From Wikipedia, the free Encyclopedia

Kevin Johansen was born in Fairbanks, Alaska in 1964 to an Argentine mother and an American father, lived most of his childhood in the San Francisco Bay Area, but moved with his family to Buenos Aires at the age of 12.

Kevin made a brief appearance in the local rock scene with the band Instrucción Cívica in the 80s (only album Obediencia Debida in 1985), but went to New York in 1990. There he met and married his Argentine wife, with whom he has a daughter. He played in the CBGB's club for long years, until he created the group The Nada, and in 2000 recorded the album with the same name, a mix of different latin sounds with modern pop, funk and rock.

In the same year, and with the new album in his hands, he returned to Argentina, where he currently lives. The album, released by Los Años Luz, had a relatively success and Kevin and the group started concerts that took them and their album, as far as Spain (album edited there by K Industrias).

At the end of 2002 Johansen recorded Sur o no Sur, also released by Los Años Luz in Argentina and by Sony Music in the rest of the world. Again, Kevin surprises with a combination of latin music, pop, and humour.

During 2003, Kevin became a big success in Argentina, playing in June at the Gran Rex Theatre, the largest in Buenos Aires. Again in Spain, he promoted his new album with concerts in Madrid and Barcelona, this time with bigger audiences. He also acted during the MTV Latino awards, form where he continued a concerts tour to Miami, New York, Chicago, Los Angeles and San Francisco prior to the release of the album in USA.

In 2004 he continues with concerts in Mexico, Chile, Belgium and again Spain (now in many different cities) with an even bigger response from the people and the media. At the Latino Grammy Awards, Sur o no Sur is nominated for "Album of the year", "Song of the year" (La Procesión) and "Best Music Video" (La Procesión).

In between trips, Kevin recorded his third album City Zen, again by Los Años Luz, which was well received both by fans and the media.

Due to his notable physical resemblance to argentine Football (soccer) player Piojo López, he is frequently called Piojo Johansen.
