To try to pin down Sydney, Australia’s Kevin Tiah would be a futile exercise. A glance through his Facebook page and the initial guess might be that he’s a diehard metalhead with his leather vest, electric guitars in his cover photo, and the various shots he’s shared of him shredding.
Dig a little deeper, however, and you’ll find a very versatile musician who is striving to push himself to his own limits of songwriting by diversifying himself into several different music genres. He has also invited his fans to be a part of that process. He posts recording sessions in progress, shares videos of his experimentation into a wide variety of genres, and encourages feedback on all fronts.
He gained his most substantial experiences as the lead vocalist and guitarist of a post-hardcore/screamo band, performing at some of Sydney’s most prominent venues like The Metro, Factory Theatre and Oxford Art Factory. For his first official music video release as a solo artist, Kevin turned back the clock to a pop ballad that he began writing in high school but never completed. With his newfound sense of experimentation, Kevin has brought “Fight For You” back to life with a gorgeous new music video. In his own words, Kevin describes the video: “Cherish every moment with your loved ones and don’t wait for it to become a memory before you realize how valuable it was to you” Quite a mature message for an artist still in his formative years.
