He is difficult to place. A slave to the groove, his voice booms and inspires a shudder. Smoothly, it softens as if to say, "everything is just fine", arousing a unanimous purr throughout the audience. A natural songbird who's songs run melancholic. A showman who's moves set your day aflame. A spastic rocker turned tender crooner. That's Kian McCollum. Kian writes and performs his own original material as well as popular covers from artists such as The Beatles, Taylor Swift, Creedence Clearwater Revival, Barenaked Ladies, Gnarls Barkley, Beyonce, Elton John, The Foundations, John Legend, etc. Influences include: Iron&Wine, Beck, David Byrne, Laura Marling, Stevie Wonder, Dr. John, and Paul McCartney.
