firekid in-store performance

You might have seen firekid open up for Leon Bridges at Bottletree earlier this year! Come check out a FREE in-store performance before his show at Workplay later in the evening.

Born out of Muscle Shoals, Alabama, firekid is the brainchild of virtuouso guitarist and singer Dillon Hodges. A child prodigy at guitar, Dillon won the National Guitar Championship at the age of 17, the 2nd youngest person to ever win the competion. After attending college in Alabama, Dillon moved to Nashville to work on music that could help him grow from the confines of the Bluegrass world to hitting a bigger audience, and firekid was born. Returning to his roots, firekid recorded the debut album in Muscle Shoals with the help of producer and songrwiter Sam Hollander (The Fray, Train), who took Dillon’s natural musicality and helped shape a record that combined the country roots that Dillon knew and the bigger record he knew the band had in them. firekid has since signed to Atlantic Records and has been touring, building a base in the south and working to release the first full length album coming late Spring 2015.
