The Kid is a 29-year old musician from Greater Boston. He has been making beats since his high school days. He started making beats with a Boss BR-532 Digital Multi Track Recorder, then a Tascam DP-008 8-track digital Portastudio, and eventually with Cubase SX 3 up through High School. He started singing to his own beats more seriously after being heavily influenced by 808s & Heartbreak by Kanye West.
In early 2016 he decided to really take his beat making serious. He purchased Ableton Live 9, Native Instruments, Autotune, a Roland FA-06 keyboard, and an iMac Desktop computer to go along with his microKorg,. He creates his beats from these instruments/software.
The Kid And Friends first started in September 2016 when The Kid was able to get Atlanta-based artist Rome Fortune to feature on one of his beats. From there he was hooked and realized he could potentially create a collaboration album featuring many talented artists. The Kid And Friends was mixed by Mertz and mastered by The Arcitype at The Bridge Sound & Stage. It was finished in December of 2019.
The Kid started working with Showoff Marketing to help market and promote this album around February 2020. The Kid and Friends (TKAF) is now available on all streaming platforms with animated music videos for "Yeah", "You Can't Get This Money", and "Dark" available on Youtube.
The Kid is continuing to promote TKAF with Showoff Marketing and is currently working on several others projects including his next album.
