Kyle Craft's debut record sounds like an old classic

Louisiana-bred singer-songwriter Kyle Craft performs three songs from his striking new album, Dolls of Highland.

He hails from Louisiana but hangs his hat in Portland.
He's a storyteller like Bob Dylan but with a voice like early David Bowie.
He's just released his debut record, but it sounds like an old classic.

His name is Kyle Craft, and today he swings through studio q with his first album, Dolls of Highland. The American singer songwriter and his band perform three songs: Eye of a Hurricane, Pentecost, and Lady of the Arc.

Craft also sits down with guest host Jelena Adzic to discuss the real stories behind the music, growing up on the banks of the Mississippi, and why he recorded most of his album in a friend's laundry room.
