A Seattle-based collective of ten members, Kings Kaleidoscope uses an eclectic range of modern, woodwind, string and brass instruments for a colorful, stylistic harmony that stands greater than the sum of its parts.

 

The marriage of electronic and analogue soundscapes is a love letter to Motown and math rock, with illustrative lyricism that runs the gamut of haunting, uplifting, and resolved.

Singer/songwriter Chad Gardner carries these lyrics with a soulful treatment that compliments calculated drum work to create a balance between groove and mathematics. Tracks are peppered with electronics and sampling that call to The Bridge Wars era of hip hop, all the while bringing a refreshing stamina that breathes life into these timeless constructs.

KK’s trademark voice is their ever-growing accent across their 4 EP’s and critically acclaimed LP, “Becoming Who We Are.” Garnering attention since 2010, this collective is known for their musical and lyrical call for cosmic reflection.
