Raised on Oahu, Kevin Bong, aka ‘KBong’, is a multi-instrumental artist who is well known for his key role in the reggae band Stick Figure. This past Friday he released his second full length album ‘Smile With the World’.
The new album features Johnny Cosmic, Vana Liya, G-Love, Mihali, Beebs, Ray Zaragoza, and Man of the Forests.
KBong comments, “Music is an expression of ourselves; it’s an art form. Whether you’re playing for one person or a thousand, music soothes the soul.” Through his music, KBong hopes to inspire others to approach life with a positive mindset and maybe even pick up instruments themselves: “I encourage people to play music no matter what age! It’s never too late.”
In Bong’s music, you can hear a mix of catchy acoustic guitar riffs and surf vibes, as well as influences ranging from reggae to hip-hop. Regardless of the influences, once you hear his style you’ll be hooked because it’s fresh and pleasing to the ears. Listen to the full album “Smile With the World”
