Mitchell Kidd Q&A

Your name: 
Mitchell Kidd.

Where are you from?
I reside in Phoenix, Arizona.

How would you describe your music?
High energy groove rock.

Who are your main influences musically?
Early Pretenders, early Smashing Pumpkins, Green Day, Stone Temple Pilots, Blink 182 and The Cars.

What do you hope to achieve in music?
To put out material that I love and am proud of and to have as many people as possible get the opportunity to judge for themselves.

What has been the highlight of your career so far, and why?
Seeing my studio project come to life as a "live" show and also winning two songwriting contests in the 2013 calendar year.

And what’s the moment you want to forget?
None of it. The very few things that could have been better are being learned from. I want to remember everything.

If you had to choose just one of your songs to represent your music, what would it be and why?
I Work Best With A Gun To My Head because it showcases the energy, the inspirational lyrics, the not taking myself too seriously and the musicianship displayed in this project.

Where can we listen to it?
Where can we find out more about your music?

Anything else you’d like to say that I forgot to ask?
One person wrote every word, sung every note, played rhythm guitar, bass, drums and piano. on three songs. I played lead guitar and have brought in the top lead guitar players from my community as well as the lead guitarist from KORN.
I thank you for an opportunity to get my music heard by a larger audience. I do believe the songs cross boundaries that multiple genres can appreciate.
I am not trying to copy the next big thing, I simply write what I hear in my head and don't release a song unless I, and I alone, love it.
