Kurt Samuel Vile (born January 3rd, 1980) is an American musician from Lansdowne, Pennsylvania, best known for his solo records. He often performs and records with his band, The Violators.

Vile began writing and recording music in his teens, dreaming of emulating heroes like Smog and Pavement and signing to his favourite label, Drag City. His aspirations, though, were at odds with the professional life that he led through his late teens and early twenties, when he led what he’s described as a ‘depressing’ blue-collar life working jobs that included driving a forklift truck. It wasn’t until 2005, when he returned to Philadelphia after a while living in Boston, that he made his start in the music business by forming The War on Drugs with his friend, Adam Granduciel. He continued to work on his own material, too, and a solo album, ‘Constant Hitmaker’, was released in the same year as The War on Drugs’ debut, ‘Wagonwheel Blues’.

From there on in, Vile’s status as a band member or a solo artist became increasingly more muddied; it was his career as the latter that seemed to really take off, meaning that Granduciel toured with him in his backing band The Violators in support of 2009’s ‘Childish Prodigy’. Since then, Vile has split from The War on Drugs, who would go on to huge success with 2014’s ‘Lost in the Dream’, and focused on more solo records that have seen him master his own brand of woozy, freewheeling and often psychedelic rock; ‘Smoke Ring for My Halo’ met with rapturous acclaim in 2011, and its follow-up, 2013’s ‘Wakin on a Pretty Daze’, troubled the right end of many a publication’s end of year best-of list.
