The alt-country group Lines West and singer-songwriter Kyle Duke perform Wednesday, June 3, at Best Video Performance Space. The music starts at 8 PM and the cover is $5.
Compared to Wilco and Big Star, Lines West feature a wide range of American rock traditions. Lines West is a four-piece group co-fronted by John Radzin on guitar and vocals and Brian Larney on keyboard, guitar, and vocals. Radzin and Larney formed Lines West in May 2013. “Stop Look and Listen,” their first record, was co-produced by Radzin and Larney (under their production moniker JAYBEE).
Fueled by the songwriting tandem of Radzin and Larney, “Stop Look and Listen” is a unique blast of rootsy pop/rock described by Review Stalker as as “perfectly crafted pop songs that should be all over terrestrial radio at the very least”.
Kyle Duke is a young artist, songwriter, and producer. A student of NYU’s Clive Davis Institute of Recorded Music class of 2019, he is currently in the production and promotion stages of his debut EP “Cigarettes And Lovers,” which will be available later in 2015 through Factory Underground Records and distributed by ILS/Caroline/Universal Distribution.
His solo performances combine elements of indie rock, blues, and folk, into a unique, guitar-driven one-man show. Kyle has also worked closely with a number of bands, most recently playing electric guitars on a number of tracks off fellow Factory Underground artist Edisun’s upcoming sophomore album, “Collision.”
