Kids is a six-piece American Indie-rock band formed in 2012 by Josiah Sampson (guitar), Joshua Diaz (lead vocals, bass), Matthew Barrios (drums) and Christian Gonzalez (guitar). Kids is licensed by C&I Studios and Hard Rock Energy, who featured “The Standoff” from Rich Coast and guitarist, Josiah Sampson, in their debut commercial.
Kids released their debut EP Sink or Swim in 2013 and quickly established themselves as local heroes in South Florida before securing fame nationwide. Kids’ thrilling performance at Florida’s Coastline Music Festival, where they shared the stage with St. Lucia, Surfer Blood, The Neighbourhood, and indie-icons Passion Pit, Matt & Kim, and Capital Cities, started a new chapter in the musical career.
Our collaboration with Kids marked their insurgence into the national music scene. We helped them film a number of music videos and teasers leading up to the debut of their latest LP release Rich Coast.
The following video (featured left) is a live recording we shot in our recording studio in Fort Lauderdale, known locally as The Barn. The setting shows the soul that keeps the band together, as well as providing great insight into the recording process and the band members’ skills as musical performers.
