Project News - Romantica's "America" Vinyl Release

Just began a new project with a local band called Romantica. We are releasing their acclaimed album "America" on vinyl. Ben Kyle, the lead singer and songwriter, is a transplant from Northern Ireland and is taking the world of Americana / Alt-Country in new directions:

"For anyone worrying that the Americana genre has become a repository of the bad irony of hipsters and has-been quacks, fear not: Romantica is here to save the day... Ben Kyle is the latest in a long line of European exports to reinvigorate a genre by reclaiming it as his own... With one foot still in his home country, and one taking a tentative step into the mess of promises and disappointments on the other side of the pond, Kyle and his bandmates dust off the brilliance at the heart of America.... Kyle—in songs and voice that sit comfortably between Jeff Tweedy and Ryan Adams—dwells comfortably in the long shadows cast by his forefathers while leaving his own undeniable stamp on the proceedings."
