Members: The Kyd (aka) Casey Robbins
an original blend of rock n roll, pop, blues, and insanity.
At the bottom of a flight of stairs sits Casey Robbins (The Kyd) gently tapping his drumsticks against each other to music, audible only to him. He sits nestled in his drum set on a faded carpet no bigger than a large area rug. His backdrop is one where Dr. Pepper cans collect on the counters and a row of guitars display themselves as if being showcased behind a window. To the right of the Kyd, a mini-recording studio houses enough equipment to start an independent record label. Robbins can trace his musical beginnings in good ol' Oregon, back to his parents. Both played guitar. 1986 brought Robbins his first set of drums - a Mickey Mouse set. Robbins began recognizing beats with a little help from his friends, The Beach Boys, crackling on vinyl. Robbins worked his way through instruments and eventually started writing his own music. Through high school, Robbins formed several bands with friends, inventing group names such as "Spastic Disorder" and "Destitute." When these bands broke up a year after graduation, Robbins turned to producing by himself. In the past five years the Kyd has produced & arranged around forty-one albums and he's not stopping for anything. Long time friend Joel Magid says, "He couldn't' stop if he wanted to - he might as well try to raise the Titanic. The music keeps The Kyd sane and the fact that he can't stop producing it proves it." For The Kyd it all began with "an uncontrollable urge to make rhythms," and that's what it all comes back to. Visit his web site @ www.mrksorchestra.com
