The Kaleidoscope Kid Releases Feel-Good Single “Watermelon Kisses”

After Battling A Life Threatening Disease & Healing Himself Off-Grid In The Woods, The Kaleidoscope Kid Emerges With Feel-Good Single “Watermelon Kisses”


Phoenix singer/songwriter The Kaleidoscope Kid takes listeners on a psychedelic trip with his music, much like his own personal journey where he has gone from living in a cabin in the woods off-the-grid to battling an autoimmune disease that almost cost him his life.

Diagnosed with Reiter’s syndrome, a disease that ravages the entire body with crippling arthritis, inflammation, and swelling of the joints that left him unable to leave a hospital bed for months. After countless misdiagnoses left doctors dumbfounded, Kaleidoscope Kid turned to Eastern medicine experimenting with reishi mushrooms and various organic berries to battle the disease. His holistic approach worked and during the time in the woods he also experimented with Hallucinogenic mushrooms sometimes tripping for weeks at a time. He then dedicated his life to music, living inside the Phoenix based recording studio where he would record his first demos that eventually got him signed to indie powerhouse label Suburban Noize Records.

Although a true newcomer to the music scene, Kaleidoscope’s discography leaps and bounds between spaces, leaning on his charisma to bring the listener along for the ride. His music is a reflection of his own experiences growing up as a kid that grew up on skateboarding, visual art, and outdoor escapism. The diversity of his activities and surroundings translated into a varied love for music, bringing about a sonic

landscape in his work that echoes his passions and interests.

A fan of an extensive catalog of inspirations that span from Beck, Pink Floyd, to Bob Marley and Sublime— his work is a reflection of intentionality and passion for the craft. Taking pieces of his life and translating them into his sound has helped Kaleidoscope create an ethereal world that’s equal parts relatable and entrancing.

After signing with Suburban Noize Records and flexing some idiosyncratic flows on “Hold Up”, The Kaleidoscope Kid has returned with a new single and video for “Watermelon Kisses”. With the maturity of ‘old soul, The Kaleidoscope Kids sings about being young and in love over a funky beat and some breezy acoustic guitars. The uplifting and feel-good vibrations of the song make you instantly want to put the song on repeat.

“The song ‘Watermelon Kisses’ was inspired by the beauty of a new relationship. The concept is based around what it feels like to first fall in love with someone,” said The Kaleidoscope Kid. “At the time in my life when the song was written, I had just recovered from a broken heart and I wasn’t sure if I would ever experience that connection again. Shortly after I met a beautiful woman who inspired the song and reminded me that everything happens for a reason.”

The Kaleidoscope Kid has created a wonderfully creative musical playground that is an immersive escape from daily life. Armed with some blues-style electric guitar riffs and hip-hop percussion, The Kaleidoscope Kid emerged from his journey living off-grid with a powerful self-titled debut album dropping March 11th, 2022.
