Kevin Whalum grew up in Memphis in the shadow of Olivet Baptist Church, where his father, the Rev. Kenneth T. Whalum, served as pastor. The church, known as a magnet for great singers and musicians (including brother, renowned jazz saxophonist Kirk Whalum), became a centerpiece of Kevin's life as a youngster, creating both a religious and a musical foundation for him. A popular live and session vocalist in Nashville, Kevin appeared on brother Kirk's "The Gospel According to Jazz, Volume 1" (1997) and "Romance Language" (2012) among others, and has released two solo albums, "Timetable" (2003) and "One Life To Love" (2008).
