Queer Interlude - 2017 Single



Currently based in North Texas, Kilo (age 19) is an independent artist (and student) working as a musician, drag performer, activist, and YouTube personality. (Kilo also broadcasts on where they have 20,000 followers) They are Agender and use They/Them/Theirs pronouns. 

The Werkshøp is a collective of artists who collaborate with Mx. Kilo to form a group. Mainly comprised of dancers, the Werkshøp is dedicated to putting on alternative and experimental performances.

Classically trained in Piano (6 years) and Clarinet (9 years), Kilo's upbringing was heavily based on classical composers and jazz standards, but their first individual interaction with electronic music was Lady GaGa's the Fame at the age of 11. Since then they have drawn inspiration from the aesthetic of GaGa and her ability to create an experience for the audience rather than just a live performance.

Kilo also was heavily involved in marching band at L.D. Bell High School, where the concept, and execution of a complicated idea was performed and experienced by not only the band, but also the audience. 

They also participated in the International Baccalaureate program and earned the diploma, taking IB Dance to explore their interest in creative movement at school in order to avoid protest from their conservative parents. 

Expressing their queerness and journey through their own music didn't start out until after Kilo tried going to University for Political Science in Washington, D.C.. (The culmination of an International Baccalaureate Diploma, starting a non-profit for queer youth in North Texas, and a desire to make changes for others at the policy level.)

Ultimately rejecting the notion that they have to be conventionally successful was the turning point for them creatively. They volunteered and attended SXSW 2016, and it was the actual inspiration for becoming a different kind of musician. 

"[SXSW] was what really opened my eyes to the way the industry works, and that I, a measly 18 year old with a keyboard, a laptop, and a lot of glitter could make it."

They started regularly uploading YouTube videos at SXSW as well and broadcasting on in June, where they have ammassed over 20,000 followers.

Mx. Kilo performs currently performs genderqueer Drag and in Dallas weekly and music at local bars and clubs in the area.
