ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
What is truly unforgettable about singer-songwriter Kyler is her ability to peel back all the layers, holding nothing back.

Her voice holds you captivated while the raw honesty of her writing brings you to your knees.

In a bold voice Kyler reaches out to share her very personal journey through hope, loss and healing on her new EP produced by Richard Oliver Furch, HOW MANY ANGELS?

"With this EP I hope to forge a silver lining from a time when there really was none" says Kyler of the songs inspired by the experience of losing her mother to cancer.

"I have found great solace and healing in these songs and I feel that others who have had similar experiences can as well."

Half of the proceeds from the EP will benefit Triangle Hospice, the hospice organization in her hometown in North Carolina. Triangle Hospice will be working with Kyler to reach those who have also experienced the loss of a loved one.

HOW MANY ANGELS? takes the listener on a journey through emotions associated with loss with the intention of providing a release, "a watershed for all the times you've had to hold it together when all you wanted to do was fall apart." Kyler begins the journey with "If the World Would Just End" and the idea of wanting to freeze time before her worst fears can become a reality. In "Lump", Kyler compares the lump in her throat to the source of her family's pain, cancer, and faces the possibility of losing her mom. "I'm not ready to lose you/ seems like we've just begun/ i'd give anything just to see you well again." In the aftermath of her mom's death, she confronts God in the EP's most emotionally raw and angry track, "Why?": "why must we fade into the darkness from which we came/ why must we pay for our love with an emptiness in its place/ why did we fall from your state of grace?" "Save Me" is a glimpse of the tragedy through her father's eyes as he faces life alone. The EP closes with "These Four Walls," a simple and stunning ballad about the empty space that will always remain in her heart.

Kyler currently lives and performs in NYC in addition to touring the east coast. She has released two independent albums prior to the EP on her own label, Gypsy Rock Records, which have sold over 1500 copies. The more recent IF THE WORLD WOULD JUST END is receiving college airplay and tracks from both her albums have been featured on multiple daytime TV programs. Her song "These Four Walls" appeared on the compilation CAN YOU READ THIS BOSTON? which won a 2000 Boston Music Award and her song "Stronger" will be featured on a compilation of all female singer-songwriters called SHEKINAH to be distributed by Sony/Epic in the fall 2001. Kyler herself was nominated for a 2000 Boston Music Award, received an honorable mention in the 2000 John Lennon Songwriting Contest, and has opened for Liz Phair, Shannon Curfman and Mary Lou Lord.

HOW MANY ANGELS? was released in mid August 2001 with a series of release events also to benefit hospice. An east coast tour to support the EP will follow in October.

In the midst of truth...
This album has got to be one of the most beautiful pieces of work I have ever experienced. I say experienced because it has moved me to the point of sympathetic tears and anger. Kyler, poses questions to God that we all want answered, all the while letting the listener in on the vulnerability she had experienced before and after her mother's death.
Under the production of Richard Oliver Furch, this 6 song EP will always keep you on your toes with the wide array of instruments used to make each song more personal. The ear candy that is Kyler's voice, will surely become your favorite and have you feening for more.

BUY THIS CD IMMEDIATELY!

Healing Art
This album helped me put my hurt into words after losing my mother to cancer. Kyler sings about so many thoughts and feelings that I had. This is a great piece of art and just accomplishes so much! I had the chance to meet Kyler when she was promoting this album and tell her that this album was so helpful and appreciated. Seems like all of us that have lost our mother's to cancer belong to this unspoken tribe and this album could be our soundtrack.
