Groundbreaking vocalist Kid Beyond is back with a heavy slice of “future blues” — a full band combining blues/indie rock with future-bass electro. Like Howlin’ Wolf jamming with Kanye, Diplo, James Blake, and Rage Against the Machine. It’s soulful, shamanic, somatic music for turbulent times — fueled by his Buddhist and activist paths.
Kid B is joined by Geoff McCann (Elephantine, Dogcatcher) on guitar; Kevin McCann (Elephantine, EagleWolfSnake) on bass, keyboards, electronics; and Hassan Hurd (The Coup) on drums.
Kid Beyond’s pioneering live-looping work — multitracking his singing and beatboxing to create his own live backing tracks — has riveted hundreds of thousands of viewers around the world, at festivals such as Coachella, Treasure Island, SXSW, Wakarusa, Langerado, Lightning in a Bottle, Symbiosis, Burning Man, Ottawa Bluesfest, and w00tstock.
He has shared the stage with James Brown, Ray Charles, Will.I.Am, Lupe Fiasco, Keane, Imogen Heap, Bassnectar, Run-DMC, LL Cool J, Widespread Panic, Michael Franti & Spearhead, Lyrics Born, Steve Aoki, Disco Biscuits, Amon Tobin, Buckethead, Glitch Mob, and Particle… and founded the legendary a cappella funk band The House Jacks.
His music has rocked films (Mission Impossible III), video games (NBA Live, Guitar Hero, Rock Band), and TV (Gossip Girl, Kyle XY, Attack of the Show, The Sing-Off, Life, VH1‘s Supergroup). kidbeyond.com
