For many musicians the live concert is the pinnacle of their artistry. What happens when you suddenly take it away? A story of adaptation and what really matters with Kevin “KBong’ Bong. Kevin Bong, aka “KBong”, is a multi-instrumental artist known for his “key” role in reggae band Stick Figure. Touring with the group since 2012, KBong has solidified his place as one of the top keyboard players in today’s current Reggae scene.
Through his music, KBong hopes to inspire others to approach life with a positive mindset and maybe even pick up an instrument themselves. KBong’s debut solo album ‘Hopes and Dreams’ released in 2014 and features the standout track Livin Easy, which has amassed over 2 million streams. KBong’s music presents an atmosphere of catchy acoustic guitar riffs, easy-going vocal melodies, as well as influences ranging from reggae to hip hop. As KBong says, “Music is an expression of ourselves; it’s an art form. Whether you’re playing for one person or a thousand, music soothes the soul.” This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community.
