kidDEAD Ross Norton Nashville, United States Kid Dead (Ross Norton) Raised on the south side of Tallahassee, FL, KidDead found music as an escape early on, from beginnings in a drug and alcohol fueled environment. He quickly learned about the dark side of the American Dream through cathartic expression in break dancing, graffiti, punk-rock, and rap. After years cruising the east coast, KidDead moved to Nashville and found Simian, forming LOTH. With dark and emotional influences like Cage, Slug, and Biggie, KidDead writes his skewed vision of life, death, and hip-hop. Even through aimless wandering in communes and flop-houses, KidDead has kept the love alive.
