There is something about Kevin McCluskey's voice that I just can't get out of my head. His tone and mood just strikes an unforgettable cord in me.

I think that of the many factors, the realism and sadness of Kevin's voice just seems to hit home somehow. I love it because it's just so true.

Once I got past the voice, I started to realize that not only was Kevin a powerful singer, but an amazing songwriter as well. The lyrics contained within the walls of this album (TRUST) are by far some of the most creative and true to heart that I've heard.

Kevin McCluskey may be one of the most impressive singer/songwriters that has crossed my path. If his passion induced vocals don't grab you, you'll definitely be swept away by his thought provoking and emotional lyrics. This one is a must have.
