Kevin's musical journey began as a child in elementary school under the tutelage of Mr. Thomas Greene playing the trumpet; closely following the steps of his older sister Carla Johnson and late uncle Rory Johnson, former musical ally to the late Kim Massie.

As Kevin matriculated through his primary and secondary education, many great instructors such as Mr. Thomas Moore (Normandy Middle), Mr. Robert Edwards (Normandy High) and Lisa Gage (Fundisha Enterprises) provided Kevin with a wide variety of experiences and skills in the arts of jazz, African drumming & dance, and marching band.

Kevin would go on to bring pride to his city by joining the pride of Saint Louis Harris-Stowe State University Marching Hornets.

Today Kevin lends his musical talents by way of baritone to the Saint Boogie Brass Band -Boogie Bandits!
