop Artists. His single, "I've Been There Too" will also be featured on the upcoming Compilation, "Indie Anthems". The compilation, which is produced by the WiFiPR Group to showcase new artists they have recently signed to their client roster, will come out as digital release only and be distributed at upcoming music festivals and industry events including SXSW in Austin, TX in March.

They say that the pain inspires some of the greatest works from an artist and when KEVEN began his journey in music, he did so against great physical challenges. Says KEVEN, "Growing up with asthma, I was always informed of what I could not do. Singing was of course one of the largest no- no's in addition to dancing. Yet despite the no's my voice refused to be denied. In many ways being a singer has strengthened my lungs, which has allowed me to be the aggressive dancer I am on stage. This was a motivation. However, much of my music comes from inner strife and life observations." Then in 2009, he suffered a cancer scare while dealing with a severely debilitating spinal injury, to which he credits his faith for helping him to overcome both.

Little did he realize then, that his strives and struggles would serve as a catalyst that would propel his music to the top of the ReverbNation Pop charts, surpassing tens of thousands of artists in that genre.

KEVEN is a multi-talented performer who sings, acts, dances, produces and directs. Growing up in Indiana, he honed his talents with an invite to join the prestigious and nationally respected Children's Choir.

Throughout highschool he appeared in many theatrical productions and went on to star in a commercial for the U.S. Navy and a film for the U.S. Army. His ambition and motivation continued to grow, landing him in the spotlight on the MGM Grand stage in Vegas, where he won an award in vocal excellence after being invited to sing a Stevie Wonder song. Soon thereafter he began to independently book and tour southern California venues including the Chaparral Live Room, and Disney's The House of Blues in Anaheim.

His latest release, ECLIPSE, features band members such as Renny J on bass guitar who has worked with artists such as Alicia Keys, Rihanna, Toni Braxton and Donna Summers.

When asked about what influences his songwriting, KEVEN explained, "Much of my music comes from inner strife and life observations. Such strife I have experienced as a professional actor in Hollywood, as an indie recording artist, within my finances, my personal health, and when working with people that claim to be in tune with the objects of my artistic work… but turned out to be sharks. Like few of the figures in the Bible, much of my work is also a conversation with God. It is when I am writing that I feel that I am in sync with God's spirit. Such conversations are joyous and pained testimonials and confrontations."

Here is what the press has said about KEVEN and his music:
"You are very talented KEVEN ! Keep making it happen." -Foxman - Foxman Review

"KEVEN is truly breath taking and remarkable! I haven't herd anything like the sound of KEVEN and I love it! Moving, Meaningful and magic! AWESOME Work!" - Donovan Smith, Bayside Forest Review

"Love the music cascading down. Vocals right on the money. Cool electric licks and a fine lyric. Drum keeps it movin'. Very well done."- AOM Artist of the Month
