Kevin Walker

Kevin Walker aka SignKid became deaf after contracting meningitis when he was three. At the age of 11, he found that music was his passion so he started studying at a specialist music school on a course called Deaf Rave for aspiring music producers who are deaf or hard-of-hearing, a report by the BBC said.

Now, the deaf hip-hop artist composes and performs his own music and his lyrics reflect his life, experiences and the way he sees things.

“My aim is to encourage deaf people from UK and around the world to be more involved in the music industry…I also will continue to talk about deaf culture and our issues and struggles in daily life. I am here to make good music and to spread the message that to change the world we must resolve these problems,” Walker said in 2016.
