Kid Beyond and the Holy Wolves.jpg
 
 

After years touring the world as a solo artist, Kid Beyond is back with his killer new band — bringing a scorching brew of fiery, bluesy alt-rock and future-bass electro. Like White Stripes meets James Blake. Zeppelin meets Yeezus. Howlin’ Wolf meets the womp and the drop.

It’s soulful, visceral, heart-warrior music for turbulent times — fueled by Kid’s powerhouse pipes, his deep roots as a Buddhist teacher and activist, and his band of electro-funk shamans, including Geoff McCann (Elephantine) and Hassan Hurd (the Coup).

Kid Beyond made his bones as a groundbreaking vocal wizard — live-looping his singing and beatboxing to create all-vocal electro — rocking Coachella, Treasure Island, SXSW, Lightning in a Bottle, Symbiosis, Burning Man, and beyond.

He’s shared the stage with Bassnectar, Imogen Heap, Will.I.Am, Michael Franti & Spearhead, Widespread Panic, Lupe Fiasco, Keane, Steve Aoki, Amon Tobin, Lyrics Born, Disco Biscuits, Buckethead, Glitch Mob, The Coup, and many more.

J.J. Abrams sought him out for the Mission: Impossible theme song… VH1 flew him in to jam with Ted Nugent + Sebastian Bach’s Supergroup… Guitar Hero and Rock Band brought him in to sing like the rock gods… And now he’s staking out some rock-god territory of his own.

 
Kid Beyond will blow your mind.
One of the true wonders of the musical universe.”

MUSIC

I’M LOSING YOU

An epic, cinematic journey in two acts. Spooky, harrowing electro-blues explodes into a tsunami of psychedelic glitch-rock.

CEASEFIRE

An infectious, bluesy garage-rock stomp manifesto on gun violence and violence against people of color.

Awesome... a tour-de-force.
Kid Beyond is a kinetic blur as he performs.”
— NPR
