Indie Funk R&B band, Kev Bev, was founded in 2014 by multi-instrumentalist front man, Kevin Collins. The Austin,TX collective released their sophomore studio album “Love Lemonade” in 2018 and celebrated with a second European tour. Kev Bev relates audiences with uptempo dance grooves, melodic vocals, and exciting live shows. Original music has influences from soul pop heroes like Sly and the Family Stone to more modern indie pop favorites like Arcade Fire. The bands shows are both nostalgic and refreshing to energizes audiences around the world.
Killer Whale is a musical outfit similar to a cold tasty beverage on a warm August afternoon. It can refresh your senses, rejuvenate your inner child, and still relax your muscles all at the same time. It’s something you might look forward to after a long and stressful day in this modern digital cloud.
Jeff “Horti” Hortillosa embodies an intriguing study in contrasts. The guitarist/singer/songwriter is raised by immigrant parents, yet he has gone onto to be a trailblazer in the modern Americana scene. He’s an academically-accredited intellectual, but he enjoys playful irreverence in his music. He’s best known for playing a wild strain of bluegrass with the Austin-based, award-winning band Whiskey Shivers, yet his solo releases are decidedly non-bluegrass centric.
Jeff’s solo music is best described by his unique “Horticulture” sensibility, and Horticulture is cultivated from bizarre jazz chords, passages of pastoral folk, raunchy roots-rock, buck-toothed Southern funk, and even strains of World music. His lyric writing brims with barbed wit, poetic flair, intriguing character development, an impressionistic narrative touch, and clever storytelling.View Map
