Kid Beyond and the Holy Wolves.jpg
 

After years touring the world as a solo artist, Kid Beyond is coming with the fire for 2019 — with his new band, Kid Beyond and the Holy Wolves.

A scorching mix of heavy, bluesy indie rock and future-bass electro, Kid B’s new sound is like White Stripes meets James Blake. Zeppelin meets Ableton. Howlin’ Wolf meets the womp and the drop.

It’s soulful, visceral, heart-warrior music for turbulent times — powered by Kid B’s virtuosic pipes, his deep roots as a Buddhist teacher + activist, and his band of electro-funk shamans: brothers Kevin and Geoff McCann (Elephantine) and Hassan Hurd (The Coup).

Kid Beyond made his bones as a groundbreaking, live-looping vocal wizard — multitracking his singing and beatboxing to create his own live backing tracks — riveting hundreds of thousands of viewers around the world.

J.J. Abrams sought him out for the Mission: Impossible theme song.
VH1 had him on 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.

Awesome... a tour-de-force.
Kid Beyond is a kinetic blur as he performs...
Virtuosity in the service of a musical mission.”

You’re in the presence of a higher power.

He is amazing... something this jaded music writer
couldn’t entirely put into words.”

Kid B at Coachella

Jaw-dropping.
Fully-realized. Deeply human.
Kid Beyond goes one step further than virtuosity.”
— AllMusic review

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, down-home garage-rock stomp manifesto on gun violence and violence against people of color.

“A truly charismatic performer
with an incredibly soulful singing voice...
Kid Beyond reigns as the king of the Bay.”
— SF Bay Guardian, Best of the Bay
