A Kevin worth hearing

Kevin Blechdom was born Kristin Erickson in Florida in 1978.

And yes, she is a she – despite the Kevin appellation. And no, she is not as politician. Kevin Blechdom’s third solo album, Gentlemania, is newly released and is less schizophrenic and madcap manic than her previous two electronic albums. (Which were.) On this album she slows down; takes a deep breath.

Combining a strong background in classical and experimental music with a broad knowledge of songwriting traditions, Kevin’s music travels between country jangle, Broadway show tunes and old-school R&B. Her first two solo albums were written and produced in Berlin. They are a mishmash of styles and production techniques. From Broadway musical to rock opera to electro-smudge, her earlier work was pop music for the attention span deficit generation. Now she’s moving on.

She’s an innovator in her chosen fields and her gig is an opportunity to experience something different in good ol’ Lismore.

For her gig at the Tatts Hotel in Lismore next Wednesday, December 9, she’s touring in a hi-tech country and ragtime duo format with Christopher Fleeger. The duo is called Barnwave.

The gig starts at 7.30pm and $10 gets you into the frenzied musical fun.
