ABOUT ME

My name is Kevin Coem, and I'm a self-taught singer-songwriter, music producer, composer and lyricist from Spain. I was born on April 29 in Valencia (Spain), and I spent most of my childhood using audio edition software. It almost seemed like a game, but I eventually got better at it and I started composing my own songs when I was around 18.

I learned English and Japanese by myself, and after studying more about music theory, composition and different music genres, I entered an audition for the Japanese TV show "J-MELO" on NHK World, which I passed, by the way! Teaming up with singer Ai Takekawa and guitarist Marty Friedman, we created a song called "The only star" as a music project for that show.

I started releasing my own songs in Japanese under a different stage name in 2012, and I lived lots of amazing experiences thanks to that music career, such as being interviewed in radio and TV, taking part in cultural and charity events, and performing live concerts in both Spain and Japan. I even held my own live tour in Japan... 2 years in a row! I also got public support from many Japanese artists, like May J., who hosts the show I passed an audition for, Nana Tanimura, Miho Fukuhara, Kikuchi Kazuhito, etc.

 

But in 2015 I thought it was the right time to look for a change and improve as an artist, so I stopped my music activities in Japan, took some time off, and decided I would start over. So I changed my stage name, I stopped using my $4 microphone in favor of brand new professional equipment... And here I am, starting over!
