Dallas emcee and Atlanta resident, Shane Kidd has been in the game for over a decade now creating uplifting and thought-provoking music.
In the 2010s, Shane released two albums, ‘Student of Life’ and ‘Learn to Live’, that both showed Kidd’s raw talent and care for the listener. Shane Kidd can spit with the best of them but it’s the message he wants you to walk away with. Throughout his career, Shane’s worked with some of the greats in Sho Baraka, K-Drama, DJ Aslan, and others. After a hiatus brought on by depression and writer’s block, Kidd is back with newfound freedom and a brand new record in Good Mourning.
Good Mourning is the tale of two halves.
On one side, Shane Kidd lets us right into the feelings and emotions he dealt with during his hiatus.
“The album was inspired by realizing I had to grieve the loss of my old life,” Kidd says.
Tracks like “Shadowboxing” show a vulnerable Shane Kidd going through the process and journey of loss, sometimes questioning himself and the path set before him. It’s not all doom and gloom though because after the rain comes sunshine and the Texas artist lets the listener know that there’s hope. “Joyful Rebellion” sees Shane Kidd team up with J.Crum on a groovy jam with uplifting lyrics adding another dimension to the realities we’re all dealing with.
Shane Kidd looks to relate and connect with the listener and Good Mourning expresses this on a deeper level. Life is full of transformation and Shane Kidd gives us a direct peek into his throughout the 10-track LP.
