Scroll down and check out the fresh new release "Let's Take The World!" Kevin met industry legend Michael Maska, longtime manager of Joe Jackson. A lifelong admirer of such vocal icons as Frank Sinatra, Ella Fitzgerald and Mel Torme, Maska was immediately taken with Kevin’s talent and devotion to his craft. The veteran manager helped open doors for the young artist, introducing him to a world of new musical collaborators, many of whom became contributors to TITLE TK. After recording “Nightlife” and “I Can’t Make You Love Me” in New York with Phil Ramone and a studio band comprised of some notable veteran jazz players, Ahart journeyed to London, where he cut the remainder of TITLE TK with Tim Ross and some of Britain’s leading young jazz musicians, as well as Jeff Franzel on piano and organ. “I was so nervous about the prospect of working with Phil Ramone and singing with Jane Monheit and these heavy, heavy jazz players, but it turned out to be a great experience, and they were all so inspiring to work with,” Kevin notes. “Getting validation from people like that was a major confidence-builder for me. But it also said to me, ‘OK, now you’ve really got to prove yourself.’” “Working in London with Tim Ross was also an amazing experience,” he continues. “It was just so inspiring to go over there and hear these songs that I’d written be turned into actual productions with a big band and strings, and I’m overjoyed at the way the tracks turned out.” The resulting album offers a compelling evocation of Kevin Ahart’s iconoclastic musical philosophy. “I don’t really care about what’s considered pop today,” he states. “I know what’s right for me, and I have definite ideas of how I want to achieve that. I’ve got songs on here that I feel like I’ll be singing for the rest of my life, and I can honestly get behind every song on this album and say ‘This is me, take it or leave it.’ “I definitely do feel a responsibility to the tradition that originally inspired me to sing,” Kevin concludes. “I’m interested in adding something to that tradition. And if I can come up with just one song that can stand next to songs by Irving Berlin or Cole Porter, then I’ll feel like I’ve really achieved something.”
