Kevin and Kimberly Gullickson, a husband and wife musical team, have had a vision for serving Christ through music and the arts for many years. Together they have been writing contemporary Christian Rock and Praise and Worship songs under the name, 2EDGE.
Their music style has developed through influences such as Hillsong, DC Talk and Third Day. Musical influences for Kevin''s arrangements come from many mainstream artists which he grew up listening to, such as The Beatles, U2 and REM.
For years, Kevin pursued a career in the music industry releasing independent records along the way. His work spans over 20 years with his first release dating back to the early 80s. During the course of these year, he has been contacted by 5 major record companies and 3 Grammy Award winning producers, expressing interest in his music.
In 1980 he released a 4-song EP which received local press coverage and radio play in his hometown of Rochester, MN. In 1982 Kevin followed up with a single which received radio play in the Minneapolis/St Paul area.
In 1984, Kevin traveled Europe to develop his own sound and style which he later developed with a band in 1986 which was an instant success in the Minneapolis/St Paul club scene. Later in 1987, Kevin moved to New York City to further pursue his music. It was at this time that he met Kimberly, who would later become his wife and musical partner.
In 1990 Kevin and Kimberly moved to Minnesota and over the next decade, continued to develop their music. Kimberly remained active singing with a women''s trio and ministered through their music at local churches, prisons and other outreach ministries. Kevin served as worship leader at their local church.
In 2000 Kevin released a CD entitled Freedom, under the name Radio Drive. Two songs from this CD made the Top 10 charts on a noted independent music site, Broadjam and remained there for several weeks. Kevin received favorable emails from listeners throughout the world, including Egypt, England and Sweden.
For the past 5 years, Kevin and Kimberly have been an active part of their local church''s Praise & Worship Band. In addition, they serve with their musical talents at a local men''s homeless shelter and women''s prison ministry.
In October 2005 Kevin and Kimberly''s vision of recording a CD was realized. They released their debut CD as 2EDGE entitled "The Promised Land", featuring nine original contemporary praise and worship songs. On the CD, Kevin uses his musical gifts by playing all the instruments. Their vision for the CD and music is to encourage and bring the body of Christ into the presence of God through praise and worship of Him.
