MuchMusic.com: When you first went in the studio, were you confident or like, "I can't believe I'm doing this!"
Kevin: I was nervous, you know. It was definitely a learning experience. I had been in and out of the studio, and everytime I was in I was nervous. When I first started working on the album, the first week or two was tough. You know, it was tough. It's like anything you do - the more you keep at it, the more you do it, the more time you have in the studio to really perfect your voice, your projection, how you want to say things and what you want to say, where the music takes you - it's crazy.
MuchMusic.com: So by the end you were like (brushing dirt off shoulder), "okay!"
Kevin: That's right!
MuchMusic.com: When releasing a debut album, is having a pre-determined reputatation like having a good golf handicap or a bad golf handicap? I don't know much about golf so that might not make sense at all.
Kevin: You know, it could go either way. It depends on the people, cause a lot of people can say whatever they want but it really depends on if the people are interested, then they're gonna go pick it up.
MuchMusic.com: Well, you're doing some serious promo.
Kevin: Yeah, I mean that's a definite, you know. Pushing it as hard as I possibly can, cause I believe in it. The album is hot. Have you heard it?
MuchMusic.com: Not yet. But I listened to everything on MySpace.
Kevin: Oh. See? You have to go pick it uuuuuuup.
MuchMusic.com: we know things that make you happy - music, your family, interacting with fans - but what's something we don't know that makes you truly happy?
Kevin: I like driving around in my cars, I like going on trips. Stuff like that. I like deep sea fishing, that's probably one of my favourites, even though I don't get to do it too much. I love golfing too, every now and then. But you know, mostly spending time with my family is my happiest moments.
MuchMusic.com: You've got a lot of sneakers, so how many times do you actually wear a pair?
Kevin: There's some that I don't wear at all. There's some that I thought I'd only wear once but then I'd end up wearing them all week. It varies. Sometimes I'll grab a shoe and I could base 20 outfits off of it, well then I'll wear that shoe all the time.
MuchMusic.com: You've said that LA is a gossip town and that you don't meet real people. What do you mean by that?
Kevin: Well, I mean that the business out there is a backstabbing, cut-throat business. That's what I mean. You see shady people. you see people that their intentions you can tell right off the bat aren't what they should be.
