The guitar-driven, indie rock / dream pop act HotKid is the work of Canadian producer / songwriter / lead guitarist Shiloh Harrison. Harrison’s soothing vocal delivery and ability to write enduring pop songs has helped nurture a cult fan base around the globe.
In March 2022, HotKid debuted a new 4 piece grunge/ pop live band while on tour with indie icons, and label mates, By Divine Right. To date, HotKid has shared stages across Canada and the US with the likes of Sloan, July Talk and Dilly Dally, as well as performing at notable festivals such as NXNE, CMW and Riverfest Elora.
Singles “Letter” and “Mirror Mirror” from HotKid’s latest album Truth or Deceiver (Oct. 2021) received steady air play on CBC3, satellite radio, college radio, and garnered commercial radio attention.
