PRAISE FOR "THEN AND NOW"
From the moment Kyle Donovan sings the opening line off his new album 'One distant star on the interstate, guides me back home to you,' his high falsetto sets the stage of an immaculate folk record to come. His striking tenor sits front and center throughout Then and Now, supported by top-notch playing and solid songwriting.
Taking cues from master songwriters like Cat Stevens and Paul Simon, both vocally and lyrically, Donovan presents an album that examines the human experience through personal narratives of love and loss and the befuddling relativity of time. His voice, a clear, effortless tenor, celebrates and soothes as easily as it laments and unsettles.
... the former student of philosophy draws on his penchant for penning material with a compelling blend of mystery and commonality while simultaneously displaying impressive vocal and instrumental talent.
Kyle Donovan's new album is DEFINITELY one of the best of Colorado for 2019.
