“Two Big Holes” by Kyle Martin Song
Kyle’s Description of His Music
- “West Rock”
- Kyle used to learn classic “honky tonk” country songs but he would play them on an electric guitar with lots of distortion.
Intro Song “Alien Cowboy”
- The idea came from an acoustic guitar riff late at night.
- It took a while for the idea to take form once the acoustic riff was established.
- Once Kyle started thinking about the words “Alien Cowboy”, the song hit it’s tipping point and the rest of the song was written without many strikes of writer’s block.
- Kyle is a big fan of science fiction shows like “Star Trek” and “Star Wars” (this was part of the inspiration behind “Alien Cowboy”.
- He also identifies with the title because in a way he thinks he represents the idea of an alien cowboy.
“It was everything I wanted it to be.”
- Kyle plays all of the instruments in studio except of the drums.
- Eddie Garcia (local musician) played the drums on both of the records.
- Jesse Korman helped Kyle produce the record at Elephonic Studios.
- Little silly, little arrogant.
“Its a little different.😉”
- He enjoys writing songs with a storyline.
- Likes to from personal experiences because Kyle feels he can put more into a song if he feels personally connected to the story.
- If any type of idea hits Kyle, he will do his best to write it down on anything he can. Even if its a gum wrapper.
- He will keep his idea with him throughout the day and slowly add onto it as the day progresses.
- Once he has a few lines written he usually starts to think of a guitar part without even touching an instrument.
- In some cases, Kyle will think of an idea and then come back to it months later and use his new perspective as inspiration to finish his half written song idea.
- Kyle is always searching for a great experience where the crowd is providing a “symbiotic relationship” with his performance.
- This usually happens more often when Kyle plays to a smaller crowd because there is less distraction for audience members.
Breakdown Song “Two Big Holes”
- Played in drop D tuning with a kappo on the second fret.
“Slowly but surely it turned into a murder ballad.”
- “Two Big Holes was one of the first songs that Kyle did in the studio.
- The lyrics stemmed from a hypothetical conversation that ends up with a tour of two graves.
