Kyle James Hauser
Cynics need not apply when considering Kyle James Hauser's debut solo album, Oh Oh. With its delicate Americana-style banjo picking and soulful, sentimental vocals, it's the ideal morning record, an unabashedly cheerful collection of expertly crafted songs. Collaborating with singer/cellist Ben Sollee, guitarist Grant Gordy (of the David Grisman quintet) and producer Jayme Stone, Hauser has delivered a memorable debut that will not soon be forgotten. From the clap-stomp of the title track to the bouncy strum of the Paper Bird-esque "Clockwork," Oh Oh is an energetic collection of happy jams and top-shelf bluegrass.
