Meinl Cymbals is pleased to welcome Kevin Figueiredo to its family of cymbal artists. Residing in Montreal, Canada, Kevin has spent the last few years touring internationally with his brother in a band called 401. He and his brother recently disbanded the group and are putting together a new project.
In the meantime, Kevin has continued the online promotion of his drumming, a promotion that has garnered considerable attention world-wide. Kevin has been taking today's top of the charts pop, rap, and r&b songs and has been throwing down a rock feel behind them, with a lot of groove thrown in. The videos have been getting massive hits and websites such as Perez Hilton's and Ryan Seacrest's have been throwing up links to Kevin's work. Pretty cool.
In Canada, Kevin has earned youtube.com honors for the following -
#22 Most Subscribed All Time Musician
#23 Most Viewed (for the month of December) Musician
#79 Most Viewed All Time Musician
#100 Most Subscribed All Time Musician
...not bad at all!
