Being nearly two feet taller than all the guys his age was a BIG help in getting the attention of those around, whether he was on stage doing ex-tempo (the art of doing free-style calypso), standing in the front row tenor line of his school's steel-band side, or playing Herod the King in the church play.
Kevon Thomas began his life in music and drama as a tot in primary school and has emerged as one of the more inspirational Gospel music ministers to hail from the shores of Trinidad & Tobago.
Kevon has been involved in music in one way or the other for almost 30 years and has represented his country in youth music festivals in Scotland and Miami.
“Protector” is Kevon's solo debut album and he enlists an impressive cast of musical talents to assist him on this project. The Album is produced by Isaac Blackman of Love Circle fame for the JGN record label and features guest appearances by several top local gospel acts. Notable cameos include Gitta Dan on Precious, Marge Blackman-Mohamed who joins Kevon on “The River Of God” and Isaac Blackman and Koen Duncan who spice things up on “Army Of God”. Also doing great work on “Lord I'm Coming Home” is relative new-comer Reisha St. Hilaire.
Kevon has been actively involved in Jamoo music for almost four years. However, he is no newcomer to the music scene. He has been a member of the champion steel band WoodTrin Steel Orchestra and has also been the leader of The Arouca Youth Choral (AYC) and the Musical Director of Five Rivers Youth Choral.
The lead single off his album is the title track “Protector” and has received great reviews and generous airplay on several popular radio stations. The video can be seen on MTV's Tempo and really adds flavour to the Rise and Shine program.
The album consists 12 beautifully arranged and produced songs done in the Jamoo style, a style of music created by the Late Ras Shorty I, the man also credited as the inventor of Soca music.
Kevon is now ready to enter a new phase of his ministry. He is about to release a brand new track, his first in two years. "Choices" promises to be something very new and fresh. Listen out for it soon..!!
