KBD is a trio of experimental musicians who have been playing together since 2006. Its members are Michael Kimaid -drums and electronics, Gabriel Beam- guitar and electronics, and Ryan Dohm- trumpet and electronics.
In 2007, KBD released their debut full length: [four plus one], on the Eh? Music Label. Although Ryan Dohm moved to Los Angeles a year later, they maintain a musical relationship based on those first formative years together. Not long after Dohm’s departure, Kimaid and Beam carried on and continue to play as KBD(uo), releasing an EP called Candid on FTAM and follow up full length on Eh?, Any Port In A Storm. In 2013, KBD(uo)released a DVD entitled Drop The Remainder on the New Orleans based multimedia label The Language Foundry, and a cassette release entitled Loss/Gain on the RCN label from Akron, Ohio. In the meantime, they have released a slew of independent releases available in limited runs at their shows.
In 2014, KBD returns as a full trio for an East Coast Summer tour.
