Phoenix singer/songwriter/emcee, The Kaleidoscope Kid has released his debut album, accompanied by a music video for the upbeat standout single “Fight or Flight.”
The new album takes listeners into an ethereal world that’s equal parts relatable and entrancing with The Kaleidoscope Kid and his dog, Blue. Taking pieces of his life and translating them into his sound Kaleidoscope has created a unique concoction of his blues-style guitar blended with hip-hop percussion and soulful vocals.
The Kaleidoscope Kid was written, recorded, and produced by The Kaleidoscope Kid with mixing and mastering by Matthew Campbell at Vaul Studios in Scottsdale, AZ. Kaleidoscope returned to Sedona to record the album and he recalls, “The songs were all recorded in a cabin in the woods where I was living at the time. It seemed more as though the location chose me. And with the solitude and freedom offered by the surrounding forest, the songs of the birds and the creek, it was the perfect place to get lost in a world of my own creations.”
“Fight or Flight is the alchemical process of turning your dreams into reality while battling with the potential of failure. Songs written in a journal manifest themselves into reality like ripping out pages in my notebook and folding it into a paper plane – How far can these stories take you? As high as you want to go. But just as Daedalus warned Icarus…don’t fly too close to the sun,”– The Kaleidoscope Kid
With the new album “The Kaleidoscope Kid,” Kaleidoscope Kid has created a wonderfully creative musical playground that is an immersive escape from daily life. It is a psychedelic trip, reminiscent of The Kaleidoscope Kid’s own journey that traversed living in a cabin in the woods away from civilization for years to battling an autoimmune disease that almost cost him his life. Armed with blues-style electric guitar riffs and hip-hop percussion, The Kaleidoscope Kid emerged from his journey with a powerful self-titled debut album The Kaleidoscope Kid streaming online everywhere: https://fanlink.to/kaleidoscopekid.
