Born and raised on the eastern coast of southern Florida, songwriter Kyle Breese has been writing music for as long as he can remember. Kyle began playing the drums at 8 years old and started his first band just two years after. Intent on playing his own original music, Kyle never joined a band, but always started them. He first found success with friends from high school in a pop-rock band called, Rumor Has It. The band was 1 of 5 bands chosen out of nearly 500 to play at the West Palm Beach date of the "Vans Warped Tour." Shortly after, the band disbanded to pursue other opportunities, and Kyle started the indie-rock band, American Photo Club. The band's first singe "Save Yourself" was debuted on Knoxville, TN's 90.3 The Rock. These days, Kyle has shifted his focus towards purely songwriting, instead of performing.
Kyle Breese grew up around the Space Program, and took a great liking to the orbiter "Columbia" at a young age. Having a close relative be a part of the NASA family, Kyle has had the opportunity to really get to know what NASA is all about. After witnessing many events at the Kennedy Space Center, including everything from launches to roll-outs and everything between, Kyle has gained a strong appreciation for all that NASA has done. His most recent song, "16 Minutes From Home," was written as a tribute to the crew that lost their lives aboard Columbia during mission STS-107. The song is meant to memorialize the heroes that gave their lives to further our mission here on Earth. Their accomplishments should never be forgotten and "16 Minutes From Home" does a great job making sure they never are.
The vocals on the track were performed by a fellow South Florida Musician, and close friend of Kyle's, Joey Beesley. Joey Beesley (born September 23, 1990) is an American Pop/ Blues-Rock/ Folk musician, singer songwriter, guitarist, performing, and recording artist. Born and raised in West Palm Beach, Florida, Joey began performing acoustically at the age of 18 packing local venues around his home town, working with charities, also appearing on internet radio shows with names like Mtv’s Cj Koegel and Micheala Paige from NBC's "The Voice". Joey has performed with names like upcoming artist’s Josh Hand, Griffin Anthony, and even performed internationally on board one of celebrity cruise lines newest luxury super ships. After his return to the U.S and a brief YouTube release of his song “Love Always”, Joey co-founded blues rock band “the Vultures” for which he became the lead singer, rhythm guitar player, and main songwriter. Since the bands dismemberment Joey has begun work on a greatly anticipated solo EP set for release this summer to mark his relocation to Nashville.
