Excuse me is this thing on? (pause) (feedback) Mic drop. Some like it rough and nasty, while others like it smooth and trashy so just what is that sound we are digging in the recesses of our brains??? Could it be a blend of the aforementioned and kicked back in a hot breathe? KB & the Idyllwilde is that shot glass of smooth that hits your throat with a burn and leaves your lungs with a rough edge.
KB & The Idyllwilde is a soul-rock band based in Nashville, TN, led by high octane vocalist Katie Burke. Her lyrical content deals in the offbeat and the ugly; the extremes of love, sex, death and pain.
Sonically, the band draws influence from artists ranging from Janis, Jimi, and Zeppelin to Beth Hart, DMB, and Jack White.
The name ‘Idyllwilde’ is derived from its two root words ‘idyll’ meaning ‘story’, and ‘wild’ meaning anything goes. The two words come together in acknowledgment of the band’s mission: to make music without the limits of genre or content, honoring the idea that ‘anything goes’. To KB, every compelling story is worth telling no matter what it looks or sounds like.
