Artist Bio

Kit Center has been odd his whole life. Maybe it starts with a name. As a child he lived in buses, garages, trailers and attics. He began recording at the age of 6 on his father's Tascam tape machine and has been at it ever since. As an adult he traveled restlessly across the continent, eventually finding a home in Oakland, California where he continues to write and record.

Over the last decade, his musical projects have included The Brothers Amor, The Hollow Bones, The Lovewells, and Moses Cadillac. The common thread in all his music is a slow groove; whether it's psych folk or stoner rap, it's generally going to be around 82 bpm. Most recently Kit has been creating music under his own name - it's a continuation of his love affair with songwriting, recorded under the influence of many different muses.

He also runs a small analog studio in Oakland, is a co-founder of the Long Road Society record label, and co-hosts Run With The Moon, a live music showcase at Starline Social Club, every full moon.
