With the release of his debut solo album These Things Are Being Gathered for the Fire later in the year, Kile is prepared to greet both new and long-standing fans with his richest work yet.
Evoking the sweeping romanticism of The Cure and early U2, the incandescent musical sophistication of Elliot Smith, and the lyrical sensitivity of a young Nick Cave or Conor Oberst, Kile’s compositions entrance and intrigue, bringing the listener back for listen after listen.
Classically trained on piano and voice, self-taught on guitar and bass, Kile performs most of the instruments on his recordings. These Things Are Being Gathered for the Fire is slated for release in Fall of 2020, to be preceded by a run of singles.
