Have you heard of Chi-Town’s funktastic 8-piece collective known as Kids These Days?
The group recently dropped their Hard Times EP (available on iTunes) featuring three horns, a rapper, a blues-rock trio and charismatic vocalist. Together, they cover every corner of the music spectrum sporting a hybrid genre of jazz, funk, blues, soul and hip-hop.
Kids These Days poured their creative and musical juices into the same Kool-Aid pitcher at the ripe young age of 15, when they met through a magnet school in their hometown. They have shared the stage with noted hip-hop artists Rhymefest, the Cool Kids, Mic Terror and Dom Kennedy.
