Chris Kyle

Chris Kyle, who first came to us as part of Railbird - and more recently LIP TALK, has played with Sean Rowe, and many of the great Local 518s.  Plus, he's toured as part of The Duhks, and likely there is a lot more we are missing in our excitement to share his new single with you.  

"Falling in Circles" comes from a forthcoming record called "Air Jacket."  Chris, we cannot wait to hear more! And of course to play this on the radio! 

David Tyo "Oh, Life"
Artist

What happens when you challenge yourself to write a song on-demand and immediately record all of the parts, mix it and call it done in as little time possible?  "Oh, Life".  

Local 518 David Tyo explains how his original song "Oh, Life" was conceived, written, recorded, and mixed in three hours and two minutes.  No fancy studio trickery.  No looking back.  Nothing but forward momentum until something was created.
