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 InstrucciÃ³n CÃvica 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.
During the same year, and with the new album in his hands, he returned to Argentina, where he currently lives. The album, released by Los AÃ±os Luz, had was relatively successful and Kevin and the group went on tour as far as Spain (album edited there by K Industrias).
