Seeing the talents Kevin possessed, His father (Chief Torte Law Department Attorney to the Chicago Transit Authority) Kelly Kappler(Born under the name Leo Micheal John Kappler, Jr.) placed him in numerous artistic classes and schools, where he developed his love in the drama, music,and the visual arts entertainment industry

Kevin not only stared in many local high-school and private plays/musicals, he has been known as a local disc jockey performing for Weddings and special events.
Kevin also became his sister's full time vocal coach for 8 years. From 1992-2000 when Heather broke free from the two recording demo tracks in a home made studio in their Lake villa Home, to performing with the Mel Hayes Band that performed both locally and across the seas in South Korea for the Military war Recreation or M.W.R.

Later going solo and commercially selling songs under his own name. (Written and performed by him and Ryan who played the chords, for him, on a 12 string acoustic guitar).
Such as written on the tracks so simply known as 'The Feeling Winds'.
We traveled down these sometimes dark and always bright hope-filled pathways, we share how we breathed and worked so very hard to reach, the inner triumph of the battles inside,to this beautiful place we call our own.
Written as a doorway from their world to yours. listen to the songwriter's hearts sing. Emotions fire that breaths life into the once hallowed halls of darkness brought by 'Shattered Dreams' and the memories they tastefully call Melloncoli Day Dreams
So filling these once dark and empty halls, with the paintings and statues so symbolizing the Winding Roads in our life, that when one opens this once closed door to our unknown hearts, the world is now let in.
Bringing forth a new generation of music that so powerfully sent a found 'Welcome To Our World'. So now potently renamed 'Welcome,Welcome, to my Life'. (as registered through the bmi*).
Enjoy the Tender Notions that sparks loving warmth into once battered and weakened souls. That sometimes are faced to the painful notions that, sometimes, Love is Easy Come and It is Easy Go.
The sound forwards the mood to inner strength and hopeful melodies. Signaling smokes that remind us, in messages,to Never Forget Yourself. by never riding the currents of the roaring and sweet Passionate Rivers.
The waters that provide answers. Questions that we face, when looking in the mirror of life. The mirrored reflections then speaks to us, that in the Morning, when we start wondering, 'is This Me?'
The answers find us turning away from the bitter pasts, or torn up routes in life that we sometimes start to wander aimlessly down,roaming onward to a brighter destination.
So Defines the saga behind the Legend that is Altered Sensorium - 'The Feeling winds'
