Kevin Wyre (stage name Wyre) is an R&B and reggae musician from Kenya known from the groups Necessary Noize and East African Bashment Crew as well as a solo artist.

As a member of the Necessary Noize group, Wyre and the group released two very successful albums that raised the bar for other musical groups in Kenya. Formed in the latter part of 2000 Necessary Noize released hits such as 'Kenyan Girl Kenyan Boy' and 'Bless my Room'.

He has released two solo albums. He released his first solo album "Definition of a Lovechild" in 2006. His 2010 album 10Years Wiser, was named for his 10-year spanning career in music.

Musician Wyre learnt the art of music production under the tutelage of veteran producer Ted Jossiah of Audio Vault Studio, later renamed Blue Zebra. Ted is the force behind the modern Kenyan sound that emerged in the late 1990s. When he left Wyre went on to pursue a successful music career, and has since set up his own production house, soul Child Records.

With a musical career spanning more than 16 years, Wyre has been nominated and won various awards. In May 2013 Wyre was awarded the Best New Entertainer award at the International Reggae and World Music Award.
