Bio

The band Kenji Urada is the result of over 14 years of writing, recording, traveling and, oh, lot's of mistakes, too.

Principle songwriter and guitarist, John Fossum, grew up in Chippewa Falls, WI—a child of the '90s. As a teen he saved up enough summer wages for a cheap electric guitar and quickly began recording short low-fi songs.

After moving around the Midwest and Texas, John decided that Brooklyn, NY was the place to try his hand at music. As luck would have it, the talented bassist Nick Barry and majestic vocalist Erin Willis fell from the sky into his lap. Drummer Jordan Alexander filled out the lineup and the band was complete.

Kenji Urada LP, the band's first full-length album, was self released and debuted live on June 1st, 2012 at King Killer Studios in Gowanus, Brooklyn. The album was inspired by three years of gigging, living, loving, bicycle wrecks and broken bones—enough was enough—it was time to record an album.

Kenji Urada is currently gigging in New York (Glasslands, Nov 2nd) and will be on a brief Midwest tour this winter culminating in an 'End of the World Party' at the Tomahawk Room in Chippewa Falls, WI, December 21st, 2012.
