Talented Multi-instrumentalist from L.A , Meet – Cadence Kid


Multi-instrumentalist Cadence Kid, aka Jason Turbin, has returned just in time for the summer with his latest single Hold On Me, which is out now via My Music Mind.
Despite Turbin’s naturally introverted nature, Hold On Me breaks free from the shackles of any perceived reserved demeanour, offering an uplifting feel good anthem exploring themes of love, life and freedom. Showcasing his multi-faceted talent, Jason performs all of the instruments, excluding drums which are constructed by Grammy award winning producer Cassidy Turbin, including violin, viola, erhu, flute, recorder, trumpet, trombone, guitar, bass, mandolin, banjo, ukulele, harmonica, piano as well as vocals. Filled with a whimsical indie pop chorus, evoking comparisons with band such as Foster The People and Grouplove, the resultant single is the perfect companion to whiling away the long summer days.
With a strong background in classical music theory and orchestration, Turbin decided to focus on recording solo material throughout 2016. Returning to his roots as a singer/songwriter, the musician is currently in the studio with brother and producer Cassidy Turbin. Jason has also orchestrated and composed music for many films including Proxy, the NY Times critics choice Dementia, Oculus, Lynsanity, Pawn Shop Chronicles as well as Dream Theater’s number one album ‘The Astonishing’.
Cadence Kid has already received acclaim from various blogs including IX Daily, Purple Melon and I Heart Moosiq to name just a few and Jason is now eager to share his captivating, upbeat sound with a world-wide audience.

Meet – Cadence Kid

1) For those unfamiliar with your bands history, can you tell us all how you all met up and decided to start a band?
This year I decided to start recording some of my tunes and to see how it goes. So far I really like the process of playing all the instruments and getting to make all the decisions about what gets recorded and how it all ends up.

2) Who would you list as your musical influences?
It’s really endless. Beatles to Bach from Jazz to Classic Rock etc… I’m even into Barbershop singing.

3) What’s the coolest thing that’s happened to you as a band since you started up?

So far I really had an awesome time learning how to use Final Cut Pro (film editing software) to make my latest music video.

4) What are your hopes and dreams as a band for the next few years?

I hope to learn more and challenge myself as an artist. Regardless of “success” if I’m learning something new in music or art it keeps me happy with it all and less concentrated on “making it” in the industry.

5) What are some of your favorite albums from the past few years?

I’m a little biased because I did all the orchestrations for it but I really enjoyed “The Astonishing” by Dream Theater.

6) Do you see any real use for social media, or is it all just a pain in the ass to keep with?

When it comes to social media, I’m a bit of a grandpa of sorts and always fall behind on the latest thing or app. I do see the value for an artist and so I’m working on getting better at using it.

7) Do you pay attention to reviews or comments from people about your music or do you just turn that noise off?

I do. I think it’s interesting to read. You can agree or disagree with something someone says of course. There’s no harm in it.

8) If you could tour anywhere in the world, where would you want to go?

I’ve been to Machu Picchu and that was amazing! I’d like to see the other wonders of the world.

9) Can music save the mortal soul or is just a good backbeat to your life?

I sure hope so! 🙂

10) Any last thoughts for your fans?

Live long and prosper and don’t forget to like this page:
