Bio

Kevin Ott's latest electronic rock/pop release, "Death, Be Not Proud," has received high marks among critics. Lins Honeyman of Cross Rhythms writes:

"Arguably at his best when in experimental mode, tracks like the ambient 'Midnight In Paris In The Rain' and a brave stab at adapting a rather heavy sonnet by 17th century English poet John Donne in the title track see Ott willing to take artistic chances whilst the incredible 'Hang Glider' - complete with Beatlesque loops and sound effects - has this talented artistic soaring in what is a hugely intriguing release."

Kevin earned his B.A. in Music Composition at the College of Creative Studies, University of California, Santa Barbara in 2003. Besides his work in Rock/Pop music, he has composed symphonies, chamber pieces, and solo works for a variety of instruments. While earning his degree at UC Santa Barbara, he also studied sound engineering under the legendary computer music guru Curtis Roads.
