About Simple Kid

Ciaran McFeely started off in a band formed with school mates in Cork called 'The Young Offenders' but they didn't go anywhere. After spending some time in USA he moved to London where he started recording under the name Simple Kid. His sound is a modern take on folk music like what you might get if you crossed Beck with Neil Young. Simple Kid released his debut album entitled '1' in 2003 (2004 in US). He had a top 40 hit in the UK with 'Truck On'.

After vanishing from the radar for awhile, Simple Kid returned in 2006 with release of the double A side single 'The Ballad Of Elton John'/'Serotonin' followed by his second album, logically titled '2', in October 2006 (released August 2007 in US).

I really liked the song from Simple Kid here and all the stuff on MySpace sounds really good, good lead to a CD purchase. He has a very professional MySpace site and has done out his main website in the same style, worth checking out.
