Kevin Mongelli is an award winning composer as well as a voting member of The Recording Academy. He creates and performs original piano music with unexpected insight and intensity. Additionally, he is an aspiring screenwriter.
Kevin's mother taught him to play a 12 string guitar at an early age. Then one day as a teenager, he was sitting at the piano and taught himself the chords from the guitar onto the keyboard. That was a huge revelation for him. He began to spend hours on end working with chord progressions and learning to play standards with chords and melodies. As his skills progressed, he began to jot his own ideas down and ultimately created quite a portfolio of compositions. He studied music at Duquesne University where he earned his college degree. Mongelli has performed throughout the United States as well as the Caribbean.
Mongelli has currently four released albums:
INSPERATO (2014) Fort Lonesome (2012) Christmas Variations (2011) Ascension (2009)
