Sounds of Silent Bloom EP is now out!
I was hoping it would coincide with the end of Winter but she's a stormy mistress out there today. Ah well, can't plan these things.
Everything you hear is written, recorded and produced by myself.
Mastering is by the ever reliable Marsden Mastering www.philipmarsdenmusic.com (Instagram: @marsdenmastering) making it the first EP I've ever had professionally mastered, you can certainly hear the difference!
The artwork is courtesy of the beautiful wilds of Donegal.

New Video for "Catching Buses" is out now!
They told me I was crazy. They said I couldn't make a video so low budget that the budget was non-existent.
I said we can go lower.
And here we have the video for Catching Buses. AKA, "How Many Copyright Strikes Can I Get?"
Let me know if you can spot any references you know!
New Single "Catching Buses" is out now!
Craic! First of all folks, happy new year to you, hope you've kept well and been dodging the big C. I for one am choosing to enter 2022 with an optimistic mindset, and to help me do that I've released my first song of the year, 'Catching Buses'!
It's very much the anti-procrastination song. Musically it belongs in the world of the indie rock (think The Strokes, Franz Ferdinand) and with any luck it'll get ya bouncin'.
Written, recorded and mixed by myself and mastered again by the top man: www.philipmarsdenmusic.com

"Wrong Foot Forward" is out now!
“WRONG FOOT FORWARD is OUT NOW! ALL CAPS AND LOTS OF EXCLAMATION MARKS!!!
Just some of the ways I can channel my emotions at this finally being out.
Written, recorded and mixed by myself and mastered by the top man: www.philipmarsdenmusic.com

About Kid Apollo
Kid Apollo is a solo artist hailing from Derry, Ireland. He writes, records and produces all his music from a beat-up laptop in a cramped bedroom.
The Derry artist blends many genres and styles of music together in order to match his creative vision. No two songs are the same, yet each carry an unmistakable flow and melodic drive that Kid Apollo is making into his very own sound.
In a short amount of time, Kid Apollo's music has found its way on to various Spotify playlists, Reddit front pages and, although slightly reluctant to admit it, several TikToks. Beginning a solo career in 2020 wasn't easy, but for him it was worth the journey. In 2021, Kid Apollo hopes that he can bring his music to a wider (and hopefully live) audience and expand his musical repertoire even further.
