“If you aren’t familiar with this Austin, Texan, now is a great time to meet Kyle.” – COUNTRY WEEKLY

 

Chart-topping country singer Kyle Park is set to release his fifth studio album, ‘The Blue Roof Sessions’ on October 23 via Thirty Tigers. Drawing from a dynamic mix of styles and influences (George Strait, Chris LeDoux, Clint Black, Johnny Cash, Merle Haggard), the invigorated Park has added a jolt of rock ‘n roll intensity to this LP. The result is a milestone in his catalog – guitar-heavy tracks with a tougher edge that display raw, heartfelt, mainstream country music.

‘The Blue Roof Sessions’ was self-produced and features twelve blistery, country rock songs about love, life and all things in between.  For this aptly titled album, Park decided to take an organic approach and opted to not record the basic tracks in a traditional studio. Instead, Park and his studio band hunkered down in a (blue-roofed) house along the shores of Lake Travis (outside of Austin, TX). “Recording in the house, the idea was to go for an open feeling, something really big, with the drums very prevalent in the mix,” he explains. “It wasn’t about making a rockin’ album as much as making an album where the music comes first.”

There’s a swaggering Stones quality to “What Goes Around Comes Around” while thundering drums kick off “Drive You,” a desperate elegy to love lost. Meanwhile,  “I See Red” is power balladry at its finest. The power riffs, searing guitar and vocal breaks of “One of These Days” sprinkle dashes of Led Zeppelin, Jonathan Tyler and the Northern Lights and Audioslave to this Southern country/rock stew. Rounding out the album is a stellar cover of Billy Squier’s 1984 smash, “Rock Me Tonite.”

In the end, Park insists, “I think my voice makes ‘The Blue Roof Sessions’ country. No one can say it’s not me. But I’m changing too. The way I felt about music 10 years ago is not the way I feel now. I would have never put these songs on my first record. It would have been way too much of a risk. Now I’m more comfortable with who I am as a musician and as a fan of music. It would be easy for me to keep making the same record over and over and just have fiddle and steel — a good, clean, nice traditional record. I’m not looking for shock factor, but I am looking to stand out amongst the crowd as far as pushing boundaries.”

Park is already garnering early praise for his first single “What Goes Around Comes Around.” Its music video recently premiered on CMT and Taste of Country, and was just added to rotation on GAC and ZUUS.

New Kyle Park Single – “Long Distance Relationship”
E card

Taste of Country Exclusively Premieres New Kyle Park Video
Screen Shot 2014-04-01 at 10.13.55 AM

April 1 / Nashville, TN – Taste of Country has exclusively premiered country music favorite, Kyle Park’s new video for “Long Distance Relationship,” off his current studio album, Beggin’ For More. Filmed outside Austin, Texas, and directed by PAUL DE LA CERDA, “Long Distance Relationship” is the fourth single off the album, which was produced by Kyle himself. Click here to check out the video.

Beggin’ For More is the country singer/songwriter’s fourth album in a self-made career in which Park served as both the artist and the record label. He earned his first No. 1 single in the middle of recording the album, when “The Night Is Young” topped the Texas radio charts, and he naturally heard fans begging for more music.

The new album also finds him covering more creative turf. Beggin’ displays an expansive lyrical bent, ranging from the muscular foundation on “True Love,” which is part danceable soul music, to the introspective spirituality of “You Make Me Believe.” Stylistically, Beggin’ contains more traditional country than he’s inserted on an album before, but it also shows him pushing the envelope on several tracks. You can listen to the full album here: https://soundcloud.com/kylepark/sets/beggin-for-more/s-p4HXY

Roughstock.com says, “There’s a sweetness to Kyle Park’s voice that helps lend an air of authenticity while clearly being a unique vocal instrument. There’s not really anyone who sounds like Kyle Park on the radio and it’s a sound that’s allowed him to grow into his artistry as a singer.”

Through word of mouth built on solid touring, Park has expanded his audience from Texas into the surrounding states and the Midwest. He’s frequently shared stages with the likes of Gary Allan, Jack Ingram and the Eli Young Band. For more info and regular tour updates visit www.kylepark.com.

Nashville, TN (July 22, 2013) – Breakout country artist Kyle Park honors his greatest musical influence, George Strait, with the release of his brand new single “Fit For The King” to the Texas Music Chart and Texas Regional Radio Report today, 7/22. Solely written and produced by Kyle, the clever tribute weaves lyrics from 31 George Strait songs into a story about heartbreak. Directed by Paul De La Cerda, the “Fit For The King” music video features unique footage of George Strait in concert and memorabilia combined with Kyle’s exhilarating live show.

Watch the “Fit For The King” video now at:

“Writing this song was more about putting everything together, kind of like a puzzle,” shares Kyle Park. “I had a lot of George Strait CD’s and tapes at the time, (and I still do). I laid them all out across the floor and started with the song ‘Go On,’ placing the right titles in the right place. The song basically rolled out from there!”

“Fit For The King” is the follow up to his back-to-back, #1 smashes “True Love” and “The Night Is Young.” Featured on his current album BEGGIN’ FOR MORE, the song is already garnering buzz amongst radio.

“Kyle’s tribute to George Strait is something that I feel is needed in country music today … For Kyle to remind us just how great George was, is, and always will be was very comforting to me as a fan of Kyle and of course George,” – Adam Drake, KORA/College Station, TX

“’Fit For the King’ is a musical puzzle that instantly draws you in … all the pieces fit together, you know all the songs, and in the end you say WOW that was awesome! Kyle Park is at the top of his game!” – Austin Daniels, KFTX-FM/Corpus Christi, TX

The Austin native first hit the music scene in 2005 with the album BIG TIME followed by 2008’s ANYWHERE IN TEXAS. In 2010, he released two EPs. His breakthrough 2011 release, MAKE ME OR BREAK ME, delivered the hit title track, which earned Kyle a #3 spot on the Texas Music Chart and stayed in the Top 10 for over six weeks. Kyle has quickly become known for his top-notch, energizing live shows and growing loyal fan base, securing his name an honored spot on the back wall at Billy Bob’s Texas, right alongside Pat Green, Blake Shelton, Alabama, Brad Paisley and Tim McGraw.
