It's not often that you come across a group of musicians as diverse and rich in musical style, taste or substance like Kinetic Theory. "This group has it" touts John. Kinetic Theory has developed a sound and style they can truly call their own; be it power or grace, they seem to have the right sound for the right occasion. The old and the new are fused together with passionate performances, but this band sound is not married to the past or trying to predict the new trends of the future. To see them in live performance, you will immediately understand that Kinetic Theory immerses themselves in the present. Every rhythm played, note struck, melody created entices you to hear what's coming next.

Still in it's infancy as a group, Kinetic Theory debut their talent in August of 2015 at Refuge Live, and are on a fast track to becoming the next big sound to come out of Chicago. 

 

 

Mahmoud Khan, Terence Lee and Xazavian Valladay are the cornerstones of the group and it's vivid presence. "We're looking to find the truth in our music" explains Mahmoud Khan "and continue to push it's envelope".

“This group sound great”
— PJ MORTON
