Kevin Bowyer was born in Southend-on-Sea, England, in 1961. His teachers included Christopher Bowers-Broadbent, David Sanger and Virginia Black. Five international first prizes in organ playing (St Albans, Dublin, Paisley, Odense and Calgary) led to an early recording career, producing well over a hundred commercial CDs in the space of thirty years, including the complete organ works of J.S. Bach, Brahms and Alain. He also delved wholeheartedly into humorous and light music. As a concert player he garnered a reputation as a performer of complex, 'unplayable' works. His travels took him to many parts of the world.
Kevin has been organist at the University of Glasgow since 2005, where his duties include playing for many of the 150 annual weddings. He has four grown-up children and enjoys sleeping, reading and wide open spaces. These days Kevin considers himself partially retired and rarely plays concerts away from home. He retains his work as an examiner for ABRSM and devotes some time to writing fiction, an occupation dear to him since his youth.
