Listen Up Kid

Dennis Clark fronts the edgy but melodic alt-rock outfit Listen Up Kid. Probably one of Kingston's most underrated indie bands—who've even had some chart success—so, if you ever get a chance to see Listen Up Kid perform live, don't pass it up.

"Listen Up Kid create elaborately layered melodies and poetic lyrics, both of which embody the essence alternative rock. In fact, they blow the genre defining elements out of the water by tossing in the odd splash of metal, pop, electronic influences. The result is something that you have never heard before."
- Samantha Stevens The Scene Magazine

Since their formation in 2012, Listen Up Kid has become a household name in the greater Kingston area, winning over every audience with energetic, honest performances and infectious sing alongs. The band has shared stages with radio giants such as USS, Dear Rouge, The Pack AD and Mounties.

"I loves the tunes, takes me back to the good ol' days of grungy pop with a nice modern fidelity. I love the chord progressions, especially "Affinity", really cool fresh vibe. The vocals are on point too."
- Quinn Allman (The Used)

The band's sophomore release, Minutiae, produced by Terry Benn (The Glorious Sons), first premiered through Exclaim! and has since been receiving regular plays on alternative rock stations such as Kingston's 98.9 The Drive, K-Rock 105.7 and Oshawa's 94.1 The Rock. The singles "Fanatic" and "Make Up" rotated heavily on national Canadian campus radio and in August, the EP entered the !Earshot National Top 50. "Minutiae" quickly found a spot in the Top 5, reaching #1 by October. It remained in the Top 50 for the rest of the year and charted in the National Top 200 overall for 2016.
