Kevin Walton is an unsigned singer songwriter who began his career in Hard-rock thoughout Australia. He still rocks hard when he wants but his music is now more of soulful emotional rock or love rock. He is open to signing with a label.
It began when introduced to The Beatles at a very young age which fueled Kevin's desire to listen to more of this wonderful magic. Young Kevin knew he had to write songs, sing & perform.Watching the Eagles play "Hotel California" live on his little black and white TV in the wee hours of the night (when he was supposed to be asleep) as well as Paul McCartney John Lennon and James Taylor, was truly inspirational. That’s when his desire and determination to play music really kicked in.
As a lead vocalist and guitarist, Kevin Walton would play every pub and venue that would have him! As they ROCKED those venues the audiences wild enthusiasm created his earliest fan-base. Having a true love for performing, Kevin started writing his own music and lyrics, collaborating with some truly gifted musicians, and went on to produce five albums.
The first album, "INDIAN" (1994), proved to be an underground hit. The track, "I Will Follow You" from his second album, "BADLUCK AVENUE" (1998), received airplay on "The David Letterman Show" in the US, Australia and Europe.
Kevin was then contacted by "The Massive Recording Company" in Sydney, Australia. In 1999 they released the single, "Summertime” using the band name Bowe. It became a hit, getting plenty of airplay in Australia and Europe.
After returning to the studio, Kevin released his third album, "INNUENDO" (2003). The single, "All Night Long", was used as the title track for Australia's bull riding DVD, "Ride The Rage", and for Australia's football league, the AFL. The fourth album, "BLEEDING HEARTS" was in production and completed in 2005.
"MOMENTUM", the fifth & latest album was released worldwide on November 7, 2012. The first single,'Stray', was released with a music video as was 'Maybe', 'Little Arrow' then "Breathe', 'Breathe's stunning location is situated in beautiful Lake Louise in the Rocky Mountains of Canada. 'Hey There Sister' was his next music video and single. His latest music video and single released is "Like the Sun".
