Kit Walters is an American recording artist, songwriter, and producer. At the age of 18, already the dynamic front man for the progressive metal band Scapegoat, he began producing and recording fellow label mates with Tragic Hero Records. With an instinct for memorable hooks, Kit has created numerous fan favorites and bestsellers with artists such as Alesana, A Skylit Drive, and letlive. He’s worked as a writer, producer and composer on projects for World Wrestling Entertainment, West One’s Noise Refinery, Megatrax, and was the featured vocalist for Konami's cross-platform video game Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance.

Kit pulls his writing inspiration from everything he can, stating, “It's really about the song itself for me. I don't like putting myself in a box creatively or stylistically. The music that comes to me reflects where I'm resonating at that point in time, but at the drop of a hat can easily go in another direction all together.”

Now a seasoned producer, writer, and performer, he is pushing the boundaries with his new project, aptly dubbed KIT. Bringing an explosive energy to the stage in an unconventional, unforgettable blend of rock-inspired electronic pop, Kit Walters called upon the musical expertise of Lisa Hickox (bass/vocals), Spencer Bensch (guitar), Sammy Clark (drums), Ro Young (keys/vocals), and Yuiko Kamakari (Strings), to round out his eclectic sound. KIT released a debut 6-song EP, ‘Through The Fire’, on September 9, 2014 and has had the privilege of sharing the stage with artists such as One Republic, Cobra Starship, Flo Rida, Capital Cities, Kat Graham, Bret Michaels and many more.

With dedication and a fierce passion, KIT has begun to make his mark on the future of pop music. Bringing timeless songs that connect with others on a deep and intimate level, he’ll be releasing his dark and dirty new single, “No Mercy,” in early 2015 and is planning for a sophomore EP in the coming months.
