Solitary Road

by Kyle Vincent

Half like Air Supply, half like Queen laying down enough vocals for a "You're My Best Friend" remake, half like a melodic George Harrison who finds himself released from the prison we call Beatles in this new century's recording technology.

Album Notes
"Solitary Road," is an album of simple melodies and beautiful arrangements... a bit reminiscent an era where some of the all-time great singer-songwriters ruled the airwaves, yet Vincent keeps them fresh with his own contemporary production and lyrical bent.

"Entertainment Today" calls it, "A collection of moving, introspective tunes that could melt even the iciest of hearts."

Vincent's musical roots are in the catchy, melodic tunes that were magic to the ears of the youngest child in a politically charged family in Berkeley, California. Vincent would often retreat to his room and dream of riding the radio waves himself someday. "While most kids were watching TV, I was playing Radio DJ, taping and engineering my own shows on an old reel-to-reel recorder I had found in the basement, and splicing them together with Scotch tape." An original snippet saved from those days eerily indicative of the boy's destiny - introduces the songs on "Solitary Road."

"I Should Understand" from the new album represents the songwriter's current state of unrest when "I don't recognize the world I used to know. It only lives inside those childhood days when we thought we'd play for good. I never understood how all the roads led here."

The acoustic guitar driven "Sierra," is Vincent's plea to promote peace and caring for our planet and was inspired by the work of John Denver and John Muir. "I always thought Denver had used his fame in an appropriate manner," Vincent said. "And John Muir was an amazing guy who saw all this coming 130 years ago. What I wouldn't give to have a think tank of Muir, Denver, and Thoreau making our environmental choices."

Another track, "If I Had Anything," written at Walden Pond in Concord, Massachusetts (in the company of a Great Blue Heron), is "the antithesis of 'Sierra,'" Vincent explains. "This one harkens to the day where we needn't worry about the heavy stuff, when love was as simple as a song."

Love is rarely simple though, and Vincent plays this out copiously on Solitary Road.

"Let Me Let Go," with its over-the-top piano production (Vincent calls it "Maniloaf"- part Manilow, part Meatloaf), speaks of the torment of being in love with the wrong person. He even called in famed Manilow producer, Ron Dante, to contribute backing vocals.

"Remember Me," the first single from the album, tenderly and honestly addresses the regrets and memories of a father-son relationship. "Bridge," with its musical nods to the band "America" deals with the realization that a love affair merely served as a conduit for another's personal growth.

Two other tunes, "Our Song" (a nod to Elton's "Your Song"), and the CD's closer, "I Sing For You," further express the lyricist's love of music and the life of the touring musician. Ten of the twelve original songs on the album (which also includes a noble cover of Carole King's "It's Too Late") were entirely written, produced and arranged by Vincent.

"'Solitary Road' really is the perfect title for this album," Vincent concludes. "It's about sometimes feeling as though you don't belong anywhere; a bit out of touch or out of synch, but finally being okay with that. Choosing to go at it on your own road no matter what anyone says, celebrating the journey and surviving. That not only explains my experiences in the record business, but in life."

Vincent's self-titled debut album hit the racks on Hollywood Records during an extensive tour that took the artist to over 100 radio stations and concerts across the country. The CD spawned a Billboard and R&R Top 20 Hit with its first single "Wake Me Up (When The World's Worth Waking Up For)." The song was the highest charting song for the label the year, eventually logging over 100,000 airplays. It was featured in the Garry Marshall-directed film "The Other Sister," and MTV's "Road Rules" and "Real World". Another track from the CD set the tone for a love scene on ABC's daytime drama "All My Children."

Songs from Vincent's catalog have aired on "Daria" and "Undressed" (MTV), "Ed" (NBC), and are licensed to Spelling Entertainment for future productions. The singer has even received a commendation from former president Bill Clinton and former senator Robert Dole for his charity work. Now a sought-after producer and writer, Vincent has recently signed two new artists to his label and has his first release by one of his artists due in stores in January, '05.

"Solitary Road" is what Vincent calls his 'transition' album. "Vincent has obviously lived and breathed every ounce of these songs," writes John Borack of Amplifier Magazine, who has followed Vincent's career since the early days. "I applaud Vincent's growth and maturity as an artist... I am blown away by 'Solitary Road."

Very moving the lyrics.
I have really enjoyed listening to Solitary Road...the music and lyrics really move me. I can't wait for Kyles next release!


Enjoy his other albums but this is my favorite...

Adam Book

Stunning CD filled with one great song after another!
This is one of those CDs where the songs resonate long after the CD has left the player. The lyrics are strong, the melodies infectious, the voice just amazing. It's been a long time since I've bought a CD where I can't wait to tell people about the artist but it happened with this one. A winning addition to anyone's CD collection.

Songs of beauty...
... that really touch the heart! I am glad to have come across these catchy tunes. You often get simple songs and unbelievably dumb/boring lyrics on the radio; Kyle's got sweet tunes and the lyrics really grab you. Go on, friend, dance again: in Germany, if I had my wish tonight!


Relax, your with a friend...
Kyle's style is notably smooth and visits that place that only true artists visit: The Heart. Thanks for a great album, Kyle.

Very Pleasant Surprise!
I bought 2 copies of the CD "Solitary Road" so that I could share it with a friend and am I glad I did! At first I wanted to just hear "Sierra" since I'm a HUGE John Denver fan and a member of Windstar, John's environmental organization, but after listening to the rest of the songs, I was so taken by surprise! Every song that Kyle Vincent sings is fantastic!! Thank you so much for caring and spreading peace and hope.

Music to calm one in a savage world!
Truly amazing! The music and lyrics may seem simple; but listen with your heart and not your ears and the real feelings and meanings come out without much fuss. Kyle has done well once again; and I can't wait for his next release. (Thank you Kyle for the Lodi benefit and ability to chat with you afterwards...)


Absolutely fantastic cd
The images created in my mind's eye as I listen to these lyrics are simply awesome. It speaks on so many levels the music, the arrangements, the lyrics, I could go on and on. A truly fantastic cd.

another fine piece of work
there's not one song I don't like on here. why can't all artists create discs like this?
