Family bands are known for having incredible harmonic vocals, unmatched appearances, and the ability to beat the shit out of each other and still remain in tact. Migrant Kids, formed by two cousins Miguel Ojeda and John Zakoor, is no exception. The cousins have been playing music together for fifteen years. They moved to Austin, TX by way of Detroit, MI to join forces with the talented Bryan O'Flynn, another midwestern native from Cincinnati, OH. The trio has been non-stop touring, writing and following their collective dream ever since their debut album was released in 2013. Migrant Kids were named Best New Band by the Austin Chronicle, Artist of the Month by The Austin Music Foundation, were featured nationwide on an episode of PBS' Arts In Context, and were a Black Fret large grant recipient. All Things Go has categorized Migrant Kids' music "in that sweet spot between rock and pop...with simmering post-rock riffs and a pounding backbeat[s]."
