KYLE HENDERSON

Brand New Chance

2014-04-09

Kyle Henderson's musical career has been a journey filled with success alongside hard times. He first made it to the big leagues with Whiteface, a blues/rock, funk band in the 70s. Later he recorded two studio albums with The Producers. The band had success throughout the late 70s and early 80s, particularly through MTV. Though Henderson left the band, he has recently returned for special shows. After leaving The Producers, Henderson moved to L.A. to pursue a solo career and recorded a Christian rock album about which, in an interview with BRM, he said: "I think the record really sucked... the songs were derivative." With the help of fans via Kickstarter, he released Life Goes On in 2011, after he went through a divorce and his son, Daniel, committed suicide. His most recent release is Brand New Chance, featuring Henderson (guitar and vocals), Michael Ripp (guitar), John Christensen (bass), and Chris Sandocal (drums), along with guests Jimmy Voegli (piano and organ) and Steve Hamilton (percussion). The new blues-rock album was released in November 2013 and has garnered praise from The Isthmus, Blues Rock Magazine, and Madison magazine. The album's title track, "Brand New Chance," features Henderson's powerful vocals and Voegli's organ. "Perfect Day" with clear influences from the rock of the later 70s and early 80s.
