With a professional Musical Career spanning 45 years that includes founding New Zealand’s hit band La De Da’s and Australia’s The Party Boys is a quintessential stalwart in the rock and blues industry of the region in launches his inaugural iTune / Spotify album ‘Totem’ June 2nd 2015.
Disc 1 of Totem delivers fourteen tracks ranging from acoustic slow blues into lustful funk and boogie and into belting sublime rock. An all-original work that was for the most part written over a nine-year period during which time Kevin fought and defeated cancer. Following his passion for inspiration, Borich continued to write music, perform and tour in between chemo and treatment. Thought provoking human condition prevails throughout the lyrics of these works. And though political slants slash at current issues, his hard hitting, groove blues-rock seldom breaks its trend of feel good, tongue-in-cheek fun. The album finishes with a modern re-incarnation of his hit ‘Gonna See My Baby Tonight’.

The 3rd track and video single Strong Hold is a testament to Borich’s life, his dedication to performing music throughout and by no means least, the love of family. The closest folks that stand by you, and with you, and never give up on you, from creation to the other-side, of which we are all somewhere in-between, these people are ones strong hold.
Disc 2 is a bonus disc of shear musical extravagance as only a musician of this calibre can deliver. The leading track titled “The Love Train” is an emotionally charged Stratocaster cry baby instrumental searching & reaching for it… and that.
Motif – [I Cried For You] – is very unique, never done before work that rolls to a throbbing blues feel. Clean wails & doom fuzz exploit emotional meanings revealed in mosaic. The last track is a sound scape solo guitar journey of information with salute.
Borich’s parting question to you on the liner notes of the album “Think Something Of It” So, what will you think?
