As a performer, Kevin Scott Hall started working in theatre and cabaret as soon as he moved to New York in 1985. He had his first solo show at Panache Encore in 1986, and appeared in several Off-Off Broadway and regional productions. He continued to perform steadily in cabaret clubs in New York, Boston, and Philadelphia until 2004. During that time, he released three recordings, including his pop debut, "New Light Dawning" (1998, Cascade Records), which received radio airplay across the nation. Kevin worked at the legendary piano bar Rose’s Turn until it closed in 2007, and is a frequent soloist with the Middle Church Jerriese Johnson Gospel Choir. He has taught cabaret workshops since 1995 and has directed dozens of cabaret shows.
Having earned his MFA in Creative Writing at the City College of New York, Kevin continues to lecture at two City University campuses, teaching writing, speech and literature. He published his first novel, "Off the Charts!" (iUniverse) in 2010, a satire and coming-of-age novel about the music business. Since 2008, he has written dozens of artist profiles and features for Edge Media Network, including his monthly column “Kevin on Kabaret,” and he writes reviews for BistroAwards.com.
