A few days before the release of his full length LP, Into Oblivion, Kevin Hahn gave us a behind-the-scenes look at the new record. In addition to being an accomplished vocalist, guitarist, and singer songwriter, Kevin is the owner-operator of the highly acclaimed Opal Studio here in Portland.
On this week’s PDX Spotlight playlist, we debuted several tracks from Into Oblivion which was met with high praise on the Talk Board. My cohost, Jen Em asked Kevin where he draws his inspiration from and he spoke about the importance of trusting your intuition. “If there’s something you really wanna do – just do it. Do it every day!” said Hahn. Kevin also spent some time talking about his role as a music producer versus a recording artist.
Listen to the podcast below to hear more about Kevin’s influences, theories on songwriting, and his thoughts on the Portland music scene.

At my core, I am a musician, songwriter, producer, studio owner/engineer, and, most importantly, a lover of all things music. It is my goal to help connect listeners to local artists. I believe we should all be searching for the next thing that inspires us.
I am originally from Arizona, where over many years, I played in several different independent bands in the Phoenix and Tucson areas. I put in many, many hours of grassroots-style promotion in order to get my bands heard. I am excited to be a part of Portland Radio Project where I can provide an avenue to local Portland musicians to share their art.
