“When I first heard Kyle Dion’s undeniable falsetto, one that will send a girl back to those ’90’s boy-band-gawking days when Justin Timberlake fronted the group that gave us “Gone,” I was automatically intrigued.” – Galore
“Kyle Dion takes the wheel in the Alternative R&B lane.” – NYLON
“A combination of intimate lyrics marinated over layers of smooth vocals complemented by incredible production…” – GoodMusicAllDay
“…guaranteed to make you swoon.” – SingersRoom
“The 21-year-old Wunderkind isn’t one to follow trends. – Billboard
L.A. via Florida singer/songwriter Kyle Dion takes us for a ride in his new EP, Painting Sounds. “The 21-year-old wunderkind isn’t one to follow trends,” Billboard said in their premiere of the release, which ranges from bright, rhythmic dance floor vibes to slinky late night R&B cuts, with jazz chords and hints of funk. “I named it Painting Sounds because I wanted to play with this sound I had created for myself, I wanted to push the sound past its limits sonically and lyrically,” Kyle Dion explains. “I knew I wanted to do a project where every song would have a completely different vibe from the next while still keeping that undercurrent of my own style.”
Kyle Dion has been spreading his smooth voice through collabs with artists like Austin Mahone and Kehlani, converting listener after listener into fans. Inviting you onboard with the opening track and most recent NYLON-debuted single, “Timed Out,” Kyle Dion delicately delivers his crisp vocals over a funky beat that he says “should make you feel happy.” Leading the way with his fresh falsetto, listeners were also met with “Get You Alone,” which debuted in December via GoodMusicAllDay, who praised the track as “a combination of intimate lyrics marinated over layers of smooth vocals complemented by an incredible production.” Journeying through the tracks, it’s easy to identify that Dion has an authentic, innovative R&B sound, combining elements of soul, jazz, and funk in an effortless manner.
