"Kev Gray: genius? Quite possibly. "
- Jonty Davies, Seek Japan
Kev Gray and The Gravy Train are an award-winning, multi-genre band based out of England, America and Japan - depending on the weather. Based around the lyrical songwriting of lead singer, Kev Gray, their music is a melting pot of lush melodies from acoustic lounge, folk gospel, bossa, funk, original blues and blue-eyed jazz. A fusion of traditional genres, resulting in an antidote to modern conformity. Soulful vocal textures add a nice polish to contemporary lyrical content that mirror everyday themes - cold feet at the altar, the rat race, having children, escaping responsibility, swingers parties, the inability to grow up.
Kev wants to bring music back to the people. Hence he is embracing every opportunity to perform, whether it’s alone on the street with a guitar or rocking a packed house with his eight piece band The Gravy Train. His most notable release was the album ‘Antidote.’ The band would go on to tour the world and earn critical support in Australia, Europe, and the USA.
During the Covid lockdown, Kev embraced the opportunity to reinvent himself as a recording artist and is finalizing a new lockdown-inspired album - Time To Live Again - using fellow musicians from over 30 countries recorded and arranged online by Thomas Hilse. Singles will build up to the album release in summer 2021. The new album will show an artist with the rare ability to transcend difficult conditions and creating truly moving music perfectly suited to the strange times we live in.
