Born and raised on the rough edges of a Northampton Council Estate, Kev found a new love for the acoustic guitar, singing, and songwriting at the age of 30. Before this time he spent many years as a music teacher and session guitarist, garnering over a million views on YouTube. Completely changing his musical direction was a risk he was willing to take, as this time he knew it was exactly what he was going to spend his life doing. Fast-forward five years, he has recorded an EP 'All You Need - 2015' in New York at Old Soul Studios, a debut album 'Stories of the Sky - 2017' and a second album 'Modern Stories - 2019'. Both albums were recorded with a Mercury-nominated producer in Brighton, UK and were supported by grant awards from Arts Council UK. He has toured internationally playing some of the UK's and Europe's finest venues. His debut album Stories of the Sky has gained over 200,000 streams on Spotify, and his animated video release for the single Dark Stars has over 50,000 views which has received great praise.

Modern Stories

Kev's second album Modern Stories features songs that reflect our current time. A topical album, which muses on subjects such as mental health, technology, human connection and addiction that are more apparent in our ever-changing modern times. This album was recorded with producer Jag Jago (Maccabees/Florence Welch) and instrumentation arranged by Andrew Stuart-Buttle. A highly intelligent, emotionally intimate and intricately arranged work of songs that will surely take Kev Minney's career to the next level.
