After over a decade in the music business, 604 Record’s Kadooh is taking things in a whole new direction and stepping into the spotlight for the first time. Known as the guitarist and backing vocalist of JUNO nominated/multi-platinum rock band State of Shock, the musician has always carried with him an appreciation for all genres of music — and now he’s ready to take it back to his roots.
Growing up in small-town Alberta, Kadooh remembers a time where Charley Pride and Conway Twitty would monopolize his mom’s minivan speakers on long hockey trips, leading the would-be guitarist to pour over records by Garth Brooks, John Michael Montgomery, and Brooks & Dunn. “I grew up in a really little town, it was all country and rural roads — I had a lot of that growing up,” he explained. “Country has definitely always been a part of my life.”
Kadooh released his first single, “24 Reasons”, the culmination of what lead him to head out to the west coast 16-years ago. “I moved out to Vancouver to be this person . . . it’s a bit of a change but it’s going to be great,” he said. “I’m so excited about it, and nervous at the same time, which I think is a good thing.” The project was brought together with the help of producer Jeff Johnson and reflects Kadooh’s new sound — one that has found influence in not only his everyday life, but an engrained love of music as a whole.
Another guiding force came in the form of award-winning musician and songwriter Chad Kroeger, who Kadooh said provided not only inspiration, but co-produced two tracks from his EP, as well. “Chad has always been a big influence . . . kind of the big brother I never had,” he explained. “He really bit me with the bug of playing live and his drive to be in music really helped push me in that direction.”
