The songs from Kyle Donovan's upcoming album have won the young songwriter critical acclaim at five major contests, showcases, and folk festivals across the nation. The storytelling troubadour has been crafting vivid vignettes, capturing moments from everyday life to tell honest tales of love, loss, family, and the passage of time. His upcoming album, Then and Now, is slated for release in the summer of 2019.
He calls the countryside near Boulder, CO home, where he doubles as a musician and a sound engineer, hosting a monthly live-performance podcast featuring independent musicians called The Songwriter Hour. Kyle recently ran a successful Kickstarter campaign, where over two hundred friends and fans came together to support the release of the new album.

"With an absolutely astounding vocal range, Kyle Donovan sounds like the long-lost love child of Carly Simon and Art Garfunkel. The acoustic instrumentation that supports him is lovely, but over and over Donovan's voice is what draws all of the attention, and for great reason. It's beautiful."
