Self-taught 23-year-old Canadian born singer, writer, and producer BAD CHILD is looking to come to terms with his childhood and his upbringing. After losing his mother at a young age and dealing with heartbreak, he sought refuge from the world in music. Since then he's been breaking new ground with his genre bending and distinguished sound palette.
BAD CHILD released his thematic debut EP “Sign Up” last summer with Universal Music Canada/21 Entertainment alongside Virgin Records in the UK and Capitol Records stateside. He quickly became one of Canada’s most exciting exports; profiled in:
BAD CHILD’s“Candy”, featuring Ryan Chambers, was included on the soundtrack for the highly publicizedNetflix film, To All The Boys: P.S. I Still Love You. The only Canadian to be featured on the album which includes tracks from Sofi Tukker, Marina, Gordi and more.Last year,BAD CHILD’s single “Blood” was featured in a global Apple Watch campaign. Back in Canada, his first radio single “Breathing Fire” peaked at top five on alternative radio and was nominated for a 2019SOCANSongwriting Prize alongside Dilly Dally, grandson and Kaytranda. BAD CHILD teamed up with fellow Canadians Justin Bieber, Geddy Lee, Avril Lavigne, Walk Off The Earth and many more on a Bill Withers cover of the classic “Lean On Me” for the historic airing ofStronger Together Tous Ensemble, a broadcast event paying tribute to frontline health workers and raising funds for Food Banks Canada in the early stages of the COVID-19 pandemic.
BAD CHILD spent the last year reflecting on the music that shaped him; releasing a COVERS EP that included his own interpretations on songs byBill Withers, Soundgarden and The Chamber Brothers. As well, he flexed the production side of his artistry, experimenting with new sounds and instruments on his own tracks and collaborations.
BAD CHILD’s eccentric music and unique vision landed him on an impressive festival circuit in 2019 including sets at Lollapalooza, Glastonbury, Reading & Leeds, Osheaga.
