Kevin Kinney, known professionally as Kevn Kinney (born March 12 1961),[1] is an American vocalist and guitarist, best known as the lead singer and guitarist of the Southern rock band Drivin N Cryin. A native of Milwaukee, Wisconsin, Kinney formed Drivin N Cryin with bassist Tim Nielsen and drummer Paul Lenz after moving to Atlanta, Georgia in 1985. Kinney and his bandmates remained a part of the Atlanta underground rock scene until the album Fly Me Courageous, and its hit single title track, brought them to a national audience on mainstream rock radio. A prolific songwriter, collaborator, and performer, Kinney has been noted for his numerous side projects throughout his career, all the while keeping Drivin N Cryin an active band. As a solo artist, he produced the 1990 folk rock album MacDougal Blues with members of R.E.M., and the 2000 album The Flower & the Knife with various members of the jam band scene, including Warren Haynes and John Popper. Starting in 2002, he formed the project "Sun Tangled Angel Revival" (S.T.A.R.) to release Americana and roots rock music. The most recent Drivin N Cryin album The Great American Bubble Factory, was released in 2009. In 2012, he released an album with The Golden Palominos, a long standing musical collaborative project headed up by Anton Fier. Also in 2012, Drivin N Cryin started releasing a series of themed EPs, beginning with Songs from the Laundromat.
