“Original piano compositions that offer something quite rare: pieces that are classical yet relatable”. Devon Jackson, Freelance Music Journalist
"Darker Days", really captures the essence of the title: it's moody, evocative, emotional and deep. I almost cried as the keys crescendo-ed about half way through, taking me down into my darkest and inner most secret cave of longings and dreams. Wow, what a pianist, and what a composer. We need more Kevin Mongelli's in the world to usher such emotion and take us on a journey in music. Thank you for delivering this to us. Albeit a dark and lonely place, they say you need to feel the blues to play the blues. - Gilli Moon

“Train to Despair” conveys dark and powerful emotions expressed eloquently and honestly.  - Kathy Parsons, MainlyPiano.com




“He creates a depth of sound with just a piano that is rarely heard from artists and songwriters alike. ”
Paul Ruth - The Independent Music Scene



“Kevin has created a style of piano playing that is all his own. No song does a better job of displaying this fact than "Ascension", the title track to his new album project. Prepare to be dazzled by his musicianship on this one. If you enjoy the color and emotion that the piano can offers with the right musician stroking its keys, Ascension will satisfy your desire to be entertained. ”

“Again, Kevin Mongelli delivers an incredible album project that shows his understanding of the classical piano genre. Christmas Variations , is an amazing collection of Christmas holiday classics that can be enjoyed by the whole family throughout the holiday season. ”
