Brooklyn-native Kieran Meadows is not only a DJ and musician—he could easily be called a curator of vibes. With an open mind, a refined taste and a discerning ear, he has been described as:
"....a media and music maven. If God is in the details, Kieran is a priest of the church, perfecting sensorial experience like a zen master."
He has performed most notably for the likes of Drake, Rihanna, Katy Perry, Spike Lee, Vernon Reid, Savion Glover and for members of the New York Knicks. His sets focus on weaving together a story, maintaining a thread across songs and genres, and taking listeners on a sonic journey.
For more than 100 weeks running, he has operated an independent & mobile storefront radio studio broadcasting, hosting and DJ'ing a live, weekly music program The REFRESH in downtown New York City. The show/event has featured some of the best DJs in the city as well as international DJs from around the world in a raw, interactive and enjoyable setting. In the show's first 100 episodes, he challenged himself to—and then succeeded at—never repeating a song in a set, always trying to keep his mixes fresh, and played thousands of different songs, exposing listeners to an inspiring palette of sounds.
Known not only for his musical talents, but also for his professionalism and authenticity, he has DJ'd at venues around New York including The Blond at the 11 Howard Hotel, Soho House, The W Hotel, Louie & Chan, The VNYL, WeWork Soho, Better Days, The James Hotel, The McCarren Hotel, The Thompson Hotel, Kinfolk 90 and 94, C'mon Everybody, Friends and Lovers, Casablanca, The Late Late, the former Meridian 23 and Tiki Tabu Rooftop at Sixty LES Hotel, and at Miss Lily's Restaurant and Spur Tree Restaurant. He has also performed in Brazil, in southern Bahia, in São Paulo, and in Rio de Janeiro's Favela Vidigal and at La Paz Nightclub in that city's nightlife-centered Lapa neighborhood. His mixes have received support from The FADER, Okayplayer.com and Vashtie.com. To hear his mixes, see here.
He is also a journalist—writing, reporting, directing and producing for Forbes, Red Bull Music Academy, ABC News, LargeUp.com and Democracy Now. He is currently the Producer & Engineer, Forbes Podcasts as a member of Forbes' video team.
He is also very passionate about health, fitness and wellness for himself and the community at large. He was raised as a vegetarian by his forward-thinking and health-conscious parents and to this day he continues to love to cook up and share homemade plant-based and vegan meals.
