Best known for the hit song "Gasoline" from the show Overhaulin", Kicking Harold has been delivering riff driven alternative rock from Los Angeles, CA since 1994. Starting with a traditional band format, Kicking Harold has slowly evolved into a solo project in the studio with founding member and singer-songwriter-producer, Tim David Kelly, playing all the instruments on every Kicking Harold album since 2010.
Kelly says, "I now look at Kicking Harold much as a painter looks at things. I go into my studio alone and come out with art that I have created with sound. It has become a very special, solitary process that I enjoy very much. This all started when I would work with other artists as a music producer. I was creating entire tracks myself for these artists to sing over and eventually this lead to doing the same thing with my own tracks. I would make demos with the intention of having the live band record them but they would come out sounding so good, I realized the tracks were done and the last step of rerecording them was not needed. I may go back to tracking with a band again at some point because there is a magic chemistry when certain players record together that is pretty special but for now I love the creative freedom of being a lone mad scientist in the studio."
Since 2019, Kelly has been releasing new KH singles every 1-2 months. The best of these singles will be included on Kicking Harold's 6th album. Stay tuned for more music and tours. To get notified, join the Kicking Harold email list.
