Kyle Reid's upcoming EP Don't Be Afraid continues to garner attention from the press. NewsOK is debuting one of the tunes off the record, "Manic Expression" on their website. The record is a collection of instrumental tunes performed on Kyle's signature three-string, cigar box guitar.
Kyle Reid debuts his latest EP, Don't Be Afraid with an upcoming show at the Paramount Theater. The EP is all instrumental material, performed on his ubiquitous 3-string cigar box guitar. You'll be able to purchase his record at his website in addition to the vinyl edition of his debut release with the Low Swinging Chariots right here on FP.com.
Oklahoma's newest culture website, the Oxford Karma, interviews Kyle Reid about the music of Tom Waits to promote Friday's benefit for Norman's Food and Shelter. It's a great interview to promote a great show for a great cause.
The album’s title, spoken by Reid, are the first sounds on the record, cautioning band and audience alike that the show is about to begin -- setting time into motion and then “Shot of Whiskey” is underway. The band comes storming from behind with the incessant thump of the big bass drum, brushes on the snare, trumpet and trombone evoking a time when horns reigned supreme and then, they drop away, leaving guitarists Reid and John Calvin Abney to toss a little harmonized spice into the air before the whole thing lurches back into the unstoppable groove.
