This month, The Laker Anchor salutes former Laker Kevin Kozel. Kevin is a 2008 graduate of Spring Lake, where his love for music allowed him to showcase his skills in the annual Talent Show.

After his time in Spring Lake, Kevin chose to forego college in favor of a life spent in music. Today, he is a freelance musician and music teacher. He also works as a music producer and a guitarist. Kevin also helps to run Third Coast Recording Studio, where he helps others to achieve their music dreams.

Kevin says, “Every day, I am around music. Some days I teach. Others I’m behind a soundboard tracking a band. The rest of the time is usually spent traveling and performing.”

When he was a student in Spring Lake, Kevin played football and did anything music related. He recalls his time fondly, saying, “I loved how supportive everyone was. I still see a lot of teachers at gigs of mine!”

Today, Kevin calls Grand Haven home, and his parents still live there, too. He admits that Spring Lake prepared him for life by letting him take time off for gigs and allowing him to take independent studies to practice during school hours. “I’d say SLHS was the biggest supporter in my initial success in music,” says Kevin.

Kevin his not married, though he does have a girlfriend, and he has no pets at home. His busy schedule keeps him from getting bored or too tied down. Kevin’s advice to students today: “Do what you love!”
