So Hot It Hurts - Single



It may have been his clumsiness. Perhaps how timid he was when he arrived in Vancouver three years ago from the small town of Vernon, BC. But whatever it was that kept Kyle Richardson’s demeanor so shy and mouth so tightly shut made the singer’s impact all the more shocking when he finally let his extraordinary voice be heard. It was clear a world-class act had arrived.

Having explored his vocal ability in Vernon under the watchful guise of mentor and Juno nominee, Sazacha Red Sky/Nancy Nash (Bob Hope, Bon Jovi, Cher, Loverboy), Kyle found himself performing alongside her at Komasket Music Festival and the Rare Earth Jazz and Blues Festival while competing in and winning local singing competitions and Battle-of-the-Bands. After opening for Steppenwolf and placing first runner up in Okanagan Star Search, it wasn’t long before news of his raw talent spread to Vancouver’s acclaimed mixing engineer Mike Fraser (Metallica, Elvis Costello, Hedley, ACDC, Aerosmith, Led Zeppelin) and world-class producer Jeff Dawson (Daniel Powter, State of Shock, Kelly Rowland, The Dudes), who invited Kyle to sing for them and consequently saw something worth getting excited about in the young talent.

Following his dreams, Kyle found an apartment in Vancouver and began performing backing vocals on any albums he could coming out of the city, including 2012 releases by The Dudes, Elias, and Seventh Rain. Working as a bar back at a popular nightclub, Kyle began to let his creative thoughts flow while clearing tables. Week after week, he brought new ideas to Dawson’s studio and was introduced to award-winning songwriter Laurell (two top #10 singles, Billboard World Song Contest winner) for further development. Kyle found himself honing his writing skills with top #10 radio artists Stef Lang, Andrew Allen – even Carly Rae Jepsen, and when his new track “Bleed Forever” landed a hit placement on the season premiere of ‘The LA Complex’, (MuchMusic, CTV, The CW Network), it was the realization of the first step in the singer’s destined path.

With momentum building towards his first radio single, “So Hot It Hurts” – a steamy vocal laid over stripped-down, heavy beats – the 24-year-old is gearing up for the release of his first music video and spring tour announcement in early 2013. Packing a cartridge of hit songs to match his phenomenal voice, Kyle Richardson – the small town boy with colossal talent – is set to blow his fans away.
