Kevin Scholl

I've been a gigging musician since the fall of 1976. I'm a multi-instrumentalist, equally proficient at rhythm and lead guitar, drums, and keyboards. I switched to bass when my band was in desperate need of somebody to take on the role, and it was with the electric bass guitar that I found my niche, especially when it came to playing and singing live.  First and foremost, however, I am a singer/songwriter and I feel at home with an acoustic guitar in my hands.  Writing is my wheelhouse and my strength as a musician.  I enjoy the recording process and never tire of performing live.
