Kevin Karrick is dedicated guitarist, educated on multiple instruments and music theory in his youth. With experience in rock, blues, jazz and some classical, his musical approach is a unification of all of the above, and revealed in his performances as a solo guitarist and band leader, and in his teaching.
After settling on guitar as a life long endeavor, Kevin went on to study music theory, composition, and electronics technology in college, and later has taken workshops with a number of acclaimed guitarists. He has transcribed music from 30s and 40s swing, the folk and rock of the 50s and 60s, and 70s dance to current day pop music. Kevin has also composed a number of contemporary jazz and acoustic guitar pieces.
Kevin is in the Portland, OR area now, teaches privately, performs solo and with his live projects, frequents the local jazz scene, and occasionally performs with the Tom Grant band.
