ABOUT

Los Angeles based singer/ songwriter Keven Porter Jr is moving, meaningful, magical, and his original Pop/ R&B music is on fire. There is room for more than one king of Pop in the music realm. When asked why he is driven to create original emotive music, Keven says “it is due to an inner calling – desire to bring a voice to the downtrodden while encouraging hope.” Keven’s belief is that music has the power to “influence, uplift, and inspire” one’s being.

October 2009 Keven started penning his first theme and commercial record Darklight, released in 2011. In 2013 Eclipse was released followed by his 2015 release Take Me Away. Prior works entitled For All Times (2004), Revolution (2005), Black Knight (2006), Rewound (2007), & Endurance (2008), were mixtapes and a learning lesson – steps toward artist growth for Keven. Keven has since performed at Bar Lubitsch (West Hollywood, CA), The Crest (Los Angeles, CA.), Gate City Community Center (Pocatello, Idaho), House of Blues (Anaheim, CA), Chaparral Live Room (San Dimas, CA), Trip Club (Los Angeles, CA), Amplify- Club (Los Angeles, CA), Poway Center for the Performing Arts (San Diego, CA), The Bamboo Club (Lancaster, CA.), The Palmer Room (Los Angeles, CA), and the MGM Grand Convention Center (Las Vegas, NV). In 2018, he sang lead in the southern California band SoCal Soul. Keven Porter Jr is also an actor, writes novels, writes screenplays, dances, and produces.

In 2019 Porter began recording his next solo record, “Burn,” at Eagle Rock Studios in Los Angeles. 2020 the new record releases with Keven taking the stage at festivals and charity events.
