Unique point of view leads to powerful new music from KidHeFears
ATLANTA, GA – With influences from his mother’s Indo-Caribbean culture and his father’s English-Canadian heritage, Jason Elijah Turner is the kind of original artist who’s sound only comes around once in a lifetime. Performing under the stage name KidHeFears, this fresh artist from Atlanta, Georgia has developed a unique sound and style that’s unlike anything else out there right now.
KidHeFears is a name that nods to all the children who had absentee fathers during their youth – and this young artist uses that name as a way to celebrate the unique perspective of his life. Living on both sides of the border, KidHeFears finds inspiration from the fusion of Deep South mixed with Upper Northeast, Caribbean and strong Atlanta-based trap vibe– and his distinctive sound is perfectly revealed in his new single “Link,” which dropped March 8. The chill tone of the song couples perfectly with a bouncy beat and a hook that listeners won’t be able to get out of their heads.
“The lyrics talk about a newly discovered love interest … that feeling you get when you link up with someone for the first time,” KidHeFears said. “That’s what I’m trying to capture with this; and like most of my songs, there is vulnerability and telling my truth.”
KidHeFears said ultimately, that’s what he wants to be known for as an artist – someone who always brings the reality and truth of his life and never tries to misrepresent himself. His music is pulled from his life and his experiences, and the lyrics are all transparent looks at the loves and losses of his world.
“That’s how the name KidHeFears came about,” he said. “I wanted to have a name that gave people the closest look into me as possible. I had father figures in my life but they were never really there for me. My biological father at first was there, but my parents split when I was 4 years old and he was gone. My stepfather came along after that but he didn’t do much, either. Both had a chance to be a parent but they were scared to step up to that responsibility. In my opinion, they feared it.”
KidHeFears has announced the upcoming release of his first project an EP titled, “YYZATL”, which is expected to drop May 3rd, 2019. To listen to KidHeFear’s music or to follow him on social media, please visit:
