L.A. via Florida singer/songwriter Kyle Dion takes us for a ride in his new EP, Painting Sounds. “The 21-year-old wunderkind isn’t one to follow trends,” Billboard said in their premiere of the release, which ranges from bright, rhythmic dance floor vibes to slinky late night R&B cuts, with jazz chords and hints of funk.
“I named it Painting Sounds because I wanted to play with this sound I had created for myself, I wanted to push the sound past its limits sonically and lyrically,” Kyle Dion explains. “I knew I wanted to do a project where every song would have a completely different vibe from the next while still keeping that undercurrent of my own style.”- Kyle Dion
