Still working on that hot first release.



Kool HeaD started life in 2011 when members Brandon McMichael (Kayos) (vocals/writer) and Jason Nitti (production/writer)'s former band Ugly People disbanded. The group hails from Atlanta, Georgia/Brooklyn, New York, and after getting a wave of interest via their bandcamp.com page this past summer; they began working with Alien Records, Inc. Management (Le Castlevania, Bomshell) in July 2012 and signed to Allright Music Publishing/Shapiro Bernstein (David Guetta, Lady Gaga, Metallica, Celine Dion) in October 2012.

The publishing deal coincided with the band offering up their “Black Wave” EP as a free download via the website www.koolhead.bandcamp.com. This eight song EP consists of the bands' recordings of ‘Leon’, 'Stick Up Kids', ‘Like a Drunk’, ‘Trans Am’, ‘Pills and Red Wine‘, ‘Sunny’s Room’, ‘Ryan Gosling’, and ‘Fame’.

The results post Kool HeaD as a unique antidote to everything packaged and poised in the current world of Electronic/Pop Music by carving out a new genre within it called Black Wave. Several different well-known international DJs from Amsterdam, Italy and France were so impressed in the band’s first single ‘Leon’, that it is being re-mixed for club and radio mix-show play.

Kool HeaD’s songs are nostalgic, poppy, dance-able, and wittingly deep. Whether they are about chasing dying romances (‘Sunny’s Room’), middle-finger-in the air controversial funk (‘Trans Am’) or angst-riddled anthems for a lost generation (‘Stick Up Kids’), Kool HeaD tackles these themes with unabashed catchiness in a Black Wave soundscape.
