THE SWORD Guitarist Kyle Shutt Announces First-Ever Solo Album For Spring 2019
Kyle Shutt is sure as hell not taking a break now that The Sword is on hiatus. Shutt has already announced shows for his Pink Floyd doom cover band Doom Side Of The Moon, and he'e now announced another project he'll be undertaking – a solo career.
Shutt has officially announced he'll be releasing a solo album sometime in spring 2019 and is seeking $30,000 to do it. Shutt says he'll be playing all the instruments on the album and doing all the vocals and that the money will also go toward funding additional records.
"I love producing albums and rolling up my sleeves to tackle big challenges. While wondering what to do with a mountain of material not necessarily fit for any band that I am in, I heard a tiny, very loud voice telling me to make a solo album in that very sense, solo! I’ll be hitting those drums, slapping that bass, singing those lyrics, and absolutely shredding that guitar. If there’s something that makes a noise I like, I’m playing it. Now, while making albums is a load of fun, it’s also a load of work that, in 2018 doesn’t come cheap. That’s why I thought I’d ask you all be a part of the launching of this wacky solo career, which isn’t just stopping with this initial album. I’m starting with this record and will go wherever my inspiration takes me."
"It‘s not easy being an artist these days, and I truly couldn’t do this without your support. So if you have the faith in me to do my part in saving rock ’n’ roll, pick up a record and a shirt and LET’S DO THIS THING!
