Another week, another series of premieres here on VENTS. This time we are kicking it off with an unusual track by a Country Blues artist by the name of Kyle T. Hurley. His newest single “Shot!” dives into the odd waters of Smashing Pumpkins with Hurley’s voice reminiscent of Billy Coogan’s peculiar voice which blends with a somewhat simple though mighty catchy 90s Alternative driven track that gets under your skin and doesn’t let you go.
American country-blues artist Kyle T. Hurley has deep roots in the Los Angeles music club scene where he perfected a modern approach to the classic country blues style. His first album, recorded in the UK at famed Castlesound studios, where the Proclaimers, R.E.M. and Mark Knopfler recorded, consists of eight tracks of original material and two unique interpretations of classic country blues tunes. He has played in most major cities in the United States and Europe. Currently based in the UK, his style is a unique blend of old blues standards and new modern melodies of his own composition. His second and newest album- KTH II- was recorded in London and finished at Abbey Road Studios. It features Amy Winehouse guitarist Robin Banerjee. He is now based in London and gigging all over the UK and Europe. The album features nine original tracks and one unique interpretation of Pride and Joy.
Kyle also had the chance to sit with us and talk about the new track, album and more!
