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.
Citizens & Saints is an Alternative Gospel band from Seattle, WA. In 2011 the band formed at their home church of mostly college students just blocks from the University of Washington. Each week the walls of the 100 year old church building they gathered in seemed to disappear as the sounds of God’s people shouting praises echoed throughout the streets of the U-District. The hymn arrangements (In Tenderness, How Great Thou Art, Nothing But The Blood) and gospel-centered original songs (Made Alive, Oh God, You Brought Me Back To Life) that the band has gained global influence through, all find their origins back there in that little old church. What best defines the heart beat of the band is the Gospel. Citizens & Saints hope is that through singing the gospel, all who hear it would know how great the love of God is for them through Jesus.
