Timo Kevin drops debut album

No crazy marketing strategies, he just wants people to genuinely accept his sound.

20 September 2019 | Art and Entertainment

It is quite a spectacle to witness a unique artist popping up on the music scene and remaining true to themselves until their presence is hard to ignore. One such artist is most definitely Timo Kevin, who seems to have just sprung up out of nowhere with his art.

The young artist's quality in his music is very impressive and his first album Art of a Loner can contend with any established body of work. tjil prides itself in shining a spotlight on emerging artists, so we took some time off to converse with Timo Kevin about his new album.

In our conversation, Timo Kevin describes Art of a Loner as a reflection of who he was, and what he is now. He added that it shows confidence, being able to stand alone on his own and being able to look past all that has happened. It took him five months to finish the whole project; all songs were arranged and produced by himself. “I worked with two upcoming vocalists Waters and Ray Tiller on this album.

“There are nine songs on the album. Two songs with vocals on it, one interlude and the rest are instrumentals. I didn't want to put voices on them because I believe the melodies will speak on behalf of the voices,” said Kevin.

On the rollout plan of the album, Kevin shared that unfortunately there will be no album launch but the album is available on different online music stores. “We will only have CDs on order for collectors. We also have the album out for free on SoundCloud and YouTube and I can assure you sales are not the objective, I just want people to embrace and accept my sound,” he said.

He describes his sound as Namibian and very much his own, stating that it is deep, soulful, groovy and can control one's soul. “It is different from what is on offer in our country at the moment. I must admit my sound has improved on this project. One can never stop learning and that is why I always learn from other DJs and producers and mostly from YouTube tutorials,” he said.
