Kyle Park’s New Project is Out Next Week
Leander, Texas native singer/songwriter Kyle Park is set to release his fifth studio album, ‘The Blue Roof Sessions’ on October 23 via Thirty Tigers. Park draws from a dynamic mix of styles and influences in the new LP including George Strait, Chris LeDoux, Clint Black, Johnny Cash, Merle Haggard, and he has added a jolt of rock ‘n roll intensity to this LP. The result is guitar-heavy tracks with a tougher edge that display raw, heartfelt, mainstream country music.
‘The Blue Roof Sessions’ is self-produced and features twelve songs about love, life and all things in between. In reference to the title of the album, Park decided to take an organic approach and opted to not record the basic tracks in a traditional studio. Instead, Kyle 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.”
