    After years of collaboration, Kai has a beguiling new solo project. Drawing from past experiences but seeking to explore new sonic terrain, Kai has written a set of songs that is set to establish him as one of Nashville’s most unique voices. Tracks like “Perpetually Out Of Fashion” distill years of Kai’s musical influences - folk, indie, and a strong pop sensibility - into mere minutes, making for a listening experience that refreshingly defies genre and leaves us like a late-night snacker - satisfied but secretly hoping for more. “Sweet Abandon” is a bare bones slow waltz that showcases Kai’s yearning vocals atop a warm backdrop of old-time strings. These tracks are just a sampling of what listeners can expect from his Perpetually Out Of Fashion EP, to be released later this year. Recorded and self-produced, the Perpetually Out Of Fashion EP also showcases his instrumental talents – he played almost every instrument himself – as well as cameos from a few distinguished friends (his critically-acclaimed roommate Langhorne Slim sings a background vocal on “Baby Where”, and inimitable Appalachian fiddler Rayna Gellert shows up on “Sweet Abandon”).

    Comes in a hand-crafted Stumptown Printers Package, with artwork by Shawn Hall.

lyrics

I'ma waking up early in the morning
Just me and the sun…rise
And a clear blue sky

The birds are singing sweet and easy
And if they have a song to sing
Well then so do i

I got this feeling and it's hard to explain it but I know that it's right (I know that it's right)
Like every little thing I ever wanted or dreamed of
Well it's already mine (weird chord)
already mine

So this is an ordinary morning
Half the people awake
Half the people are still asleep and dreaming away

The grocer organizes oranges
The ferry whistle blows
It just keeps going going going gone

I got this feeling and it's hard to explain it but I know that it's right
Like every little thing I ever wanted or dreamed of
Well it's already mine
Somewhere in time (2nd chorus)
