KP Records are proud to present the latest edition to the roster.
Give a warm welcome to one of the finest young MC’s coming up through the Canberra ranks.

The first of the next generation of KP artist.
Young, hungry and ready to build on the foundation we have laid down since January 2007.

Check back tomorrow for the first official KP Records KAWPicturless release – The track and music video “Never Gonna Stop”
Produced by our own Lesley Luna.

In the meantime here is a bit of an answer to the question – Who is KAWPicturless?????

Who is KAW Pictureless?

Now barely 18, mic in hand, KAW began life as an “any man” with an average run of the mill childhood and dreams of perhaps one day becoming a professional athlete or singer.

With adolescence came the more adult temptations in life and KAW gravitated toward weed after discovering it at age 13.
He would go on to use the drug as an escape and self prescribed medication for various underlying mental health issues.

It was these lifestyle choices and forks in the road that shaped his teen years.
KAW dropped out of school in year 9, things at home fell apart and before long he was living in a refuge.
By the time he celebrated his 18th birthday he was calling his best mates shed home. (Shouts from KAW too Jacob Clyde for the support)

Yes the journey of the past five years has been a hard road for KAW but not every step he’s taken has been so hard.

At age 14, a year after he discovered weed he discovered Hip Hop and those around him discovered just how easily the written and freestyle rhymes came to the kid.

By the age of 16 his mates were urging KAW to take his rhymes seriously and HE DID.
What he lacked in resources he made up for with hunger and drive relentlessly honing his craft writing and freestyling tracks right out of the shed.

Broke and without access to studio gear KAW turned to his iphone and the popular website soundcloud to share his voice but after 8 or 9 songs and a few hundred plays he realised that building a career in music would take something more than just sheer will.
With that he took a shot in the dark and contacted Big Dave founder of a label he’d heard much about – KP Records.
With the message he attached a 2 minute video he recorded spitting bars live right there over a beat.

Some things are meant to be and it just so happened that the guys at KP had been closely watching the Canberra scene, looking for their next signing.
Several names kept popping up but one that they were yet to hear was KAW Pictureless.

That was until they received a little video message through Facebook and weeks later KAW was in the studio and on location recording his first official KP track and music video “Never Gonna Stop This”.

From his garage in Canberra to the studio and to the stage KAW Pictureless is the first of the new generation of KP artists.
A young hungry breed ready to build on the legacy laid down since 2007.

So the question now is not Who is KAW Pictureless but what is he going to do now he’s found a home with KP?

In the near future expect free downloads, music videos, live sets and interstate battles.
In the long term expect a mixtape, albums and the rise of a kid that has decided its music or nothing.
