Powering out of the coastline of Virginia Beach, Kevin MaC has stormed the music scene with his debut smash “#Winning.” Raised in King George, VA, MaC grew up playing bluegrass and cutting his teeth on legends like George Jones and Alan Jackson.
Right out of high school, Kevin was invited to bring his energetic and endearing personality to the airwaves at WFLS. His love of radio was trumped by his dreams of writing and playing music.
Driven by these dreams, MaC headed to college in Virginia Beach and immersed himself in the beach music culture.
MaC quickly grew as a writer, and his energetic live shows caught the eyes and ears of locals, visitors and radio programmers who took an interest in his diverse musical style. Soon he was invited to open for the likes of Kenny Chesney, Rascal Flatts and The Band Perry. He also drew introductions to the camps of Timbaland, Pharrell Williams and Teddy Riley who were always there to give him the tools to create his own genre-defying musical style.
MaC caught the attention of Dr. Luke on a bill with J-Cole, Ashanti and Juicy J – and signed a publishing deal with Luke’s Prescription Songs. He continued to tour across the country performing for an ever-growing fan base at festivals, theaters and colleges. In 2015, MaC crossed paths at another sold-out show with producer Keith Stegall (Zac Brown Band, Alan Jackson) who was drawn to MaC’s insight, storytelling, flair, talent and fresh direction. Stegall and MaC established a quick friendship and partnership as Stegall signed MaC to his brand new label, Dreamlined Entertainment.
MaC’s debut EP “Six Pack” is in production now, with the debut single “#Winning” out now and it’s Troy Gleason (Pharrell, Missy Elliot, Sam Hunt) directed video imminent.
