‘Too Shabby’: It’s Rozwell Kid’s latest album; they’ll make a stop at Launchpad

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. — Jordan Hudkins had a chance to sleep comfortably during Rozwell Kid’s recent show in Tampa, Fla. And it due was in part to Sean Hallock’s aunt and uncle hosting the band.

“Those days are too few,” he says with a laugh during a recent interview while driving to Miami. “We’re enjoying this current tour and having fun letting people see our live show.”

Rozwell Kid is a fairly new band that started in 2011. Despite being a young band, it has already released three albums and three EPs. Hudkins says the band is working on new music, which should be released next fall.

“We had a little time off and I was fleshing out some of the songs,” he says. “It’s starting to come together and we’re excited about what’s going to come from it.”

Its latest album is “Too Shabby” and it was engineered by Justin Francis at Ronnie’s Place in Nashville, Tenn., in early 2014.

Hudkins says by the time its 10 songs were done, it was obvious that the band had grown a lot from its previous releases.

“I think all four of us have grown together nicely as a band,” he says “We know where each other is going.”

Hudkins and Adam Meisterhans met at a camp in high school and then formed a band while in college. They met Hallock, who is from Pennsylvania, and the trio began playing basement shows and rec center shows. Soon the trio met up with Devin Donnelly, who had moved from Atlanta to West Virginia.

“I saw Devin at a show and didn’t know who he was,” he says. “It was at that moment I knew I wanted him in the band.”
