by lead vocalist Timmy Perez.

Timmy was born and raised in Los Angeles, CA. With an
obsession for great vocal harmony, he is also an established professional
drummer, having shared the stage with humongous acts such as
Rihanna, INXS and Nick Lachey. He also served as musical director
for BLU and the “No York” tour in 2010. It was during that tour that Timmy mentally envisioned what is now the sound projected through KM as a live band.

With the production help and masterful keyboard arrangements of
best friend, Todd Soto (formerly of Long Beach Hip-Hop group Glory For The People), they independently wrote, produced, and recorded KM’s debut EP, “TO THE AM”, which was released in the fall of 2014.
While “TO THE AM”, was recorded live by both Timmy and
Todd, specific musicians were cast to fill selective musical roles.
The band consists of guitarist Dave Sherman (also a member of former Long Beach residents Audible Mainframe), Drummer Freddie Price, Bassist Aaron Peterson and DJ Cordell Kelly, aka DJ Space.

In addition to having the honor of performing at the legendary, soon-to-be-closed House of Blues in Los Angeles, KM has built a following through ferocious performances at Long Beach venues such as The Gaslamp and Alex’s Bar. They are also part of a brand new artist collective based in Long Beach called “NOSO” (Nobody’s Sober), with an art gallery opening to the public soon.
The only rule… No rules at a KM show!
