Sioux City Kid started off in a basement listening to old Son House, Gram Parsons and Rolling Stones records trying to pick out the tunes. These early beginnings led to an obsession with the creation of songs that carried him all over the country soaking up every influence he could find. After spending a year playing around London he found himself back in his hometown of San Francisco where over the next year a 7 piece band came to fruition. This band brings an expansive knowledge and craft to the evolution of the songs and have continued to evolve by playing countless shows and recording. Their first album, ‘Speak of the Devil, but Softly,’ is available on iTunes and Amazon, and they are currently raising money to record their second album, “Minutes, Miles, Troubles and Trials.”

Sioux City Kid has played at Shoreline Amphitheater, Great American Music Hall, The Independent, and other venues around the SF Bay Area. They have also performed throughout Southern California, Arizona, New Mexico and Texas, where they played at the 2011 SXSW Festival. They recently co-headlined at The Independent with the Ferocious Few.
