Joshua Guthals

Joshua Aaron Guthals relocated from San Francisco to Brooklyn in 2005 and created Kind Monitor (or KM). From an initial gig at a private art party in Sunset Park, a slew of shows followed at New York's indie-rock hotspots, including Pete's Candy Store, Joe's Pub, and the Zipper Factory. These shows met ardent response from artists and intellectuals who saw something of themselves in this delicate rock music; recently, the publication Creative Loafing described Kind Monitor as an "Emily Dickinson of indie pop-rock." Somebody Saves My Life Most Every Single Day gathers KM's most enjoyed live music together on recording.
