When it comes to doing interviews to promote an acting project, Kevin Bacon isn’t much for dishing out his life story. But when it comes to writing songs, The Bacon Brothers are all about creating the soundtrack of their experience. Kevin and his elder sibling, Michael, have been a consistent fixture in the studio and on the road for the better part of 20 years, releasing eight albums in the process. The group will perform Saturday at The Kent Stage.

“To me, you do countless interviews where people are hoping you’re going to reveal something personal about yourself,” Kevin Bacon said. “And in fact, I look at that part of interviews as a skill where you make people believe you’re sharing something personal when you’re really not. I’m sorry to admit that, but that’s how I approach the personal side of doing press.” Music is different. Read the full interview in the Canton Repository

The Bacon Brothers

News

Kevin and Michael Bacon are only one degree removed from each other — and not even that when it comes to making music.

Music as been part of the Bacon Brothers' lives since childhood, and as an actual band since a 1995 show in their home town of Philadelphia. It's a respite from their day jobs — Kevin's as an actor, Michael's as a composer and an instructor at Lehman College in New York — and the duo has released eight studio albums.

The latest of those, "The Way We Love," was out Friday, July 17, with nine original songs and a live cover of the Cannonball Adderley/Buckinghams hit "Mercy, Mercy, Mercy," recorded with friend and former baseball star Bernie Williams. The Bacons co-produced seven of the tracks on the diverse set, which runs the gamut from the upbeat dance-pop of "Play!" — a single released last summer — to the bluesgrass-flavored "Picker" and the smooth jazz of "The Cooking Song (Add Love and Stir)."
