Live from Elephonic : Kyle Martin in Live Studio Performance


My long time friend Kyle Martin returned to Elephonic Recording Studios in Albuquerque in March, just nights before the COVID  pandemic hit town, to record three brand new songs from his solo acoustic album Circadian Rhythm. This was a stripped down performance of some songs that had come to Kyle in a dream. I was the only other person in the studio that night, running both the mix board and the camera, and it was one of those rare nights where everything happens in pretty much one take. It was a special evening. Here is the first release from that night, recorded in the live room at Elephonic Studios. Hope you enjoy!
