Live Wire Volume 2: The Official Bootlegs / The Green Room Sessions

by Kyler England

“Kyler England writes and sings of live wires and brushfires - things that are fast to ignite and faster still to burn out. Rife with complex melodies and emotional honesty, her songs crackle to life with her sultry, magnetic delivery.” -Asheville Citizen

“Kyler England writes and sings of live wires and brushfires - things that are fast to ignite and faster still to burn out. Rife with complex melodies and emotional honesty, her songs crackle to life with her sultry, magnetic delivery.” -Asheville Citizen Times

"Compassionate and introspective songs, all performed with confidence and intimacy."
-Performing Songwriter Magazine

Listening to any Kyler England song, it's easy to believe you're hearing a classic in the making: gorgeous, organic pop music that speaks to your heart like a close friend. Her soulful voice draws you in with its fragile strength, then leaves you breathless when it soars to brilliant heights. She sings like you'd always wished you could, with all the raw honesty of your most painful moments and all the beauty of your fiercest hopes. There is something universal going on here, something magical. Comparisons to Sarah McLachlan and Patty Griffin are mere approximations; Kyler has a style and charisma all her own.

But it's not only her voice. There's a good reason why Kyler England has won numerous songwriting awards, and garnered such acclaim for her recent album "A Flower Grows In Stone," including Best Alternative Rock Album of 2004 in the Indie Acoustic Project Awards. With a natural instinct for melody and lyrics, honed during a stint at the renowned Berklee School of Music, she crafts songs that are not only addictively catchy but full of depth. The simplicity of her words, which matches her crystal-clear, elegant sound, nonetheless conveys a deep well of emotion and wisdom--for even in her darkest material, there is always the glimmer of optimism.

Kyler's strengths are front and center on her new EP "The Green Room Sessions", masterfully produced by longtime collaborator Richard Oliver Furch. In "No More Sad Songs," she muses "Why is it always me/seeing question marks in places/where the answers used to be," before making a plaintive but reaffirming statement:

No more sad songs tonight
Come on, love, bring me back to life
Make it all stand still, stand still
No more sad songs tonight

The vibrant, driving first track "What You're Looking For" shines the spotlight on her powerful vocals, starting low and sultry in the verses, then building towards the final climax where she cries: "Do you even know what you're looking for? Do you even know?" It's hard not to get shivers--and then let the question haunt you.

The heartbreaking "Lay It On Me", and "If You Want Me To," which perfectly captures the delicious agony of unrequited love, are no less masterful works of songwriting. Every moment on this EP would be as equally at home on the radio as in someone's collection of lifelong favorites.

Kyler England is poised for a breakthrough, and is looking for the right label to take things to the next level. With Los Angeles as a home base, she's touring extensively across the US, playing more than a hundred shows each year from 2003-2006, and has shared the stage with Sting, Melissa Etheridge, Gavin DeGraw and Annie Lennox among many others. Those in the know in the independent music world are well acquainted with Kyler's tremendous talent, and know it's only a matter of time before she bursts onto the mainstream scene.

A green room may be where performers wait to go on, but with "The Green Room Sessions," the time has come for Kyler to take center stage.
