Kielen King originally from Saginaw, MI and currently residing in the Portland, OR area, gravitated to music at a young age and after seeing Run D.M.C.
in Krush Groove, he knew he wanted to be making music. While in high school, he found a couple of like-minded friends and formed a hip hop group together. Years later, he got a start in the industry when a local guitarist, A.G. Donnaloia, gave him some opportunities with cameo appearances rapping during the band Grooveyard’s stage shows around Portland, OR.
Kielen’s compositions often carry a dark, melodic sound which often ventures into aggressive and sinister. The influence of hip-hop music is clearly evident by his use of aggressive drum tracks to complement his instrumentation.
Kielen has released 10 albums, Addicted to Blue (as Azure Noir) • Soundtrack for an Automated Night • Soundtrack for an Automated Night II • Don’t Touch the Mask (El Luchador Negro) • Star Pilot's Lament • Star Pilot's Revenge • Star Pilot's Demesne • 8-bit Ships • Warmusic (Preytorians) • & Nathan Dunbar’s ‘Nightlife’.
Kielen’s goal is to carve out a niche with non-traditional hip-hop fans that exist adjacent to the Nerdcore genre. He also wants to be known for his unique compositions and willingness to color outside the lines of traditional subject matter. Kielen continues to make music because he loves the feeling it gives him when he is working on a composition along with the unequaled rush he gets from performing for others.
