Members include singer/songwriter Zach Wheat (Texas), drummer "Element" Yves Elisee Akowendo (Côte d'Ivoire), bassist Elad Avni (South Africa) and guitarist Babush (Israel).
Their album 'Kick It In' harkens back to the early days of rock when Jerry Lee Lewis and Elvis himself took their country roots and laid it down at the foot of rock and roll's door. With just the right amount of twangy honky tonk, the Kids wrap a cocky rock and roll attitude into their songs.
Fresh and original with rambunctious opening tracks ‘Biscuits’ and ‘Don't Fight Your Lonely’ to the ballads like ‘Bone Coast’ and Favorite Time of Year, the Lynchesque ‘Millie's Song’ and the humorous Kiss Me Like A Girl and All The Things We Do, I found this whole album a treat that will get oodles of play time.
