Kevin Jones is a 19-year-old indie rock artist and producer from Indianapolis with a uniquely charming catalogue of music, from the melodically driven ‘Limelight’ EP to his newest single ‘Barista Girl’. His classic yet eclectic songwriting style has gained acclaim from the indie community and beyond. His contagious melodies and classic pop sensibilities make for a fresh, youthful take on the mesmeric sounds of the 60s & 70s. All while in tune with the jazz-infused footsteps of Mac DeMarco and boy pablo.

Kevin won the 2018 Song Academy UK Songwriting Contest (International division), with his song 'Clara', from the 'Simpler Times' EP. In 2018 & 19 he opened for Tom Odell in Los Angeles and Chicago respectively for his ‘Jubilee Road’ tour.

Kevin is currently based in Indianapolis, and is working out of his studio in Fishers, IN “Studio 113”.

Lyrics:

I haven’t dreamt of her For a long, long time I used to think of her During all my nights But where would we be If she stayed there with me Guess I’ll never know It’s easy to see That we weren’t meant to be that’s just how it goes I used to take her out For a lazy drive Turn the radio on loud Leave it all behind (chorus) She is better off alone Than she is with me I’ll be waiting by the phone If she ever needs

Simpler Times Simpler Times EP

Lyrics:

Watching the sun go down far as my mind can tell I’m still a fool in love with her Watching the years go by now I’m left asking why everything changed before my eyes though I’m still young, they were simpler times I miss all the fun, of hanging out offline thinking of all we’d do long as the sky was blue seems like I’d never see it now guess it’s nostalgia though you can’t stop the world, you know wish I could turn my head around though I’m still young, they were simpler times I miss all the fun, of hanging out offline though I’m still young, they were simpler times I miss all the fun, of hanging out offline

Lyrics:

We try to see what's in our future What will I look like in five years Will I have a car, will I have a job Or will I still be stuck right here And where will I be, when I'm twenty three will I have someone to hold? Do I need, to think about, something so far down the road It seems to me, that I'm just waiting, the time is fading, it's overflowing, where am I going? Woah oh oh oh oh, woah oh oh A change is coming faster than we know Woah oh oh oh oh, woah oh oh Please don't forget me, when it's time to go I'll buy us seats, out to the west coast We'll fly across the country sky And when we arrive, we'll feel so alive And you'll be right there, by my side And where will I be, when I'm twenty three will I have someone to hold? Do I need, to think about, something so far down the road It seems to me, that I'm just waiting, the time is fading, it's overflowing, where am I going? Woah oh oh oh oh, woah oh oh A change is coming faster than we know Woah oh oh oh oh, woah oh oh Please don't forget me, when it's time to go (2x) We watch the time, it's flying by What are we waiting for? There's nothing holding us behind What are we waiting for? The ocean roars upon the shoreline I have few worries in my head But are dreams a lie, if so, what am I? It's time to get up, out of bed Woah oh oh oh oh, woah oh oh A change is coming faster than we know Woah oh oh oh oh, woah oh oh Please don't forget me, when it's time to go

Lyrics:

i thought she, was the one til she broke my heart in two now i don’t know what to do it’s quite sad, but i can’t let it get the best of me cause it’s not a tragedy But now I know, there ain’t much time to go before my heart forgets, I always forget how it ends I’ve got to get you off my mind but what’s the point, i’ll see you everyday online I’ve got to try and let her go but how am I supposed to if she’s on my phone Every time, I go out I see her face up in the clouds I can’t get away somehow Then when I, turn around well I hear someone call her name but she’s nowhere to be seen And now I know, there ain’t much time to go before my heart forgets, I always forget how it ends I’ve got to get you off my mind but what’s the point, i’ll see you everyday online I’ve got to try and let her go but how am I supposed to if she’s on my phone why, is it so that you’re here but i think i’m alone where, has it gone when we talked in the backyard so long

Limelight Limelight

Lyrics:

late in the night a band is playin’ tunes the crowd passing by it looks they’ve got the blues the boy on the stage they treat him like a friend but he knows anyway it’s just to pay his rent and in the evening when he’s done for the night his love is out of sight limelight, limelight well, boy you better swallow your pride cause if you really want her to stay than maybe you should treat her another way limelight, limelight just tryna drown it out with a little wine but nothing’s gonna take it away i wonder what you’re hiding beneath those shades after awhile of singin’ all those songs he tried to make them smile but something felt so wrong the stage lights in his eyes and lyrics on his tongue i wonder when he’ll find it’s been him all along and in the evening when he’s done for the night his love is out of sight

Clara tears the sheets off in the morning Feels like she’s barely slept in days Wonders if the rain will keep from pouring Nothing seems to let her catch a break Clara, she has the sun in her eyes Clara, having the time of her life Clara Clara’s been so lonely in her daydream Wishing she could find herself a man Never thought she’d fall in love so easy Hiding all her teardrops in the sand Clara, she has the sun in her eyes Clara, having the time of her life Clara Clara, she has the sun in her eyes Clara, having the time of her life Clara

Try to hold your hand But it seems That I'm too late now To show That I'm sorry, to you Ride in the car Looking out Of the window, wondering Does she love me anymore Please tell me slowly I need to know Do you really love me Turn off the radio Give me one more chance, darling I know I did you wrong Give me one last chance, darling I don't deserve your love It wouldn't matter If, I fell in love a thousand times Please tell me Do you love me, like I love you anymore Please tell me slowly I need to know Do you really love me Turn off the radio Give me one more chance, darling I know I did you wrong Give me one last chance, darling I don't deserve your love It wouldn't matter If, I fell in love a thousand times Please tell me Do you love me, like I love you anymore Do you love me, like I love you anymore

Lyrics:

She sang me a tune I played her a song wonder why it's been so long I gave her my coat We walked through the rain Why don't we just run away? I can see the stars They shine so bright Let's go you and me For one last time I know all the things That you said to me I miss all the games that we used to play Before the clouds would turn to gray Remember the nights When I would come by We gazed at stars up in the sky

Lyrics:

Waiting by the fireplace Holding hands, I feel her gentle face She smiles, I smile back I hope this moment will forever last I will keep you warm I will keep you warm I can feel your heart begin To forget the scars that lied within I can see your perfect eyes Glimmering because we are alive I will keep you warm I will keep you warm I will keep you warm (Chorus 4x) And without you, I feel so far away Without you, I don't know what to say Without you, You got me on my knees Cause you are all I need I will keep you warm I will keep you warm I will keep you warm
