Kyle MacLeod

Son Of Ugly is a Brighton-based instrumental 5-piece, formed by multi-instrumentalist and composer Kyle Macleod in 2016. Born from a love of film soundtracks, B-movie sci-fi and 60's cartoons, Son Of Ugly created their own brand of music. The band's epic, theatrical style of cinematic rock, pulverizes you one moment and caresses you the next, with each song taking you on a different journey as the lead character in an ever-evolving soundscape. Kyle Macleod's synths and effects add a dynamic element to the music that can inflict punishing terror one minute and antiquated beauty the next, with a side-helping of kooky 60's lounge organs, and pervy kazoo

All About Jazz needs your support

All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
