Kings Kaleidoscope’s Chad Gardner: Turning apathy to art

May 8, 2020

It's not often that you put indie-rock star and third-generation church leader in the same sentence, but there's nothing kosher about the way Kings Kaleidoscope's Chad Gardner works, not, at least when it comes to creating worship music. In a desperate search for 'realness' in faith and following deep personal reflection on his battle with his mental health, Seattle-based front-man Chad (and his band of friends) released their fifth studio album, Zeal - a controversial mixtape of hip-hop beats, head-swinging guitar riffs and an 'f bomb-ing' prayer that ultimately encapsulates the honest ups and down of one man rediscovering child-like faith.
