About Kevan Tidy:
Before working with Iron Man Records Kevan was a musician and a songwriter. He encountered the usual problems and attempted scams of the record industry and developed an interest and expertise in contracts and copyright.
Kevan has worked as a Lawyer for many years and can help aspiring inventors, film makers, writers, and musicians and has worked at all levels.
Kevan enjoys working with Iron Man Records and all the bands but believing photographs morph his soul (a problem most other lawyers need have no fear of) no current image of him exists.
