That One Eyed Kid is the moniker of Josh Friedman, a Boston-based independent songwriter, performer, and producer. Building from a soulful vocal performance, bedroom-pop production, and delicate layers of acoustic and electronic instruments, T1EK's songs are about embracing our deepest insecurities and holding them up to the light.
T1EK’s single Rebandon (“A slick, haunting track that echoes within you long after you’ve stopped listening” - Sound of Boston) was mixed by Adam Korbesmeyer (Noah Cyrus, Aaron Taos), and mastered by Alex Psaroudakis (The Innov8tors, MOTi).
Embracing new heights of experimentation and emotion, Rebandon is the first of several new T1EK tracks to be released in 2019. The listener is taken on a journey of longing, betrayal, and acceptance. Enigmatic lyrics and sputtering sonic textures explore dichotomies of vulnerability & pride, mercy & cruelty, innocence and skepticism.
This is the first T1EK release since Crash and Burn EP in 2017. Inspired by artist producers (a la James Blake, Bon Iver) Josh spent the next two years producing singles and albums for other artists (Jenna Lotti, Anna Madsen, Kat Kennedy). He has also embarked on three tours, two of them in Europe. After helping other artists hone their sound and developing new material on the road Josh was ready to return to T1EK with a fresh perspective and a story to tell.
