Seamlessly threading jam vibes with serious jazz cred, Athens’s own Kenosha Kid has been intriguing and delighting crowds since their 2004 inception. It’s normal to hear melodies and instrumentation that is “unexpected”, “uniquely blended”, and “a different breed” in their music, which has been praised by the likes of Popmatters and AXS. Kenosha Kid crosses conventional musical borders, and it’s an awesome genre-melding journey for the listener. Kenosha Kid has carved out their own corner of music, with sultry jazz horns over driving drums and guitar.
Greenville Journal called their music “simply wonderful to listen to: somehow soothing, exciting, experimental and melodic all at once.” When reviewing their most recent release Inside Voices, Flagpole called the track “Mushmouth” a “nimble exercise featuring sultry, wayfaring grooves”. Kenosha Kid has made an impression as innovators and creators, continuing to delight with their modern jazz blend for over ten years.
