2011 sees Kevin Kinsella heading in an exciting new direction. With the release of his third solo album “Great Design”, Kinsella expands his sonic palette with elements of acoustic rock and soul, while maintaining his roots in reggae. “Great Design” showcases his agility as a songwriter; Kinsella’s combination of styles is deeply evocative and accessibly upbeat, summoning the likes of Jack Johnson & Michael Franti. It’s “Thanks and Praise” music with wide commercial appeal.
From founding reggae heavyweights John Brown’s Body, to starting his own independent label, I-Town Records, to recording with the mysterious and prolific roots reggae outfit 10 Ft. Ganja Plant, Kevin Kinsella has flourished in establishing a contingent of talented young artists. Now it’s time for Kevin to focus his massive talents on his solo efforts. He has been busy over the last few years writing and recording songs for “Great Design” and is now ready to have you fall in love again with his timeless songwriting and memorable melodies.
We look forward to having Kevin tour continuously throughout 2011 and well beyond. He is already well known in jam band circles for extensive tours both as a solo artist and with John Browns Body, sharing the stage with such luminaries as Burning Spear, Toots and the Maytals, Gym Class Heroes and Michael Franti and Spearhead. Be on the lookout for Kevin, who will be touring in support of “Great Design”, starting with dates in April with jam band kings Giant Panda Guerilla Dub Squad.
