Genre- Alternative Rock, of a non specific genre, includes elements of many musical styles, unique to each effort. Guitar heavy with poignant lyrics and interesting music phraseology, but with a bit of jazz, blues and metal, for good measure. Both Kim and Corey have a background in music of all types, from Mountain Folk to Metal, Classical to Classic Rock, as both of their families played instruments and encouraged their children to do so also.
Coreys father is an accomplished Blue Grass and Mountain Folk musician, who has played many a venue throughout the farm and coal regions of PA. Kims mother was a successful Harmonica player, and whistler, and played French Canadian Folk songs for large gatherings of enthusiasts throughout the French Canadian communities of South Eastern Connecticut. These learned from her Mother who was from Quebec. Kims dad loved early Jazz, and played that form deep into the night. These Legacies have been played forward. Kims son Zac is the #1 ranked Whistler in the world, and a Classical musician. He has toured in Europe, and has CDs released. Legacy!
All told the music expressed in the album CROW is derived from many of the root sounds that both musicians and songwriters experienced from youth onward, and their improvisations of that music. The KIN'DRED have been likened to morphs of Deep Purple and Ozzy too Breaking Benjamin and The Strokes, and others, …..listen and decide for yourself. Kim likes to call it "Indie Stew", a thick soup of tasty genres, served hot and steamy….seasoned from the heart.' (Served with a grilled cheese of course) Enjoy!
Singles released from the CD- 'CROW', 'Fighting Dinosaurs', 'SHARK!'
Currently finishing the CD 'CROW', with a release shortly.
