KIX FRONTMAN STEVE WHITEMAN RELEASES FIRST SOLO ALBUM “YOU’RE WELCOME” ON JULY 2, 2021 / KIX IS CURRENTLY ON THE ROAD THROUGHOUT THE COUNTRY AND HEADLINING M3 ROCK FESTIVAL JULY 2

For the first time in his 35+ year history of as the lead singer and front man of KIX, Steve Whiteman will release his first ever solo album, You’re Welcome, on July 2, 2021. The 12-song album was co-produced by Whiteman along with trusted collaborators Brad Divens, Jimmy Chalfant, and Bob Paré; it was recorded and mixed by Divens at Fixintogetmixin Studio. 


Though the recent pandemic essentially derailed the last year-plus of KIX’s touring plans, it gave Steve the chance to settle in at home for a critical period of time and vocal rest, the results of which he was able to channel directly into writing and recording You’re Welcome. 


If you feel like the album title sounds familiar, you’re right! Steve explains, “It comes from a bit I do during KIX shows where I ask our crowds for a response. I demand they reply, ‘You’re welcome’ every time I say, ‘Thank you!’” And if the cover art looks familiar — it depicts Steve’s signature at the top, and a large, self-drawn stick figure underneath it. “Yeah, that started when KIX’s first album came out and the label had us do all these local in-stores,” Steve recounts. “It was madness, because we would be sitting there for like two or three hours just signing albums. People were always saying things like, ‘Write something special to me’ or ‘do something special,’ and I just ran out of ideas. Finally, I just started doing this little stick man as a portrait — and it kinda stuck. When people ask for my autograph now, they want my stick man — and now everybody can get it on the cover of my album.”
