KEVDIDDY.COM – Where kids become the illustrator, singer, video producer, composer and artist.
~create their own comic book/ they become the illustrator
I was born in the San Fernando Valley of Los Angeles and I always had a fascination with extreme sports. I was a sponsored skateboarder in my twenties. Kevdiddy has been my skating nickname since back in the early 1990’s, and also, since I was always coming up with random little sing-a-long “diddys,” on the guitar, that name stuck.
I’m an organic gardener and I eat directly from my land for about 7 months of the year. There’s nothing better then eating fresh vegetables and fruit right from your own backyard.
Astronomy has always been a passion of mine and I moved to Hollywood and got a job at NASA as well as the Griffith Observatory in LA teaching astronomy to the public. I love signing songs about deep outer space…there’s so much to learn.
I’ve been playing Ultimate Frisbee since 1998 and it’s one of the things that’s keeping me feeling young, healthy and happy.
This pic of me is from a Portland Spring League tournament back in 2007, jumping for the disc.
I bought my first guitar when I was 20 because I and so many poems and journals and I felt they needed a melody behind them. I’ve always been a songwriter in various styles of bands but it wasn’t till 1997 when I started Kevdiddy music and came out with my first album, Kid’s in Space.
Well, it’s time I do something productive…I’m off to walk on my hands for a bit.
I look forward to singing to you soon.
