Good Day Noir Family,
our “E.A.Poets Approved/Bands We Like” section is dedicated to Kevin Atwater. I discovered this Artist while shuffling songs on Spotify and I liked the uniqueness of his music.
I must say that this artist impressed me a lot.
His compositional style is really interesting, not at all banal and obvious. In some moments his eclecticism reminded me of artists like Beck.
The melodic lines are sinuous and refined and manage to entertain the listener from the first to the last second.
The new Ep Retriever is an Opera to listen to more than once in order to understand all the nuances and the maniacal attention that Kevin Atwater puts into every little detail.
I liked all the songs proposed, a very coherent artistic work. This artist has found his music and offers it to the world in a courageous and convincing way.
An artist to keep under the radar for sure.
Retriever is Kevin Atwater’s Ep Out Now!
Refined and Innovative!
Kevin Atwater is a singer/songwriter and actor based in New York City. Kevin knew from a young age that music would be a highly influential factor in his life, and he surrounded himself with it as much as possible. He took classical piano and clarinet lessons, taught himself guitar, and got involved in musical theatre. Recently Kevin has become a notable TikTok creator, known for his comedic videos and quirky sense of humor. In only a few months, he has quickly amassed over 1 million followers. Kevin’s influences range from his folk idols (Joni Mitchell, Nick Drake, Adrianne Lenker, Angel Olsen) to contemporary singer-songwriters (Clairo, Moses Sumney, Phoebe Bridgers, Conan Gray). He leans toward intimate and specific songwriting. The music that Kevin makes challenges ideas of traditional masculinity, and he makes no attempts at hiding his sexuality in his lyrics. Kevin writes queer music with no hesitation or shame.
