Kevin's episode of Allt för Sverige


Kevin's featured episode of Allt for Sverige has aired in Sweden and now we can watch it here in the US. As Kevin explains, "The story of how my family from Sweden to the USA in the 1800's is a deeply complicated story that I didn't expect. It angered me personally and emotionally. But, it explained so much o why I am who I am: determined! The magic of this show is to tell "the story," in all it's unpleasant details if required, of why people left Sweden and headed to America. I had never before looked at my family's departure from Sweden as being necessary to simply survive. When you look at any immigrant, anywhere in the world, survival of striving for a better life is always the root cause of moving to the other side of the globe. Why would my family be any different? It was wonderful to learn of the difficult struggles they overcame, simply to be given a chance, and to rediscover my roots. I feel blessed to have the life that I do have as a musician. But learning the story of how it all started gave me an even deeper appreciation for just how lucky I am to be alive. And, prouder than ever of my own heritage!" Watch the episode below!

Kevin Joins Cast of TV's The Great Swedish Adventure


TARJA bassist KEVIN CHOWN joins the cast of The Great Swedish Adventure reality TV Show


May 16, 2018 - Los Angeles, CA based musician KEVIN CHOWN, bass player for Finnish artist TARJA as well as CHAD SMITH'S BOMBASTIC MEATBATS, COSMOSQUAD, and DER ELEFANT, will take part in Season 8 of Swedish Emmy-award winning reality TV show Allt för Severige (Everything for Sweden), marketed internationally as The Great Swedish Adventure. Allt för Sverige is one of the most popular television shows in Sweden and is regularly watched by up to 30% of the country's viewing audience.

"I've done a few parts on TV shows here in L.A. but nothing quite like what's about to happen," enthuses Chown. "It's a wonderful opportunity to be in the 2018 cast of Allt för Sverige, a unique show that I'm sure it will be one of the greatest experiences of my life! One rooted in my heritage. I've been blessed to travel as a musician to over 60 countries, but never have I had a chance to see Sweden even though Tarja is based next door in Finland where I've played multiple times. So this is extra special - to learn about where my family is from, learn about the culture and, hopefully, meet my entire living Swedish family! And if that's not enough, I'll also have the opportunity to play the legendary Sweden Rock festival with Tarja on June 9, which is less than a month away. So all roads seem to be leading to Sweden this summer! It's the trip of a lifetime. And my life has been A TRIP!"
