"That's really the only thing I've been passionate about for the last twenty years. Well, that and Jiu Jitsu," says Josh Kidney, lead singer of Kid Nebraska. In addition to playing over 100 shows a year, Josh holds a brown belt in Brazilian Jiu Jitsu and makes plenty of time for rolling and training with the fighters at Mick Doyle's Gym. "I'd say I train between 4 and 6 times a week. The mornings are for Jiu Jitsu. Nights and weekends are for music."
Kid Nebraska formed in the fall of 2017. Even though Josh was already busy playing guitar for Dylan Bloom, he wanted an outlet for the songs he’d been writing over the years. On a whim, he messaged Travis Muzney, a drummer who’d filled in for Dylan on several occasions. Travis jumped at the chance to start a band and brought along Jon Packard, an Air Force Veteran, on bass. All that was left to round out the sound was a second guitarist. That’s when Josh called his longtime friend and guitar mentor Todd Laird. Once the four-piece was established, the band started practicing and booking.
Kid Nebraska's first single “Go” was produced and recorded by Matty Sanders at Fuse Studios and was released on August 14. The companion video was released two days earlier and was viewed over 27,000 times and shared more than 350 times in it's first week.
In October, the band will return to the studio to finish up their debut album which will be released in late 2018 to early 2019.
