Animalwax

Born in Decatur, GA - Animalwax (Kimble McCann) grew up around a rich mix of sights and sounds. From post-punk, African, and indie in Little 5-Points to electro-underground raves at Samson St. warehouse parties, Atlanta soon became the ATL. Durting this time as a young one, Kimble haunted local record stores (Wax-n-Facts, Criminal Records, and Wuxtry), exploring all genres and eras of music that he could get his hands and ears into. After borrowing cd's and an acoustic from his uncle, Kimble soon took up guitar learning jazz chords and preferring alternate tunings. He then left for college at the University of Georgia, in Athens, GA, home to countless bands, venues and festivals. There, immersed himself into the the community indie film scene (Flickr) thrift shops, and local video stores, while also acquiring his first 4-track recorder. After finally graduating from his extended undergraduate career, Kimble threw as many guitars, pedals, keys, and amps into his car, driving from Athens to Los Angeles where he became a teacher and joined several projects. In the Unholy Butcher Duo and Marfa Lights, Kimble and his bandmates often played at the Smell, the Oxford Pink Palace, and several dives between Hollywood, Echo Park, Eagle Rock, and Silverlake for several years. Soon, Kimble heard the call of PhD program in educational technology, with the need to work on individual projects, and relocated to Honolulu, HI. Kimble resides in HNL to date, and while pursuing and finishing his doctoral studies, he adopted the pseudonym Animalwax. He has just recently released his first album "Animalwaxxx" as an independent artist. Aloha, enjoy, & more to come!
