Right On, Kid! Bio:
Right On, Kid! had humble beginnings as an acoustic project formed in 2014 by friends Zach Rose and Nick Encinias. Zach and Nick wrote several songs and performed at various shows around Albuquerque. Their style was a catchy pop punk flavor, raw and unapologetic. Gaining attention and popularity the guys decided to put together a full band and added a drummer and added to their visibility in the local underground music scene. In the summer of 2015 ROK added RJ Butler on lead guitar and Tieler Cooper on bass guitar. As a full 5 piece band the group began writing music for their debut EP “On The Brighter Side of Things” which was released in April of 2016. The group toured the Southwest and Northwest in support of the new album.
In the Fall of 2016 the original drummer left the band and the guys added Elijah Pomerleau to handle the driving pop punk rhythms for the band as they began to write music for the next EP. While the band’s first EP was flavored more like the past music of their Pop Punk influences, the upcoming album shows off their own unique style and addition to the mainstream genre. Recorded at Duke City Sound in Albuquerque, their sophomore Album ”Forever Missing Out“ pre production by David Dominguez (Weezer, The Offspring, GnR, Queen Latifa, and Warrior Records) Mixed by Seth Henderson (Knuckle Puck, Sleep On It, Hold Close, Belmont) and mastered by Kris Crummett (Sleeping with Sirens, Man Overboard, Dance Gavin Dance, Jonny Craig).
The highly anticipated release is scheduled for spring, 2018.
