Kevin Lee, a singer/songwriter from West River, MD, gained a passion for music at the age of 3 when his father set up a 1965 Slingerland drum kit in a spare room of their home. A drummer then until his twenties, Kevin ultimately took up the guitar and began singing & playing with various bands in his area. In 2020, amidst struggling to find & retain band members, Kevin decided to become a solo acoustic performer, plying his craft at different venues around the Southern Maryland & Annapolis area. Kevin’s repertoire spans a wide variety of songs, from the 1950s up to the present, fused with his own style of country, rock, and blues. Kevin has also written many original songs of his own. Currently, he’s promoting his first single, “ Carolina Bound”, which was released in May 2022 & is now available on all streaming platforms. Kevin is also set to record a 3 song EP in late September 2022 with producer Chance McCoy (formerly of Old Crow Medicine Show).

The Feehan Brothers, Brendan & Connor, hail from Haymarket, VA.  They started singing at an early age, performing in talent shows together throughout elementary school.  By middle school, Connor had picked up a guitar & learned how to play it from his father.  Brendan honed his vocal talents by singing at church (which he still does to this day).  By high school, Brendan & Connor began writing together & would hold weekly bonfires where they would play their new songs for friends.  Both played college football as place kickers, and they each had the chance to move to the next level until injuries stymied their gridiron goals.  But obstacles & setbacks to which others might’ve succumbed only motivated the brothers to keep pursuing their dreams, and Brendan & Connor love getting to share all of their emotions through song as a way to help others going through similar times.  From their initial amateur performances all the way to the VIP Stage at Jiffy Lube Live, The Feehan Brothers are chasing their dream every day with the help of family, friends, and fans.
