We are a Canadian music production and songwriting team founded by Nathan Kidd in 2012. We specialize in creating commercially viable pop, country, and rock music for artists, singers, songwriters, and brands. Our team is comprised mainly of Nathan Kidd and co-producer David Stoten… both being seasoned multi-instrumentalists, we have extensive practice and experience in several aspects of the music industry, including related industries like music video production.
Prior to producing, we were writing songs and performing in our own rock band for about 10 years. We had great opportunities touring all over Canada... playing everything from small town dive bar gigs, to massive outdoor festivals with big name headliners such as Korn, Three Days Grace, and Loverboy. We had our songs played on mainstream radio stations across Canada, as well as songs accepted by Crucial Music for film and TV placement. In the studio we worked with and learned from several industry pros including Mike Fraser (AC/DC, Chickenfoot, Van Halen), Jeff Dawson (Daniel Powter, State of Shock), and Bill Kennedy (Nine Inch Nails, Motley Crue, Megadeth). In 2012 we decided to take what we learned working with them, and start our own music production team.
Artists that have worked with our team have achieved nationwide mainstream radio success, have had songs placed on TV programs like CBC’s prized Hockey Night In Canada, and have won several awards. We have also worked with brands such as the Edmonton International Film Festival. As a “just for fun” project, we created our own music video based comedy/pop project called “BuckNKD”, with which our first video release quickly garnered over 30 000 YouTube views.
We believe that working together as a team is always greater than working individually, and most importantly, we firmly believe that creating music should be a FUN experience!
