This weekend, Saturday November 3rd, the East Austin Community Fall Festival will take place at the George Washington Carver Library.  Come out and join the fun starting at 11:00am.  The Founder, Shametra McGregor, has enlisted a great musical talent Kevin Sandbloom. Ujima had the opportunity to discuss his music.  Check him out at the festival. This is what he had to say.
Ujima: Kevin, give our readers a little background about where you started your musical career.
Kevin: I started in high school in Altadena, CA. I was blessed to be
surrounded by a bunch of other kids who were into music and self-taught musicians.
My first band was at 16 and I was writing songs and leading my own
band about a year after. I just kept writing songs and developing my craft
until I was able to make money at it.
Ujima: You have been busy producing your album and touring. What is your inspiration?
Kevin: Right now my inspiration is my daughter. She’s very inspired by
music and I want to be an example to her. I’m always writing and have
a bunch of projects I’m excited about completing in the next year.
Ujima: What should attendee’s at the East Austin Community Festival expect as they listen to your music?

 

Kevin: I’ve been working on a lot of new material…trying to play
a mix of some older favorites and the new stuff. I’ll be playing a few
songs from my latest project, “form.idable”. I will be performing
with a loop pedal this time out so, beatboxing, guitar and vocals.
Donate a can good to the Food Bank and enjoy vendors, food and music. We will see you Saturday! Make sure you catch Kevin Sandblooms set- it will be awesome.
