Kevin Herchen is a Rhode Island Based musician and recent winner of The Rhode Show’s Big Break contest.
“As a child, I remember writing “gatar” as the number one item on my Christmas list and hanging it on the refrigerator.” Kevin Herchen was playing the guitar before he could even spell it and singing every television and radio jingle you could imagine. He entertained passing cars and neighborhood children by playing his nylon-stringed JC Penny guitar on his front door step.
During his time attending Rhode Island College, Herchen honed his song writing skills as a solo artist. He now enjoys performing at local venues and is currently finalizing a 10 track, solo, acoustic album. He looks to go as far as his music will take him. “Music is in my blood,” Herchen concludes, “I won’t stop until I can’t play anymore.”
