Biography

Kyle Phelan is very accomplished for performing for such a short period of time. At seventeen, the budding star had a goal of creating his first album. With the help of a devoted friend and song-writing partner, Sean Mitchell, Kyle produced his first CD of 7 original songs. With three CD's chock full of original songwriting at the age of 20, performing with a full band was the natural next step.

The Kyle Phelan Band consists of a core group of musicians, including Kyle's cousin Paul LeBlanc on drums and his funk bassist Tony Jones. As the newest member of the band, John McCammon churns out Stevie Ray Vaughan-like leads on electric guitar, adding a blues flavor that comes as a natural compliment to Kyle's songwriting.

The band has appeared on San Diego’s local KUSI-TV’s morning news program where they performed several of the songs from their latest self-titled CD release. The Kyle Phelan band was also invited to perform for a third consecutive year at San Diego’s yearly "Concerts on the Square" event at Horton Plaza, sponsored by KPRI radio and Ch.7/39 NBC television station in San Diego.

Other venues performed at include the House of Blues in San Diego and Las Vegas, Canes in Mission Beach, the Belly Up in Solana Beach, and Lestat's West.
Recently the band has relocated to Phoenix to begin pre-production on their most highly anticipated album to date. They're keeping their chops up performing 3-4 nights a week in the Phoenix metro area creating quite a name and drawing more people to every show.

Lyrics

Sleepless Nights

Written By: Kyle Phelan & Sean Mitchell

You gave us a name
To try to explain
Just where we stand to everyone
And I hope it doesn't change

Whatever we gain
Let's stay the same
Cause I love how I'm not like anyone
Let's let the world catch up to us

Cause baby I don't wanna just get along this time
I wanna be closer than anything
That you're lovin' all your life

And if you find it hard to sleep sometimes
Know for sure you are on my mind
If we both can't sleep let's both have a sleepless night

Where do we go
We both know
That we can't stay up, oh, every night
I think we should try to sleep sometimes

If this problem we face is our worst in a day
Then I guess I simply can't complain
I'll just close my eyes when you're away

Baby I don't wanna just get along this time
I wanna be closer than anything
That you're lovin' all your life

And if you find it hard to sleep sometimes
Know for sure you are on my mind
If we both can't sleep let's both have a sleepless night

Dreaming takes me too far away from you
And if staying up is something we both want to do
Then who's to say it's time for bed?
I'd rather lie awake instead

There's no subsitute for holding you

Baby I don't wanna just get along this time
I wanna be closer than anything
That you love, ohh.

And if you find it hard to sleep sometimes
Know for sure you are on my mind
If we both can't sleep let's both have a sleepless night

If we both can't sleep let's both have a sleepless night

If we both can't sleep let's both have a sleepless night

Take My Love

Written By: Kyle Phelan & Sean Mitchell

Why don't you take
My love
Cause it's all that I have that you can hold

Why don't you take
Take my love
I know it's time that you want
And it's hard when I hit the road

So take my love

It was never my plan
To leave you lonely
The way that I do

But I don't think it's fair
For you to say
That I chose music over you

Don't you know
I hear melodies with every word you say to me
So baby don't go
Cause I couldn't do this if you didn't stay with me

Why don't you take my love
Cause it's all that I have that you can hold
Why don't you take
Take my love

I know it's time that you want
And it's hard when I hit the road

So take my love

Don't be unsure
Or feel insecure
About where you fit inside my world
Don't even start
About where you fit inside of my heart

Why don't you take my love
Cause it's all that I have that you can hold

Why don't you take
Take my love
I know it's time that you want
And it's hard when I hit the road

So take my love

And you should know
If my back was against the wall
I would choose you

And you should know
I would drop everything if it made you uncomfortable

And you should know
That wherever this takes me
I gotta have you next to me baby...

So why don't you take my love
Cause it's all that I have that you can hold

Why don't you take
Take my love
I know it's time that you want
And it's hard when I hit the road

So take my love

Don't Go

Written By: Kyle Phelan & Sean Mitchell

My friend you just don't get it
But I have to admit
I've been down that road

Ready to die to give her what she needs
But what she needs she doesn't know

And you can't be
Her missing link cause she doesn't think that
She has a problem at all

Still she cries,

"Don't go, don't go!"
Leave that alone
Give that girl space
Maybe she'll grow

And I know, I know
She'll be hating the days when she's away but
You can't go home 'til she's whole
Whole on her own

I know there's times when she's heavy on your mind and you wanna call
Those are the times when you just press rewind and not call at all

And you can't be
Her missing link cause she doesn't think that
She has a problem at all

Still she cries,

"Don't go, don't go!"
Leave that alone
Give that girl space
Maybe she'll grow

And I know, I know
She'll be hating the days when she's away but
You can't go home 'til she's whole
Whole on her own

"Don't go, don't go!"
Leave that alone
Give that girl space
Maybe she'll grow

And I know, I know
She'll be hating the days when you're away but
I swear she will cry,

"Don't go, don't go!"
Leave that alone
Give that girl space
Maybe she'll grow

And I know, I know
She'll be hating the days when she's away but
You can't go home 'til she's whole
Whole on her own

La da dum do,
La da dum do,
La da dum do...
