The driving rhythms that can be heard on Eclipse recordings and in their live show are almost exclusively produced by Kevin Jones; and no, we don’t know how he is able to do it. Not surprisingly vocal percussion is only one dimension of this human drum set. Kevin is also an accomplished singer/performer and dancer and has an impressive musical theatre resume under his belt.
After completing his Associates Degree at Snow College, as well as a two-year mission to Bangkok, Thailand, he transferred to USU where he changed his course of study from musical theatre to broadcast journalism. He couldn’t get rid of the performing bug, however, and ended up joining the New Horizons show choir and dance troupe, where he functioned as both a performer and a choreographer-which then led to a scholarship with the Department of Programs and Entertainment. After graduating with a BA in journalism, and spending a few years dedicating his time to Eclipse, Kevin went back to school and earned his Masters degree from Utah State University in Instructional Technology.
Kevin grew up in Taylorsville, UT, which seems appropriate considering his middle name is Taylor. When he’s not spitting rhythmically into a microphone, Kevin manages a media production team, provides service to the youth in his community, and spends as much time as he can throwing a ball, reading books, and working in his yard and garden with his wife and four kids. If there is any time left after that, Kevin enjoys mountain biking, snowboarding, and a good game of racquetball.
