A conversation with musicians John Schlitt and Kevin Burgess ('KB')
This week, Warren Smith talks with two musicians: Christian rock legend John Schlitt of the band Petra, and Kevin Burgess, who is better known as the hip-hop artist KB.
John Schlitt was in the hard rock band Head East when their 1975 song “Never Been Any Reason” became a hit. But after getting kicked out of Head East for drug dependency, Schlitt left the music industry, became a Christian, and had a musical comeback as the front man for one of Christian rock’s biggest bands, Petra.
Kevin Burgess, or KB, was discovered by Lecrae and signed to Lecrae’s Reach Records. He released his first album, Weight and Glory, in 2012 and his latest EP, 100, came out earlier this year.
