Welcome to the second edition of SXSW Halfway House Sessions which we shot down in Austin during the SXSW Music Festival. These stripped down one off sessions were crudely shot in a small room inside a downtown Austin apartment with one microphone.
A self-described ‘old soul’, Tyler Lyle’s lyrics carry the weight and understanding that go far beyond his twenty-seven+ years. A transplant from Atlanta, GA to Santa Monica, CA Tyler Lyle has self-released several independent projects in the last few years including his latest EP Expatriates:
This small collection of songs was written by the caprice of some of the strange passengers in my head. I can’t point to which one wrote what, because as soon as I realize that I’m being led down a strange road, he vanishes before I’ve reach the end of it. I look around, astonished that the page is full of a stranger’s handwriting and claim it as my own. The theme is alienation/isolation – the november of the soul that begins to suspect that, damn it, this might just be it, and it’s not going well.
We can’t recommend this EP enough. Especially for your dark passenger.
Tyler is hitting the road for few dates. If you’re lucky enough to live in one of these towns – go say hi:
May 19 – Nashville
May 29 – San Francisco
May 30 – Davis CA
June 8 – Los Angeles
June 14 – New York
June 15 – Boston
Halfway House has been a long time fan of Ben Kyle ever since he captured our ears attention with Romantica – thus we welcomed the opportunity to host a living room show with the Belfast/Minneapolis native. While he was present we thought we’d convince him to record a Halfway House Session with us. Thankfully – he played along and was kind enough to oblige. The results were what you’d expect from a talent such as Ben Kyle and @ the very least allows the viewer to catch a glimpse of the awesome that they missed that March evening @ the Stone House.
Ben Kyle’s self titled debut album is available here. We can’t recommend it(or his other albums) enough. Your ears will thank you.
Get to know Ben Kyle: Website. Facebook. Twitter.
Welcome to the first of a handful of Halfway House Sessions we shot down in Austin during the SXSW Music Festival. These stripped down one off sessions were shot crudely in a small room in a downtown Austin apartment with one microphone.
Joshua James latest album From The Top Of Willamette Mountain landed on our radar shortly before our March adventure. We’ve been obsessed ever since. There are very few artists that write as honestly and earnestly than Joshua. We recommend grabbing the headphones for the opening track ‘Mystic’. Whoa.
Imagine our excitement @ the arrival of his new Beware! EP(released May 7th) which are an additional four tracks taken from the Willamette sessions recorded with producer Richard Swift(a respectable artist in his own right).
Chain of Lakes and The Wallace Collective will be releasing their respective albums on May 4th as part of a joint album release show @ Founders Brewing Company. Strawberry Heritage will be starting the evening off.
Both bands are offering up the first single from their albums via BandCamp.
Please join us as we celebrate the release of our friends albums!!!
