Kings Kaleidoscope Biography


King’s Kaleidoscope is an indie rock worship band from Mars Hill Church Ballard. Led by Deacon Chad Gardner, the band is made up of about a dozen musicians, including a string trio, a horns section, two drum kits—and definitely a cymbal or two.

Kings Kaleidoscope is a band from Seattle, WA. They currently consist of Chad Gardner, Zawadi Morrow, Zack Walkingstick, Blake Strickland, Daniel Steele, John Platter, and Jared Buck. Former members include Ryan Ponten, James Kim, Julianne Smith, Nadia Essenpreis, Andrew Nyte, and Lindsay Gardner, some of whom continue to appear on Kings Kaleidoscope releases and perform with the band on occasion.

Chad is the only full-time member of the band, handling the vast majority of the songwriting and production, and his wife Alex is the official band manager. The other members contribute instrumentation, background vocals, and occasionally songwriting. Most of them travel with Chad on tour, and they all have jobs outside of what they do for the band.

Musically, the band’s style has been known for its creative blend of rock, pop, EDM, and hip hop, while the majority of their lyrical content is very personal, emotional, and faith-based.
