Description

Raised in the outskirts of Paris, his career has embraced music, fashion and film and established Kiddy as a key figure in Paris's LGBTQ community and the voguing and ballroom scenes.

Working as a fashion stylist and club night host, he was asked to develop Balmain's sound identity which led to further collaborations with the likes of Balenciaga and Versace. Two well-received singles" Teardrops in The Box" and "Let A Bitch Know" released; Defected set the musical template for his first album 'One Trick Pony'.

'One Trick Pony' sees Kiddy working with such talents as Rouge Mary (Hercules & Love Affair) Be Honest, Burn The House Down & e Friend and Crookers Dickmatized. Citing gospel and hip-hop, 90s Chicago and Detroit as influences, Kiddy has delivered an album with house DNA at it's core whilst embracing a pop sensibility. It explores intimate, personal topics unrequited love, paternal desertion and acceptance of e's body.

"I define myself as a house-music artist. Queer is limiting. My music reflects my everyday life. I talk about me and being black and gay. My songs are about love. They're not political, but my work is."
