    Thumbs up Kyle Wood (x-Crucial Smith newgrass) Goes Rock! for 2010!

    Kyle is out of Nashville TN and was formerly the mandolinist and lead singer/songwriter (along with Tim May) for the cutting-edge newgrass band Crucial Smith who, in their heyday in the 1990s, played Telluride, Winfield, the IBMA, etc.

    Kyle is getting back into the music scene with a solo cd and new sound in 2010. He is working on a logical extension of where he was with CS - his first flat out rock n' roll mandolin collection! Kyle's high, powerful vocals, stellar songwriting, and creative mandolin leads promise a great new mandolin-focused sound for the new decade.

    Kyle and I invite you to check out his brand new FB page at:

    You can sample his classic, newgrass sound with Crucial Smith at the link below:

    The awesome "Cry" is especially recommended.

    I love the original songs that Kyle (a Gibson man is writing and re-arranging to a rock format - including some Crucial Smith favorites! - for his 2010 rock n' roll solo album featuring the mandolin as a full-fledged lead rock instrument. Kyle's indie sound and high, powerful and emotive vocals are sure to appeal across many genres. I recommend Kyle's new music to fans of indie, alternative, classic rock, alt country, and progressive rock.

    Kyle Wood played mandolin and sang lead for years with Crucial Smith (Nashville). In their hayday in the 1990s and early 2000s, Crucial Smith played Telluride, Winfield, the IBMA, etc. Their two fine studio cd's -Crucial Smith (1997), and Morning Light (1999) - were produced by legendary guitarist/producer Pat Flynn (of New Grass Revival fame).

    The new album's format will be Americana/Indie rock and appeal to anyone who appreciates newgrass, alt country, indie, singer/songwriter, and classic rock music.

    With his powerful and emotive high lead vocals, superb harmony singing, high-energy mandolin work, and singer/songwriter sensibilities, look for Kyle's new mandolin collection later in 2010. It will feature his Crucial Smith bandmate, multi-instrumentalist Dave "Doc" Holladay, and exciting guest artists!

    One greatly anticipated highlight of the new cd will be the reworked "Cry", Kyle's signature song with Crucial Smith, as a dynamic Americana/country rock anthem!

    Update - June, 2010: Kyle's new album is almost completely written with most songs fully arranged and recorded. Four songs - including both "Cry" and a beautiful mandolin instrumental are ready for mastering.
