TVD Premiere: Colton Kayser, “Save My Soul”

“I was flitting from job to job when I wrote this song, and I felt kind of stuck. I think I just needed to reset my situation, and this song was the first step for me to do that. I quit all the jobs I was working, took all of the money I saved, and made this record. I think sometimes people get so entrenched in their current situation, that they fail to realize they can change things anytime they want. It’s just taking that first step that’s tough, and once you do it, the rest is easy.”
Colton Kayser

Today we have the pleasure of premiering Colton Kayser’s newest single “Save My Soul” from his upcoming LP Place To Settle. The single’s nostalgic, worn out blues is beautifully captured by the swirling B3 organ and pristine vocal which walks along some well plotted guitar chords.

The themes of “hometown burnout” are treated with a compassionate sense of self-reliance, avoiding the venomous, no-accountability diatribes that Dylan imbues his kiss-offs with. And it is here where Kayser separates himself from the current pack of alt country troubadours—avoiding a put-on self-importance by adding a genuine sweetness and likability to his contemporary songwriting.

Place To Settle is out July 30th and can be pre-ordered through his website.
