Kiser is an Alternative rock band from Atlanta, GA. Fronted by siblings and backed by a powerful rhythm section, their energetic live show continues to captivate audiences, and Kiser has proven itself a major player in the Atlanta industry. The band began performing in Spring 2015, and by January 2016, Kiser won the Atlanta Battle of the Bands at the Masquerade hosted by the largest booking agency for local bands in the United States, Gorilla Music. Kiser has headlined events at some of the most famous venues in Atlanta, including Smith's Olde Bar and the Masquerade, headlined Atlanta festivals like the X-Plode Festival, continually sells out shows in the metro-Atlanta area, and has opened for bands like The Alan Parsons Project.
Kiser's roots began with Aundie Kiser, mother of Christian and Melody Kiser. Aundie played music constantly while her children were growing up, and she herself performed music with various bands during her youth. Her children also began their musical careers at a young age. Christian Kiser, lead guitarist and singer, has performed with various musical acts throughout Georgia and has had a successful solo career as a guitarist and violinist. Melody Kiser, guitarist, saxophonist, and singer, began her professional musical career at age 12. She began posting YouTube videos at the same age and continues to gain thousands of fans internationally.
Kiser's original music gathers inspiration from bands like Foo Fighters, Mumford & Sons, and Heart, yet Kiser's music has an original sound. Tim Hurd, talent buyer for the Masquerade and local radio DJ, claims that the band is "not afraid to break the mold, defy the norm, and bring a refreshing sound to the forefront." Kiser released their first EP, On the Road, in September of 2018.
