Session Guitarist, Arranger

Kevin Herron on SoundBetter

My passion is recording guitar for original artists, I love bringing their ideas to life and providing my own ideas to take their songs to the next level. I have honed my skills over the last few years as a session guitarist both on tour and in the studio with artists such as Tiz McNamara, Little Hours, Rowan, Stephanie Rainey and many more.

Kevin is a guitarist, composer, recording artist and mutli-instrumentalist hailing from the north west coast of Ireland, Co. Donegal. He had his first guitar lesson at the age of eight and along with guitar, went on to become proficient at both drums and piano. Honing his skills throughout his teenage years in the local music scene, Kevin went on to study music at third level. After finishing his B.A Honours degree in Music and History in University College Cork, Kevin subsequently undertook a Masters in Music Performance.

Kevin's musical interest spans many genres, which in turn has made him an extremely versatile and sought after player, covering styles such as Pop, Rock Jazz, Blues, Bluegrass, Folk, Country and Traditional Irish music. He became involved with a number of established and up and coming artists both within Ireland and abroad. Kevin is currently the live guitarist for Irish acts Little Hours, Clare Sands, Stephanie Rainey and Tiz McNamara as well as guitarist for Cork based band Rowan, of which he is a member. Along with his live performance career, Kevin is also an experienced studio guitarist and composer, constantly exploring ways to create music through the guitar.
