Long Bio (for those who love details)

Emerging as an artist in a genre that hasn't seen much new talent in recent years, Kevin Bluemel is a breath of fresh air to instrumental music.  His style incorporates catchy melodies, a striking array of instruments, and a virtuosic, breathtaking approach to the art of the piano which only heightens his appeal.

1987 - 1990 - The Beginning
“Born with a gift”

In the heart of the Rocky Mountains, in Salt Lake City, Utah, Kevin was born in 1987 to Alan and Laura Bluemel.  The third of five children, Kevin has two older sisters and two younger brothers.  Kevin began learning to play the piano by ear at the age of three.  It was clear to anyone at that time, even at such a young age, that Kevin was born with a gift.

1991 - 1996 - Piano Lessons
“30 minutes a day”

At the age of four, Kevin's parents enrolled him in piano lessons.  It was through the guidance and help of a kind, local neighborhood teacher that he learned to read music.

1997 - 2000 - Writing Music
“What is an artist that can’t compose?”

The age of ten was a defining time in Kevin's life.  It was during this year that his parents took him to a David Lanz concert, which would turn out to be a life changing event.  That evening, after seeing a nine-foot concert grand piano lit magically by a single spotlight, he chose to make music his career and never looked back. 

Kevin immediately began developing his ability to write music.  Countless hours were devoted to this passion, often rehearsing four to eight hours a day.  There was much experimentation, analyzing what makes a melody work and what characteristics are important in a song.

2000 - 2005 - Liszt Years
“Don’t learn songs, learn the piano”

Always drawn to extremes, in his late teenage years, Kevin discovered the great piano virtuoso Franz Liszt.  Realizing this was some of the most difficult music written for the piano, he worked tirelessly practicing and studying every nuance of Liszt's technique.  It was through this method that Kevin was able to really learn how to mold and shape the piano.

"When writing a new song, it's critical for me to be able to sit down and play every note, phrase and melody required," Kevin explains. "Even being able to play by ear doesn't mean my fingers automatically have the muscle memory and coordination needed to play everything I hear in my head.  That is where Liszt comes in."

2005 - 2009 - Recording
“If you can’t record it you have nothing”

After nearly a decade of musical trial and error developing his distinctive sound, Kevin knew it was time to record the songs that, up to this point, could only be heard if he himself played them. Realizing the cost of recording in a professional studio was prohibitive, Kevin began building his own private studio. It was during this period that he produced and released his first four albums:

Riviera (2005)

True Nature (2006)

Storm Front (2007)

Release (2007)

This was a very busy time for Kevin.  Endless hours were spent discovering ways to write and produce music, as well as learning the ins and outs of recording. This experience would serve him well in the future, making it possible for him to completely manage the entire production process from a song’s inception all the way to the final release.

2010 - Kevin Bluemel

In January 2010 at the age of twenty-two, Kevin Bluemel, Kevin's first professional album release debuted on iTunes.  This release received a warm welcome from newly discovered fans in many countries around the world.  "That was a key pivotal point," Kevin shares.  "After releasing Kevin Bluemel, I realized which direction I needed to go and what needed to change with the next album."

2011 - Present - Man with a Dream
“If the music is good enough…”

Kevin is currently in the studio working on his latest album.  Spending numerous hours on this current project, at a brand new level of recording quality, his devotion to this album is unlike anything he has done before.  On a quest for perfection, he is adamant about every detail of the process.  "I'm trying very hard to continue and improve the popular segment of the New Age genre,” he says.  "I take note of the lessons learned by the best artists in the genre's brief twenty year history, then I rewrite those rules to bring everything to a new level.  This album is the next step of that process."

Kevin's newest project is an album lauded with high anticipation.  From a fresh approach, exhilarating music, and a new sound design, this album will take the listener on a journey they are not soon to forget.
