Kevin Pabon, born and raised in Long Island, New York first entered the music scene as part of a four person singing group. The group, which included former Bad Boy Records recording artist Donnie Klang, had written and produced their first studio album by the time Kevin was just 17 years old. After completing the album at Cove City Sound Studios in Long Island, the group toured the country performing for audiences ranging from Joe Jackson, Michael Jacksons father, at a private birthday event, to harmonizing for the National Anthem at an NBA playoff game and even radio station Z100's acclaimed annual Zootopia concert series. Shortly after the group disbanded Kevin found himself falling in love with the music production process and quickly began exploring his talents on the piano as well as with keyboard workstations and eventually various software recording programs.
Since his introduction to music production, Kevin has had the chance to share the studio with some amazing artists such as Nate Morris from Boyz II Men, Usher, MOP, Cuban Link, Havoc of Mobb Deep and Kymani Marley to name a few, as well as many extremely talented independent artists. Kevin's inspiration comes from the sheer appreciation of musical talents no matter the genre and includes everything from Motown, Funk, Jazz, Country, Pop and even Opera. Since being a part of a singing group he excels at vocal production and his love for musicality brings that old feeling into todays modern sound. "Music is a feeling. An emotion. My goal is to affect someones emotion in the way that I intended. To take them somewhere for a few minutes that's outside the world they're living in."
Kevin and Daniel joined forces in 2011 and have been working together ever since. Combining their skill sets, the duo has cultivated a unique sound, easily allowing them to stand out from the rest of the pack and turning all attention on them. They hope to promote a different blend sonically than what you're used to and evoke deep emotions within you that transport you into their world. The only problem? You might never want to leave.
