About KaiL Baxley:
Self-described as “soul swagger” which captures its precise tone and sound almost exactly, KaiL Baxley explains “It’s kinda got a throbbing swing to it all for some reason. It just comes out that way… it gives you a little swagger when you walk.” His 2013 critically-hailed debut album Heatstroke/The Wind and the War was nominated for NPR’s “Album of the Year”, and earned him the enviable laud as “One of NPR’s top new artists” by All Songs Considered and “absolute perfection” by Caught in the Carousel. Famed producer David Tyson (Joe Cocker, Hall & Oates) said of KaiL, “His voice and his songs are simply arresting! They have a way of haunting you to the bone.”
