Because in life there is always a first time! Welcome to my crowdfunding campaign for my first EP (Mini-Album)!
For several years, I have been working to discover the artist that I am, to understand the ways that I must take to express my voice and above all, to share with you my emotions through my songs.
I was confronted with many experiences where I had the opportunity to have you at my side. You have supported me in my different projects as well as in the strength of my successes, which are today so many experiences that allow me to realize this new project.
The Voice UK - Performance :
I decided to embark on the development of an EP (Mini-Album) that will reflect the artist I am intrinsically. To accomplish this beautiful work, several musicians (pianist, violinists, cellists) will join me.
I joined an excellent British composer in order to exploit my voice through original and tailor-made compositions, but also in a style and writing that I particularly cherish.
This EP will be the best way for me to express my musical universe.
Wasting my young years - Kevin Prone (cover)
Thank you in advance for the major contribution that you will make to the realization of this project which is close to my heart!
Kevin Prone was born in September 1991 in Martinique.
Since childhood, his decisions are punctuated by his passion for the art of music.
At an audition to integrate a group of musical comedy in 2004, he was chosen to ensure the leading role of a lyrical work written and directed in order to report child abuse. Added to the success undoubtedly of benefit, it was a first experience of great value, enabling it to clarify its objectives and flourish.
His goal: to transmit his emotions and his world through his voice.
In 2010, Kevin left Martinique and moved to France. He wants to continue his studies and take opportunities that will allow him to create his place in the musical world.
Always seeking for new experiences, he enters the cast of the New Gospel Family group. By becoming a member there, he discovers the benefits of choral singing that allow him to share his passion and that teach him to be in tune with his universe; a world where the unveiling of the feelings and the free expression of the artist's heart opens a door toward his goal.
Always in search of more experience and evolution, Kevin leaves the Gospel group.
Endowed with a voice of countertenor, he decides to walk on the tracks of big names of the operatic kind and of his vocal range, such as Farinelli or, more recently, Philippe Jaroussky.
In 2014, the young countertenor travelled across several regions of France and Belgium to go in front of a public eager to discover the uniqueness of his vocal range. It is in a Baroque repertoire that Kevin has emerged and truly conquered the spectators.
He also had the great opportunity to lend his voice to the recording of the trailer of a short film. The film, titled « Verset Criminel », was selected in the Short Film Corner category of the 68th Festival de Cannes.
Living now in London, Kevin develops new projects more surprising than the others in the aim of exploiting his voice in a more contemporary way.
