Hi, it's Kev Rowe. Thank you for stopping by!


First, let me tell you a little about myself. I am a touring singer-songwriter, have released 5 solo albums, and am the lead guitarist in a touring band called Big Leg Emma. My personal idols are guys like Paul Simon, Jerry Garcia, John Denver, Trey Anastasio, James Taylor, Jackson Browne, Jim Croce, Gordon Lightfoot, Cat Stevens, Neil Young, and Bob Dylan. If you like any of their music I definitely encourage you to check out all of my videos below and hopefully you hear those influences in my music.  

Second, I love internet marketing. I will do almost anything to be heard (the ads :) but I have a lot of fun with it. And my fans on the internet are amazing. Currently I have over 38K fans on Facebook and growing, and we have a lot of fun interacting and sharing all of our common musical interests.  It's an amazing time to be an independent musician and I feel very grateful to be a part of it.  I strongly believe that enjoying the process of marketing and advertising my cds and having fun doing it... is as important as making the music itself.  So that's what this page is all about... getting the music out there.


Basically the funds raised here will go towards on-line marketing and advertising campaigns that will help us find new fans and music lovers out here in the cyber universe.  Specifically, YouTube, Facebook, and Twitter Ad Campaigns are all methods that I use to find new fans.  And it's probably how I found you :)

What you can do... make a donation ! And help me get the music out there right now! In return you can get some exclusive CD Packages  here that include autographed cds, T-shirts, handwritten thank you letters from me and more...

Just go to the right hand column and near the top of the page you will see a big blue "Donate Now" button . Please click on that button and choose the reward package of your choice. It's super easy, safe, and fast and I will love you forever for doing it. We will be releasing my music to the world... together!

Again, thank you for stopping by and taking the time to check out my music.
