Best known for the hit song "Gasoline" from the show Overhaulin", Kicking Harold has been delivering riff driven alternative rock from Los Angeles, CA since 1994.
Starting with a traditional band format, Kicking Harold has slowly evolved into a solo project in the studio with founding member and singer-songwriter-producer, Tim David Kelly, playing all the instruments on every Kicking Harold album since 2010.
Kelly says, "I now look at Kicking Harold much as a painter looks at things. I go into my studio alone and come out with art that I have created with sound. It has become a very special, solitary process that I enjoy very much. This all started when I would work with other artists as a music producer. I was creating entire tracks myself for these artists to sing over and eventually this lead to doing the same thing with my own tracks. I would make "demos" with the intention of having the live band record them but they would come out sounding so good, I realized the tracks were done and the last step of rerecording them was not needed. I may go back to tracking with a band again at some point because there is a chemistry when certain players record together that is pretty special but for now I love the creative freedom of being a lone mad scientist in the studio."
When playing live, Kelly has been joined by Michael Odabashian on drums and Julia Lage on bass since 2015.
