On the sleepy banks of Lake Superior, as north as one can travel in the state of Michigan, is the little city of Marquette. The small city boasts around 20,000 people and is known for its Great Lake beaches and pristine natural parks. Burgeoning musician, Kyle Barron, currently resides in this quaint part of the Midwest. He was drawn here from other southern port towns, finding comfort in hiding out in Marquette’s beaches and backwoods, culling inspiration from the serenity of his natural surroundings.
Barron’s rustic beard and husky build are apt for his locale. His woodsman charm is offset by a soft spoken singing voice. He is currently set to release his first full length album, “Saltless Ocean”, in the fall of 2015. The album was written, produced, performed, and recorded himself. This collection of songs promises to expand on Barron’s current songwriting sensibilities adding and fusing genres like folk and acoustic rock with adult contemporary sensibilities.
The current songs Barron has released all find him crooning over a gently played acoustic guitar. His song, “Drifter”, finds Barron alluding to his placid environment pondering his place in life. The track peaks with a plead to “find somebody, before you’re found alone”. The upcoming months hold a wealth of promise for Barron in the form of a new record in “Saltless Ocean” and the live shows that will follow. The strength Barron finds in the feeling of isolation that transfers so well to his songs will, in fact, be the catalyst for him putting himself in front of many. Come the end of summer 2015, Kyle Barron will be a hard man to find alone.
