Kevin Davy White
Kevin Davy White has a very distinctive voice and style.
Mentored by Nicole Scherzinger, on X Factor UK 2017, Kevin was to win through each week to be the final competitor in the 'Overs' category and stormed on to finish an incredible 3rd place in the Finals.
His performance with Tokio Myers was truly superb, it brought the house down.
Kevin also sang a stunning song for the Live shows 'Week 2 Prize Fight', X Factor's TV Prize Battle feature, pitched against the group Rak-Su.
This was a public vote and Kevin won!
As Simon Cowell said "It's a once in a lifetime Prize" and indeed that's what it is, as the USA now beckons.
This coming end of August sees Kevin flying to Los Angeles to meet with world-famous record producer and writer Savan Kotecha for this special prize.
Starting his music career in a band called The JFK’s, Kevin put his multiple musical talents to good use, where he wrote and produced the band's own songs. Kevin is a multi-faceted musical machine, he writes, produces, sings, plays guitar, keys and the drums.
Back in 2015, Kevin started to make waves in the UK, in addition to continuing his success back in his hometown of Paris. He was selected to open for various artists including Martin Barre (long-term guitarist for a legendary rock band, Jethro Tull), Keziah Jones (Funk artist) and Ana Popovic (Blues guitarist from Serbia). He was then hand-picked to collaborate with Ashley Iona on her song ‘Taking Me Under’. Following this, he released his own debut EP, ‘Mr. Feeling’, which really showed off his range of skills and channelled his love of multiple genres. Blues and soul run through his blood, whilst rock and funk have a special place in his heart.
In 2016, Kevin’s success only continued to grow when he won the highly acclaimed Festival Generation Reservoir in France and Archer Streets Got Talent in London. Later that year, Kevin featured on The Voice France before moving to London and deciding to apply for The X Factor UK 2017.
This is where Kevin meets the UK, by winning the hearts of the nation, from his heart-wrenching rendition of Whitney Houston’s, ‘I Will Always Love You’, to his passionate performance of Jimi Hendrix’s, ‘Voodoo Child’ (where he really got to show off his guitar skills.) Kevin also performed one of his own songs, ‘Puzzle of Love’, which won him a place in the live tv shows.
Following on from the X-Factor TV weekly performances, Kevin performed on the super Nationwide X Factor live tour, which he relished, followed by his own shows up and down the country.
At the moment he is just finishing co-writing and recording his exciting new music tracks, already collaborating with highly established producers such as Steve Booker, (John Newman) and Matthew Marston, (Emeli Sande) also Alan Glass, (Aretha Franklin, Kenny G, Mis-Teeq, Lighthouse Family), alongside of course The Savan Kotecha, (One Direction, Usher, Ariana Grande) at West Hollywood Studios this August in L.A.
Kevin now has some super songs in his new EP "ELEMENT" released the 15 November 2019.
With his warming personality, exceptional music abilities and a passion for great songs, Kevin really is the whole package.
