about

With songwriting, Kevin Allred turns the deeply personal into an overtly political statement. He takes his own life experiences and invites all people to share in the common emotions that shape our humanity. Kevin is a fierce live performer, engaging audiences by mixing music, comedy, and politics with only the aid of his acoustic guitar. He has played shows all over the West and has appeared with fellow songwriters Garrin Benfield and Arjuna Greist, among others.

Kevin loved music from a young age. He picked up the guitar at 16 and, using the music training he already had in piano, taught himself how to play. Soon, he was writing his own songs and performing for friends in living rooms and backyards. In 1999, he released the now out of print Demo Tape. In 2000, Kevin took his musical career to the next level, founding Gutter Folk Records and releasing his professionally recorded debut, Sick Today on his label.

In 2002, "Blindside", a spoken word piece from Sick Today was featured on Queer Stock, Queer Soup, a double disc compilation album benefiting queer youth advocacy organizations across the country. The compilation also includes tracks from artists such as Melissa Ferrick, Catie Curtis, Doria Roberts, and Ani Difranco and is released on Hurricane Doria Records.

Kevin Allred is a fierce performer, engaging audiences with a mix of humor and a heart-on-his-sleeve candor that is not readily available in today’s music scene. His live performances blend personal storytelling with raw emotion, all on top of a heavily strummed acoustic guitar and soaring, wide-range vocals. Think acoustic punk rock meets soul singing. ... more
