Kevin Bull Doesn’t Want Any More Conformity

by The Alchemist

Kevin Bull is a 17-year-old musician in the northern Virginia area. He has been playing music since he was 9 years old on the upright bass in his elementary school orchestra. He has recently started playing in bands to continue growing. He claims that his biggest influences are Coldplay, Green Day, and Velvet Revolver. He has been a part of multiple bands, including, The Let Go, and his current band Trio 111. They are currently in the process of releasing their first record in the coming months.


He recently released a video for his song, “Conformity”. The song starts with a very intricate bass line to draw the listener in. It eventually evolves into an energy filled track that makes you want to get up and move. When asked about the song he says, “This song is about the how society wants to put people in certain categories without giving them a chance to prove themselves. I want to let people know that it doesn’t have to be this way and you can be your own person. Don’t let anyone stop and especially, don’t conform to anything.” Check out the track below.
