Kid’s son Youngr to play NYC

The Kid’s youngest son Youngr to play the Kid’s hometown New York City this week!


The Kid’s youngest son, artist Youngr, who is currently on tour round the U.S. is set to play Le Poisson Rouge in Manhattan this coming Thursday March 30th. He brings along his also very talented older brother Lorne Ashley who plays guitar and bass with Youngr’s band.
Youngr became known when his first hit single was released called ‘Out of My System‘. Youngr became an internet video sensation for his fabulous live performances of his songs where he builds the track in one take. He went on to get signed by Island Records who also signed Kid Creole and the Coconuts in their heyday. History repeats itself.


The Kid smiles from ear to ear to see his sons following in the footsteps of him and his elder brother Stony Browder.
He couldn’t be more proud.
Elder son Lorne Ashley also has a very cool band called Stony Browder Jr who regularly gig around the U.K. and Europe.
