Based in Ocean Beach CA, Purple Kief started out as a few friends having jam sessions in a small apartment. In time, the jam sessions became song writing sessions and a distinctive sound began to emerge.
Purple Kief's uniqueness comes from the diverse and various backgrounds of its members;
A Pacific North West metal/hardcore drummer, Brad Boswell, an East Coast Hip Hop artist on bass Java, a San Diego sax virtuoso whose melodies are rooted in jazz, John "Rusty" Avery and a local guitarist that has played in several post rock/math rock bands in San Diego, Kenny Schulte.
