Saturday brought us United Kingdom artist, now residing in Victoria, BC, Kid on the Pavement to the Streaming Cafe. From the moment Chris Llyod ( Kid on the Pavement being his stage alter ego) pulled up to the cafe in a 70's brown Camaro, it was quite clear there's a retro feel about him. This retro approach not only resided in KOTP's personal style but also came through strong in his music. Much like his influences, Neil Young and Simon & Garfunkel, his strong melodies and guitar work communicated well the reflective and sometimes dark stories he had to tell.
Kid on the pavement is relatively new to the Canadian scene but look to hear great things from him in the future. His debut album is being wrapped up and will be coming soon. Until then have a listen to a live clip "Paris Rain", one of my favorites, from the show. Enjoy!
