Latch Key Kid is widely known for the song, "Good Times" from the hit 2009 DreamWorks Picture film featuring Paul Rudd and Jason Segal, "I Love You, Man" and the 2009 Warner Bros. movie, "The Invention of Lying". It was also played on many television shows including "The Hills", "Degrassi The Next Generation", "Ghost Whisperer", and played on many other television shows, and his music has been played in department stores, and national television commercials.
With such a long list of features in mainstream media world wide, Latch Key Kid is still very much an independent artist. "How could this be?" you might ask. Without a record label, it is nearly impossible to break from an indie artist to rockstar status, but with the help of his agent and PR company, Latch Key Kid is out there getting his music heard and is very successful at it.
After the much success surrounding the release of his song, "Good Times", Gavin Heaney plans to continue the momentum of his success with the 6th full length LP installment with the release of "Wide Open".
While you may expect more of an acoustic sound that mirrors his previous work, "Wide Open" delivers another side of Latch Key Kid especially with song like, "Walkabout" that brings a touch of the Outback in Australia. Other songs like "Destiny" and "Wide Open" take you on a mental journey to the sandy beaches of Hawaii and make you crave the summer weather.
