ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
If you dig into the recesses of your memory, and recall the millions of little things that inexplicably wiped away your tear-stained cheeks as a child, that's what listening to Kyler is like. Hearing her sing is like a warm hug, a brightly colored band-aid on a skinned knee, a lollipop and a sticker after a visit to the doctor, a handful of dandelions in an old jelly jar. However, there is nothing childish about her approach to music. Her songs mostly deal with matters of life and love: the euphoric ups and devastating downs of relationships, battling the stresses of everyday life, the struggles of letting go and moving on. Very simply put, she makes the best of a bad situation by transforming even the darkest emotions into dazzling works of beauty and perfection.

From the minute she picks up her acoustic guitar and the first notes escape her lips, the audience is drawn in and captivated by her warmth and charm. Kyler's acoustic feel evokes the spirit of singer-songwriter predecessors like Joni Mitchell and Sarah McLachlan, but her unique sound forges its own path. She melds together elements of folk, rock, and pop, creating seamless pieces that are mellow and introspective, but with enough edge to grab and take hold of your attention. Her voice envelops you like a favorite sweater on a winter day, and her songs are individual perfect little rooms you want nothing more than to hide away in. Her lyrics are always poignant and honest, revealing the inner truths of human emotion. The combination of all these things hits the heart in such a way that all of that baggage you've been carrying melts away, and you're left with nothing but feelings of peace and contentment.

what the press has to say about kyler...
- "that voice...breathless and fragile at times and then catches you off guard and pins you to the wall" Jennifer Layton, Indie-Music.com
- "Kyler has guts. She's a special artist who can open her soul up to her listeners and take real risks." Peter Valle, Northeast Performer

- "You can see the potential for many missteps in such an ode, but England pulls it off beautifully. I dare you not to be moved when she sings "like a diamond in the sky." Rick Cornell, The Music Monitor

A Beautiful Voice, and a Fantastic Album!
I bought this album a couple of months ago. Now at first I thought it was good, but I didn't listen to it that many times. However, it now draws me back again and again - and it's easily my favourite album I've bought this year. Kyler is a real talent - I wish her all the best, and I'll certainly be buying more of her music in future!

I'm definitely a fan
This CD is so awesome! I've had it in my CD player since I bought it 2 weeks ago. The songs are so beautiful, and Kyler's voice is amazing. My favorite track is "The One," which is a wonderfully sad love song.
If you are a Sarah McLachlan, Sheryl Crow, or a pre-pop Jewel fan, you should buy this CD. You won't be disappointed.

Kyler is an amazing performer
Kyler is as yet mostly undiscovered, as alluded to in her "Radioactive" track. This amazes me almost as much as Kyler's voice, especially now that this CD has been released. Her lyrics are so real and raw, and her delivery is top notch. If you don't own this CD, do yourself a favor and buy it NOW! This one is truly her best yet.

An enchanting and rare find
I find some of the best things in my life are those that somehow found me. I have no clear recollection of how I managed to stumble on to Kyler's website and her "pop-up" radio which plays "A Flower Grows In Stone" in its entirety, but I feel fortunate to have experienced her music. I cannot say enough good things about this CD, her vocals and her poignant writing. She is incredibly gifted, sensitive, soulful, and she generously allows us to share her heartaches and her successes through the appropriately named "A Flower Grows In Stone".

Fresh, fun and very moving
If you're still making up your mind, just listen to Higher Ground or Distraction. I'll bet you'll end up loving Kyler. Her lyrics, music and feel are right on. There's not a so-so track in the bunch. Well done!
