NEW MUSIC: Kyle Davis - Not Broken
I was contacted directly by the representative of Kyle Davis, asking if I was interested in reviewing his latest music.
This came as a surprise, as it was on the back of my review of David Gray's latest album, of which I didn't give the most glowing review. However, Kyle's representative said they appreciated my tactful honesty!
I'm glad they got in touch because Kyle is an exciting artist indeed. He's well established but surprisingly, unsigned.
Listening to his new track 'Not Broken', you feel as if you are being wrapped up in a warm blanket, carried away by his soothing vocals. He sings about making mistakes, things might go wrong, but 'we're not broken.' It's heartfelt but also uplifting.
Living in Virginia, US, he has opened live on stage for everyone from Sheryl Crow, Dave Mathews and Bob Dylan to Hall and Oates.
If you've watched TV shows such as One Tree Hill, Joan of Arcadia or CSI, you will have heard his music without even realising it. He's also sung on a number of TV commercials.
After a ten-year hiatus, his single, 'Not Broken,' comes out on May 10, a prelude to his album, 'Make It Count.'
