Host: Kevin Ker

Best known as the songwriter and front-man for Markham’s Future History and Man Made Forest, Kevin’s musical influences are vast and unexpected, this can be felt in the songs he writes and performs. His lyrics are deep and ominous yet trigger powerful emotional reactions from those who engage.

As an individual Kevin has become a staple in the local Markham & Stouffville music community. He hosts three weekly open mics at The Duchess in Markham, The Earl of Whitchurch and The Unionville Arms. In July of 2012 he completed a concept inspired back in 2009. Kevin wanted to connect his deep rooted passion for music, his knowledge of the music industry and his vast network of friends and artists into one active and inspired community. He wanted to build a community with the strength to make incredible things happen. Epidemic Music Group was officially born.

Epidemic Music Group is now a spiraling musical organism. From producing records to organizing music festivals, hosting incredible community driven open mics to putting on the longest concert in recorded history. EMG continues to grow at rapid pace.
