ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Kyle Swartzwelder has been a fixture on the Delaware folk-rock scene for five years. Like most of us, his taste for music came at an early age, listening to too much of The Beatles and Simon & Garfunkel and discovering a 1968 Ovation Balladeer in his father's closet. He got his start backing up friends on guitar and after being encouraged to take center stage to claim some of the spotlight for himself, he soon found his voice as a performer. Any initial stage fright he felt quickly dissolved, as he's gone on to play over 150 live shows in numerous clubs, coffeehouses and open mics throughout the Delaware Valley.

2008 was clearly the busiest year of Kyle's short career. In addition to hosting a popular Thursday night open mic at Burlap & Bean in Newtown Square, PA, Kyle has just released his self-titled debut album. The record features eight songs; with Kyle being backed by some of the best players from the Philadelphia area. As a reward for his hard musical work, Kyle was named the Best Male Solo Artist of 2008 by 93.7 WSTW. In addition to that award, Kyle’s new record was nominated as the year’s best album. Prior to 2008, Kyle was nominated two years running as best male songwriter in Delaware by both 93.7 WSTW and Out-and-About.

Recommend if you like - Ryan Adams, Iron and Wine, Pete Yorn, Josh Ritter, Lyle Lovett, early Jackson Browne, early Neil Young.

What they're saying about the record:

"...its perfect..its beautiful and rich and full of heartfelt tales ~ if you like music that comes from deep within a man's soul..that place so few ever have access to..pick up a copy of this self titled Full length album."
--Tara Endicott - Cultural Arts Director - Burlap and Bean - Newtown Square, PA

"I listen to cds from artist all the time for my venue and at times it can become a strain. Every so often I'll here one that makes the search for talent a pleasure. This self titled cd kyle Swartzwelder is a polished gem of music, lyrics and vocals. When I listen to his material I know I'm listening to a headliner."
--Lee Zagorski - Owner - The Flash - Kennett Square, PA

"The self-titled CD by Kyle Swartzwelder provides an immensely enjoyable listening journey. His expressive vocals complement his honest and contemplative lyrics perfectly.... It is a simply delightful CD with a timeless quality that I will turn to again and again."
--Mike Riddle - Director - Dim the Lights Coffee House - Aston, PA

Kyle is a marvelous story teller. His voice is strong and uplifting. His words are genuine. And the music that accompanies each song supports the emotion behind the words. It is a CD that I can listen to time and time again. I only wish there were more songs on the CD to enjoy!

Music that matters
Kyles album is a gift for the soul. Kyle has the ability to stop you in your tracks and listen. His voice is comforting, his writing is intelligent, and his music is beautifully arranged. This album is a gem. When you get rapped up in the hustle and bustle of your day, you can count on Kyle to welcome you into his world, sit you down, and make you feel at ease. Everyone should own this album. However many musicians exist, Kyle stands out. He's honest and true.

I hear he has another one in the works, too.
Kyle gets better and better all the time. He's really developed as a songwriter.

AMAZING
I have been following Kyle's career since he first started getting on stage and it is just amazing to me how much he has grown. He puts so much of himself into each song and I can't help but be moved. The new CD is great and I can't stop listening to it. If you don't have the new CD go get it!

Old Soul, New Voice
The first time I heard Kyle Swartzwelder play a solo set with an acoustic guitar I knew he had something special - a new voice for an old soul. With his first full studio album, we hear Kyle's beautiful melodies elevated by an astounding arrangement of instrumental layering that brings his honest, lonesome sound to a new level. Its only a matter of time before you have to travel a lot further than to the local, intimate acoustic venues of Philadelphia to hear Kyle do his thing. For now, rest assured you can catch a performance almost any night of the week in Philly, and now you can even bring him right in your own living room, thanks to his lovely debut album.
