Kevin Killen is a Producer/Songwriter/Multi-instrumentalist who has called Philadelphia home base for the past 15 years. With a diverse skill set and uncanny ability to play many styles, Kevin has found himself working with some of the areas most talented writers and performers including Chris Kasper, Hezekiah Jones, Chris Bathgate, Ali Wadsworth, Tin Bird Choir and Psalmships. These days you might see Kevin playing drums with Mason Porter or guitar with Katie Frank but he always finds time for writing, recording and performing his own music and looks to expand on the this facet of his career with the Spring 2015 release of his first full length album “Under the Radar”.

“I’m not exactly sure when I first heard of him, but as I am a guy that is interested and active in Philadelphia’s folk and singer-songwriter scene, the likelihood of me encountering Kevin KIllen was pretty certain. Killen’s presence in our brotherly city runs deep, it seems as if he has his hands in everything; if he’s not playing in various bands, producing and recording albums (currently, he’s working with local rootsies Tin Bird Choir), then he’s out performing his own music in the area and the country. He’s a busy guy.”
