Adopted Kids is a collaboration between five talented songwriters and multi-instrumentalists from San Antonio, TX. All prolific musicians, Adopted Kids members have founded and created for projects leading them to play alongside bands such as Mutemath, Girl in a Coma, Lonely Horse, The March Divide; at venues such as Sam's Music Hall, Josabi's Amphitheater, The Cameo Theatre, Jack's Patio Bar, and Paper Tiger in San Antonio, as well as Radio Coffee & Bar, and Empire Control Room in Austin.

The band released a demo album in December of 2017, and plan to release a full length album in the fall of 2018. Adopted Kids is an energetic experience, with lively performances and storytelling, accompanied of course by their setlist going from raucous and jubilant to sweet and balladic. With influences such as Bob Dylan, Dr. Dog, The Beatles, Ryan Adams, David Ramirez, and Dry the River, the band creates a unique soundscape filled with beautifully classic melodies, and heartfelt lyrics.

Although during sets, the members switch instruments with extreme skill, the band mainly consists of:

Jonathan Russell - Vocals, Acoustic, Electric  
Brandon Padier - Vocals, Electric
Will Chappell - Vocals, Bass

Levi Travieso - Drums
Micah Leaverton - Vocals, Synths, Keys



The nostalgic, reverb laced guitar with his vocals sounds great. What I wasn’t expecting was the synths which somehow work way more than they should... Overall, there are a lot of impressive moments on this album which hint at a boatload of potential. I have a feeling this artist is just getting started.

Can’t get over the fact that this was released out of nowhere for free - haven’t heard an indie rock album this good in years. Refreshing is the word I would use for this one.
