How would you describe your musical style and what artists do you look up to?
I’ve worked to create a unique sound that resonates with my lyrics. “Deep End” is pop driven record with lots of syncopated elements. Some of my biggest influences are Lauv, LANY, Trove, and Jon Bellion.
You are gearing up for the release of your debut single “Deep End”!! Can you spill any details on what it was like creating this song?
I wrote “Deep End” about dealing with anxiety and wondering if it gets better. It’s about keeping hope in hard situations.
What does it feel like to be releasing your own original music?
I’ve been working on this project for over a year. I share some of my personal struggles and experiences and can’t wait for everyone to hear it all.
What’s your process of choosing a song to record?
I love the whole development of creating music. Writing, producing, and whole creative process is what I enjoy the most. When everything comes together like this song did for me, it feels really special.
Are you making a music video for “Deep End”?
100%! We plan to release a live, semi-striped video for Deep End. It’s super fun!
Will there be an EP/Album out soon?
Yes! This will be the first record off the EP. Can’t wait to share the rest of the music this summer!
What social media platform do you use most to stay connected to your fans?
I’m on all social media @kevinkolkmusic but Instagram is where I like to share most of my stuff!
Why do you think social media is so important for teen artists today?
It’s a great way to connect! Get to know people who share the same interests! You can also see a more personal side of me. I love to run, wakesurf and do other things outside of music too!
What’s an average day for you look like?
I usually wake up early and run 4 or 5 miles every day. And then spend the better half of my day working on music! Writing, producing, playing guitar and piano or just listening.
What do you like to do in your free time?
spend a lot of time at the lake, training for cross country/ track, working out, and obviously music.
