MARCUS ALAN WARD

CAPTAIN KIDD

--------------

Singer, Songwriter, Producer, Electro Soul pioneer – MARCUS ALAN WARD is on a musical quest to impress himself. With an electrically charged live show and a handful of releases ranging from Psychedelic Pop, Funk, RnB, Disco and beyond, his work has been featured in publications including The Fader, Pitchfork, Pigeons & Planes, Spin and many more. Mishka NYC blog writes, “There’s a connection between WARD and the sheer scope of the universe that we may never understand, but if you listen long enough it starts to make sense.”

The self-taught multi-instrumentalist and Cleveland, Ohio native released a pair of EP’s under the “Freeze-Tag” moniker (2012’s WLDFLWR_HNY and 2013’s Eskimo) and followed up with his debut full length album Last Night I Grew Tentacles – an Electronic/Alt Rock/Soul concept album rooted in science fiction, space exploration, and quantum physics, created by a curious young black male. Dropping his previous moniker, the record was released via Long Division Recordings in August of 2014 under his own name. WARD says of the name change, “It really draws distinction to the fact that I’m a one-man composer and that it’s just me; it’s more honest.” Drawing from an imagination as expansive as the universe itself, the only child continues to create a portal into musical golden eras of the past while bravely forging ahead into the future.

They hail from Columbus, Ohio, but the music of CAPTAIN KIDD defies any regional generalization. The psyche-pop quartet has captured the ears of listeners across the globe by creating spacey tunes that sound like the vocal stylings of GLASS ANIMALS filtered through the modern house music sensibilities of DISCLOSURE. Throw in some atmospheric guitars a lá THE XX and it’s no wonder these guys have been tearing up Spotify’s viral charts with their recent releases - make sure to bring your best dancing shoes.
