Kevin has composed many beloved songs for worship, including “One Spirit, One Church,” “One Love Released,” “See Amid the Winter’s Snow,” “All Good Gifts” and “Signed by Ashes.” After several early solo albums—The Vineyard of the Lord, Chosen by God and See Amid the Winter’s Snow—he produced two collaborative collections with Gael Berberick and Barney Walker: Through the Eyes of Faith and For Your Glory Reigns. Shine in Me is a collection of hymns and songs for the church year, with texts by Kate Bluett and musical settings by Kevin. His most recent collection is The King Of Love, a captivating collection offering 10 instrumental arrangements of beloved hymns and songs.
