Recently, a best friend and brother to me(we are closer than anything) Ryan Lagreco of Naperville, Illinois decided to show me some new songs he wrote on the guitar.
Intrigued, I turned on my mic and camera and recorded our music as I came up words, for our new songs, as I sang them. Feeling his chords and emotions.
We decided to stay with the “live” sound. as if you wish to here is perform on stage, you only know a small taste of how we would sound - up front and in person.
Ryan Lagreco is 32 and was raised in Brookfield, Illinois. He now is part of a new band “Altered Sensorium.” Which appears on some of my album covers.
He is a great part of this project so credit to him for these songs ever being created. Without his sweet friendship and inspiration, I would never have come up with this idea of song.
Ryan has many degrees in the Arts and Entertainment Field. Photography, Cinematagraphy, and Recording
He has been a great asset and Partner in this music venture and I could not do it without him.
Together, we worked on “freestyle” music writing meaning our songs would be recorded with different words and they would be written as they are recorded and played. Freestyle.
A fresh and exciting approach to the music industry.
In the future, we plan to add more talent as it becomes available.
What is “Feeling Winds” about? My debut album is about life. Lessons well learned. Going down a rocky road and never giving up, rather, getting stronger. It is about caring for each other. And never let one sink into despair.
It is also the story of my life. How I lived through terrible odds, but never learned to do anything but love. I starved and was beaten down but never hated.
It is expression. Full flowing love. “Open your eyes” “Everyone goes through terror, happy times, and bad times.” “We are all equal.”
As you play my music. Listen to the lyrics. Hear what I have to express to you. Poetic Melodic Masterpieces I am sure you will grow to love.
It is for me, you, and the world that I wrote these songs. To have faith in yourself and never give up.
Never forget who you are or be who you are not. You are beautiful as you are. That is what “Feeling winds” by my band, “Altered Sensorium” is about.
The Song “Tender Notions” was originally written as a romantic poem for singer he secretly admires.
Making it into a sweet love Ballard, “Tender Notions” was sweetly written for one Kevin shall always look up to for inspiration and plain sweet beauty.
“She’s got heart, originality, spunk, and overall music Genuis! (And she knows who she is).”
Melloncoli Daydreams was written for people who have endured a lot, but they never give up.
Kevin has since been out of the music career since his lead guitarist Ryan La Greco moved from the area and since, Kevin has been learning,on his own, chords and notes in order to save his frozen flow of music.
“My music career is never over. It is my life and I shall always breath fire into this Entity.” Claims Kappler
