Kevin’s Key Soundbites

“I think software is a creative thing.”

“You can sit there for hours developing, designing something and then come out with something that other people can use.”

“I was confident that I could create something that people could buy.”

“You soon learn when businesses start expanding that you need to get people in place to help you.”

“Technology is a very detailed type of business.”

“Technology is all to do with understanding what the customer wants.”

“Money isn’t the main motivator really.”

“Music gives you a kind of tranquillity…it’s a bit like meditation.”

“I like the creativity of playing music.”


Given the chance to choose a song to close the show Kevin went for Francis Lockwood Trio’s version of ‘All Along the Watchtower‘: “It’s a famous song by Bob Dylan that was covered fantastically by Jimi Hendrix…this song is a great version of it. It kind of almost redefines the song in the same way that Hendrix did many years ago.”
