Their debut self-titled album was released in 2009 to positive reviews and they went on their first national headline tour in 2010. Kid Sam were nominated for a J Award and the Australian Music Prize. Their final live performance was in August 2010 in Melbourne supporting Grizzly Bear and Here We Go Magic at the Palais Theatre in Melbourne. Both cousins moved on to other projects, with Kishore drumming for bands such as Seagull, Otouto and Where Were You At Lunch since then. Kieran Ryan spent 2011-12 recording a self-titled solo album, which was released in 2013. The duo played a one-off show at their record label's party in April 2015.In October 2022, the band posted to their long-dormant Facebook page about a "12 year reunion" show alongside Carla dal Forno at the Bridge Hotel in Castlemaine, with a promise of more to come if it "goes well".
