Kiefer - Happy Sad

by Kiefer


Los Angeles musician Kiefer Shackelford is only 26, but the pianist and producer's soulful beat music is already garnering a loyal fan base. His debut record KickinIt Alone (released 2017 via Stones Throw's experimental Leaving Records imprint) won fans at Pitchfork and the BBC, and earned a Best Jazz Album nomination from A2IM. His debut for Stones Throw, Happysad, follows up Kickinit Alone with a collection of beautiful standalone instrumentals that showcase both Kiefer's piano chops and knack for improvisation, sequenced into what he describes as an 'emotional journal.' An artist who thrives on collaboration, Kiefer has quietly lent his production talents to an array of musicians including Kaytranada and Anderson .Paak; shared the stage with the likes of Moses Sumney, and played in Terrace Martin and Mndsgn's live groups. Kiefer's fans have grown to love not only his music but also the accessible online community he's created.
