About

Band Bio:
Eccentric new band out of the Los Angeles California, Native Kinds brings a creative blend of Hip Hop and Rock. Blending thick guitars, bouncy drums, an overlay of Top 40's and today's Hip Hop style vocals, with Trap influenced breaks, they narrowed in on their unique sound. Formed in the spring of 2014, the band set out to record its first records in Los Angeles. With experience in today's pop culture and playing in bands over the years at their disposal, Native Kinds is ready to leave an imprint on today's music scene.

The Guys:
Josh Sweiven - Vocals - A 22 year old from Bloomington Minnesota. Originally started off playing the guitar, he developed a natural talent for singing. He was influenced at an early age by a more pop aesthetic such as Fall Out Boy.

Phillip Berg - Guitar/Backing Vocals - A 24 year old kid from St. Paul Minnesota. He started playing the guitar at the age of 12. He grew up listening to music his older brother would listen to, which helped shape and influence his music today.

Sam Bramble - Drums - A 22 year old born and raised in Minneapolis Minnesota. He was born with rhythm and a natural feel for the arts. Excelling in a performing arts school on drums, he built his skills to early pop punk bands such as Green Day.

Know What You Want To Know!

Josh Sweiven - I used to have a pet falcon named Caesar for a month, which I kept secret from my parents.

Phillip Berg - English is kind of my second language. I was born bilingual, (Russian/English) and working on a third language (Spanish).

Sam Bramble - Pickiest eater of all time, I separate my veggies and dressing (which I sip in between bites) from my salads as well as I only order chipotle burritos with rice and beans.
Native kinds - Lets put it this way, we can throw a party and love shenanigans. Sam was completely naked under his gown during his high school graduation ceremony so you can imagine the type of events we can throw together.
Native Kinds - Favorite things to do when we aren't writing music would be hitting the beach and exploring what is around us. We love getting outside, hiking, and spending time with those close to us. Also, outside of music we continue to pursue other arts. Sam loves to pursue photography along side music. Phillip loves learning how to design websites and photoshop logos. Josh loves to kick it and work on video editing. In the end we love trying to appreciate and remember the smaller things in life.
