Kyle Hollingsworth to Release New Album, Then There's Now

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 Sept. 15th 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.

kyleFor 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.

Look for Hollingsworth on tour this fall in support of Then There's Now.  Tour dates to be announced soon.

Porter Batiste Stoltz ft. Kyle Hollingsworth @ Boulder Theater

Known for creating some of the funkiest music on the scene, Porter Batiste Stoltz is comprised of three outstanding individual musicians who together always put the music – no, the groove – first.  George Porter Jr., Russell Batiste Jr., and Brian Stoltz are part of the rich history that is New Orleans' musical ancestry and this March, PBS will be bringing their NOLA funk show to Boulder Theater.  Master keys player Kyle Hollingsworth (The String Cheese Incident) will be joining PBS so the funk grows on.

Porter Batiste Stoltz are celebrating the success of their first-ever live release MOODOO, which hit streets in the fall of 2008.  Offbeat Magazine named MOODOO one of their Top 10 albums of 2008 and Creative Loafing calls the tunes "fresh and full of energy."  The album features special guest keyboardist Page McConnell (Phish) sitting in on select songs.  The recording offers highlights from an epic November 2, 2007 gig at Burlington, Vermont's Club Metronome, where McConnell joined PBS on stage for part of their performance. Documentation of the evening had been highly sought after by fan communities, yet there had been no known recordings of the show – until its release.
