Kiefer

Friday 4 February 2022

Kiefer is an innovator within the diverse independent music scene of Los Angeles. His sound fuses various modalities of Black American Music, not limited to jazz, R&B, and hip-hop.

 

Kiefer grew up in San Diego, California, immersed in jazz by his father at a young age, and later experimenting with hip-hop-inspired beats in high school. His musical path led him to pursue jazz piano at UCLA. While receiving traditional training at school, Kiefer got his education in beats from attending shows at Low End Theory and collaborating with other artists in the scene.

This unique combination of hard-hitting beats, complex jazz voicings and sentimental melodies all fed into Kiefer’s debut Kickinit Alone, released on Leaving Records in 2017. Soon after, Kiefer signed to Stones Throw and released his second album Happysad in the summer of 2018. In 2019, Kiefer released two EPs, Bridges and Superbloom. The third of his EP trilogy made in collaboration with the artist Mason London called Between Days released in spring of 2021. Kiefer’s third full-length album When There’s Love Around is out on Stones Throw August 27, 2021, with a worldwide tour to follow.

Kiefer at his core is both emotional and an optimist, which is why his songs resonate on the whole spectrum of emotion, but always have a happy ending. His ethos is about feeling encouraged, empowered, and full of gratitude, reminding listeners through his music, “this is a beautiful life.”
