Kevin was first exposed to blues around the age of Twelve ,after hearing Harmonica player Gary Arnott from a Blues band Baby Isaac.
Kevin then Jammed with bands around Scotland, then formed KJ & The Shuffle kings in 2018.
Influenced by players such as Paul Lamb, Gary Arnott, Sonny Terry, William Clarke and Rod Piazza. Kevin was inspired to take up the harmonica after hearing these blues greats.
In 2012, he met Reece Hillis who he’d go on to perform with for many years as a duo, before eventually going on to form his own band the KJ Shuffle Kings.
Reece Hillis – Lead Vocals
Reece develeoped a taste for music early on after accidently stumbling upon the orginal pioneers of blues, soul, country and rock. soaking up as much as he could he began to write his own material where he would begin to blend his faviourite stylings of music, and eventually aged 17 would be out performing live in venues close and far from home.
While traveling across the UK he picked up a nomination for The British Blues Awards young artist of the year in 2014 and has since been featured in sought after magazines such as Blues Matters, all the while supporting acts ranging from Chris Farlowe to the Human Leauge. In late 2018 he was played twice on the Iain Anderson show on BBC Radio, and has been continuing to hone his craft with every performance and each song he writes.
