From BEN KYLE
Minneapolis native BEN KYLE, better known before now as the songwriter / frontman for beloved alt-country act ROMANTICA, was born and bred in Belfast, Northern Ireland in the 1980's. Upon his family's emigration to the US in the mid 90's, he quickly embraced the musical roots of North America and his "Irish-Americana" brand of songwriting has been admired by artists and critics alike. RYAN ADAMS, ALEJANDRO ESCOVEDO, CARRIE RODRIGUEZ, and SARA WATKINS are just some of the great artists who have collaborated with Ben. PASTE Magazine named ROMANTICA'S sophomore Album, AMERICA, "One of the Best Albums of 2007" and the HUFFINGTON POST recently dubbed Kyle "A Sleeping Giant." His duets release with Austin, TX roots queen CARRIE RODRIGUEZ, was a huge hit with Americana Radio in 2011 and now this, his latest project, is a warm and tender, "ethereal and compelling," appropriately self-titled, solo debut. This vibey, hushed and soulful americana spills from the heart and will likely move yours..
