Kyle Hollingsworth Album: And Tour w/ Zach Gill


Kyle Hollingsworth
For more than a decade, as keyboardist for Colorado's beloved String Cheese Incident, Kyle Hollingsworth has consistently proven one of the most innovative and virtuosic musicians on the American jamband scene. Now, with the September 15 release of Then There's Now (SCI Fidelity Records), his first album since the band announced a hiatus in 2007, Hollingsworth extends his reach into areas that will both delight longtime admirers and lock in countless new ones. Emphasizing his considerable songwriting skills and incorporating a plethora of surprises, Then There's Now marks the true emergence of Kyle Hollingsworth as a solo artist.

Kyle Hollingsworth Band (featuring Dave Watts of The Motet - drums, Garrett Sayers of The Motet - bass, and Dan Schwindt - guitar) tours Midwest and West Coast states this fall in support of Hollingsworth's new album release. Brushfire Records recording artist Zach Gill (ALO, Jack Johnson) joins Hollingsworth for the October run of West Coast dates and Colorado's Euforquestra returns home to support the September's Midwest dates. A limited number SCI Fan Club tickets will be available through pre-sale at beginning Wednesday, July 29 at 10 a.m. PDT. General on sale begins Saturday, August 1 at 10 a.m. PDT at and at respective venues.

For Hollingsworth, who has recently been more prolific than ever before, the title of Then There's Now offers the first clue as to where he stands today. Then There's Now undeniably draws on Hollingsworth's past affiliation with "The Cheese," using his previous work as a jumping off point-yes, there are some intoxicating, if more concise, jams to be savored. But the album's "now" component-irresistible melodies, poignant lyrics and fine-tuned song construction, plus a willingness to infuse the tunes with elements of pop, jazz, electronica, hip-hop and more-transports Hollingsworth into musical realms he's never before explored at length.
