SXSW 2014 Showcasing Artist Kydd Jones

Born and raised in Austin, TX, Randell Jones (aka "Kydd" Jones) is no stranger to music and is hailed for his lyrical ingenuity. Music was his first love as a child and soon took center stage; being the second oldest out of eight siblings, his mind and his music matured faster than most would expect. As a talented rapper and outstanding singer-songwriter, his uniquely lyrical yet catchy compositions cross the borders of both R&B and hiphop with influences from artists such as UGK, MF DOOM, Jay-Z, Lauren Hill, J-Dilla, Kanye West, Nas and A Tribe Called Quest.

Kydd is a four-time SXSW Showcase artist, performing in 2012 at the XXL SXSW Showcase; at A3C 2012 in Atlanta for Red Bull Soundstage; and was selected to perform at Pop Montreal and FunFunFunFest in 2013. He has toured numerous times, including The Red Bull Skooled Tour, LRG Homegrown Tour, Yelawolf Texas Tour, Big Sean College Tour, Sneaker Pimps Tour, The Return of Screw York City Tour, The Cool Kids Southwest Tour, and The HipHopGods Tour in Los Angeles through Red Bull Soundstage. He has also become an established producer, having produced tracks featuring artists such as Kirko Bangz, Noah23, Killa Kyleon, Roosh Williams, Yves (of The Niceguys) as well as others.
