Basic Information
Other names
Kevin Bayliss
Kev is now a Singer & Songwriter following a long career in the Video game industry for Rare Ltd. / Nintendo / Microsoft. 

As a Graphic Designer, Kev was responsible for designing and animating a huge number of characters for titles such as Battletoads, Killer Instinct, and Diddy Kong Racing to name but a few. He was even responsible for re-designing  the Donkey Kong character for the multi million selling 'Donkey Kong Country' in 1994 and also became Graphics Director a number of years before eventually leaving Rare in 2005. 

Since that time he's been pursuing his other love of music, and has written and recorded songs with a number of Rock / Metal bands, receiving great press in some leading magazines in the UK, the USA, Europe and even as far out as Japan!

"And in singer Kev Bayliss, they might have unearthed a real star!"
- Metal Hammer 2010

In 2011 he released a Rock album entitled 'The Project' which he put together with a group of talented guys from the UK & America which received fantastic reviews on the unsigned scene.

However, with a love for all genres, Kev changed direction in 2012 to begin working on Dance music, with some well known producers and DJ's in Europe. Right now he is working on some new and exciting projects that are making their way into the mainstream. The change in direction has been a fantastic move, as it has already brought in some amazing opportunities for the future!
