UNCO[V]ERED feature, Byron Bay local Kyle Lionhart has released his debut album and is set to head on tour. He’s a busy guy!
On his debut album, Too Young, singer-songwriter Kyle Lionhart practices self-therapy, asking life’s big questions with stunning results. Written through a turbulent time when Lionhart grappling with his place in the universe & seeking answers: “What’s it all about? Why are we here? What are we doing it all for?” – Kyle did his searching through song and while he might not have all the answers just yet, the journey has resulted in a breathtaking, life-affirming debut album that hopes to help listeners as much as creating it has aided him.
Enlisting John Hume (Dean Lewis) and Lindsay Jackson to produce the album, the trio decamped to Jackson’s home basement studio in Nashville where they ate, slept and recorded side by side for six weeks as Too Young came to life. While the close quarters felt intense at times, it created a special bond between them.
The video for ‘Holding On’ came together after Kyle was shown a clip on YouTube made by a dance class in Japan, set to his song ‘Heart out First’. Both the sentiment and the incredible choreography led to Kyle connecting with the dancers online and discussing the possibility of a collaboration. Within a month, Kyle was filming in Japan – resulting in his most visually striking video to date.
