The Evolution of a One-Man-Band
Kevin began using his feet about 5 years ago, with bulky parts from a small drum kit that he modified to fit his simple percussion needs. He later found Farmer Foot Drums online, and got a pair of their downbeat pedals that he used with an old suitcase. Tinkering and modulating the downbeats, Kevin formed a relationship with Farmer Foot Drums owners. After 4 years touring with his interesting, one-man show, Kevin ordered his custom made Farmer FootDrum Kit! He plays a nine pedal acoustic drum kit while playing guitar and singing. Everything Kevin plays is live, no looping. Kevin might be the only active touring musician in Canada that uses the Farmer Foot Drum
