Introducing Kyle Cox, a singer songwriter who brings you back to the 30's and 40's with his retro jazzy ballads.
His supporting team of skilled musicians include Paul Defiglia on bass (The Avett Brothers, Langhorne Slim, Charles Bradley), Matthew Wright on keys (David Ramirez), and Robert Gay on trumpet (Natalie Prass, Jim Lauderdale). Drawing inspiration from artists like Billie Holiday, The Mills Brothers, The Ink Spots, & Frank Sinatra even, Kyle's melodies and overall vibe emit a nostalgic mood that sounds fun yet sophisticated.
His primary influence for his touching lyrics comes from John Prine. Check out his charming track that caught my attention below.
