Kid Dakota

Bio

Kid Dakota is the musical appelation of Minneapolis-based, South Dakota bred songwriter Darren Jackson. Originally forming in 1999 with 12 Rods drummer Christopher McGuire, the duo's dark, brooding, confessional, hard-hitting music connected immediately with an audience, leading the duo to much acclaim and the attention of indie rock darlings Low, who would end up helping Kid Dakota release their first two records. Through ensuing albums and personnel changes, Jackson's visceral songwriting vision has served as the constant and center.
