Kyle Donovan – Then and Now

kyle-donovan-album-review-marquee-magazine

Kyle Donovan is a rare and beautiful talent … with a voice that lifts, he sings notes that feel like fire flies on a moist summer evening alongside a deep and slow moving river … this isn’t mundane … it’s invigorating. Few voices are as pure and unwavering in tone and pitch, or as sweet and sensitive in emotion.

Kyle’s quietly expressive stories of life are reminiscent of the best storytellers … none less than Paul Simon, Kyle’s strongest and most obvious muse. “Then and Now” is a love album – the best kind; it’s inspirational. That the album is self produced, self recorded, self mixed and mastered is testament to Kyle’s unrelenting faith and courage in his immense talent. It simply sounds fabulous.

This is an album for the end of the night – at the quietest possible time of day, and mind and body. It ends with the sweetest lullaby, “No Matter the Distance,” a “honey dipped melody” to the love of his parents, knowing “we will always be here, in your heart.”

Kyle spent three years engineering what really is a masterpiece of a solo debut .. and a strong contender for ALBUM of the YEAR on the Colorado Playlist.
