KINGS KALEIDOSCOPE
KINGS KALEIDOSCOPE
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.
Wordsplayed
Wordsplayed
Whether it be wowing crowds with his lyrical prowess or organizing community events for the elderly, Wordsplayed has emerged as one of the great riddles of modern rap music. A pioneer of the self coined “indie­trap” sound, John “Wordsplayed” Itiola uses his unique voice and whimsical lyricism to paint pictures that are equal parts fawn in
mid stride and 1980’s era Japanese race car engineering.

Coming off of the success of his first solo project Clowntown and his
groundbreaking collaborative project Magic & Bird Wordsplayed is now
ready to delight the world with some new music.

His latest effort “Lo­Fi Love Part 1 (LFL1)” and “Lo­Fi Love Part 2
(LFL2)” have been paired with his stellar “Lo­Fidelity Hour” and
“Lo­Fidelity Nights Uncut” direct to public access television series’,
respectively.
