Kevin Downs is a writer, educator, and filmmaker. He is the key creative talent behind music videos, electronic press kits, and promotional films for such Grammy award-winning artists as The Ramones, Lucinda Williams, and Jim Lauderdale.  His love of combining the magic of music with the power of the visual image began in the pre-digital age, with sneaking cameras into concerts to steal a clandestine photo or two, a habit that he has yet to outgrow.
