The Dawn Chorus / The Retrospective Soundtrack Players - Blogging all over the World

My name is Kyle. I am a happily failing indie/punk/folk/country/rock musician from Hampshire, UK. I have been singing and songwriting in The Dawn Chorus since 2005, and The Retrospective Soundtrack Players since 2010. I love these two bands like my brother/wife rolled into one. This blog details the shows I have played with both bands, in chronological order.

THE DAWN CHORUS – Town/City EP - Really fine, well crafted, very easy, inviting Americana that’ll put a home made bandage on your heart. Where are they from with their delightfully upbeat mellow American country twang? Hampshire, South Coast of little old England. Actually they do have an English heartbeat and a little bit of Bright Eyes meets The Kinks playing music with occasional trumpets and little details that could easily go by unnoticed feel. They claim to be not very fashionable of rock ‘n roll, could be they’re wrong there,sound very fashionable to me – fashionable or not they (or we) clearly couldn’t care less and what they very clearly are is very honest and very real and heartfelt. The problem with most English bands that come our way is that they almost always sound like they’re compromising and following the latest fashion or that new band they heard on the radio the other day – that kind of thinking has clearly never ever entered the brilliant uplifting mellow country rock heads of The Dawn Chorus. A fine five piece from nowhere in particular, as honest and beautiful as the day is long. Breezy, English sweethearts of the rodeo, take everything they have, I think you might need it - there’s very little left in life that hasn’t been destroyed, this is the celebration my dear. Just very fine mellow English Americana and crafted honesty from nowhere in particular.
