Listening to virtuoso pianists such as Frederic Chopin and Sergei Rachmaninoff greatly contributed to Kevin’s life long passion for composing and playing the piano. His love for film scoring and the talents of celebrated American composer, conductor, and pianist John Williams inspired several of Kula’s melodies. Although Kevin’s music harmoniously combines a Classical, New Age and Celtic influence, the greatest inspiration for him has been his devoted relationship with God and nature. Kevin resides peacefully in Cache Valley surrounded by scenic tranquility and the majestic mountains of Northern Utah. The spirit of this magnificent mountain range fuels his creative expression and has significantly influenced the creation of his Spirit of Utah album. Kevin expresses that his most satisfying moments are spent deep in the woods with the beauty and silence of nature, which evokes an inner peace in his heart and mind.
