Kyle James Smith

Kyle from Damage Pants, Esbat, and Mastertape has been playing some country and western music under his given name Kyle James Smith. No word yet on recordings but I would liken it to some reflective, earthy sounds of the likes of Townes Van Zandt, Jimmy Dale Gilmore, Willie Nelson's "Stardust" album, and a man-Nanci Griffith...

Over the coming weeks he is joining Portland ME's Wesley Hartley & The Traveling Trees on the road for their dates in Texas, and playing a few shows over SXSW.
