Biography

Kid Confucius release their sophomore album, Stripes, heralding a new sound for the band and a pioneering step forward for soul and hip hop music in Australia.

Eight-piece Sydney band, Kid Confucius boldly go where few groups have gone before: they deftly bridge the gap between old school soul and modern hip hop, while remaining wholly within the live arena. Forming in 2001, the members of Kid Confucius came together from all over Australia’s most diverse international city joined by a common allegiance to soul music’s royalty who held court in the 60s and 70s, and their musical descendents who reign over the hip hop nation today.

After establishing a solid reputation across Australia as one of the country’s leading live acts, the band released their debut self-titled album in 2005. Rolling Stone magazine hailed the album as “standing out easily as one of the best local releases of the year well above most Australian hip-hop and soul releases.” Kid Confucius supported their critically acclaimed album with consistent national touring, building a loyal and everexpanding grass roots fan base, selling out shows around the country and exploding onto the festival circuit with astounding performances at Splendour In The Grass, The Great Escape, and more recently Festival Of The Sun and Peats Ridge Festival.

Once the band members had purged their systems of first album material, most of which dated back to the band’s inception, they immediately started writing songs towards a new record.
