About SPEED OF LIFE
SPEED OF LIFE–out August 19 on SCI Fidelity Records–marks the third solo album from KYLE HOLLINGSWORTH, keyboardist of The String Cheese Incident. It was inspired by all facets of his life–from beer to babies to music to mayhem–and ranges stylistically from ‘60s funk to modern electronica, featuring both instrumental and lyrical tracks. It was recorded during the well-known Boulder, CO flood of 2013, where HOLLINGSWORTH was holed up in studio, fearing water would pour onto his gear. SPEED OF LIFE brings together feature performances from many great artists and friends Hollingsworth has surrounded himself with over recent years including Dave Watts (drums – The Motet), Garrett Sayers (bass – The Motet), Dan Schwindt (guitar), Jason Hann (percussion – The String Cheese Incident), Michael Kang (guitar – The String Cheese Incident), Dominic Lalli (saxophone – Big Gigantic), Bonnie Paine (vocals – Elephant Revival), Gabriel Mervine (trumpet – The Motet), Matt Pitts (saxophone — The Motet), Kim Dawson (vocals — The Motet), and LaDamion Massey (vocals).
About Kyle Hollingsworth
Thirty years ago, with a wealth of desire and incredible ability, Hollingsworth set out on a career in music. Today, as a versatile member of acclaimed jam masters The String Cheese Incident, Hollingsworth is revered by both peers and fans for his ability to write and perform in a mosaic of styles, from rock to classical, ragtime to bebop. Playing in SCI has bestowed on him the kind of fearlessness a composer needs to flirt with such disparate genres.
