Kiefer is back with his second release of 2019, Superbloom, scheduled for September 20 release via Stones Throw

Kiefer considers Superbloom to form part of a cohesive whole with Bridges, which, released in April, saw him expand his musical palette beyond the piano, working with a number of analogue synths. 

On Superbloom, he takes that a step further, with songs that he describes as "brighter, more imaginative, and vibrant." He describes the EP as a "very active" work: "The first five tracks are invigorating, while the final two tracks act as a grand exhale following all that energy."

Kiefer, who studied jazz at UCLA under musician Kenny Burrell—the program counts Kamasi Washington among its alumni—is now a mentor to musicians at every stage in their careers. Since the release of his last full-length, Happysad, and Bridges, Kiefer has also produced three beats for Anderson .Paak's albums Ventura and Oxnard
