ROMANTICA / (ro-man’tik-ah) / n. / The fantastic tricks of gypsy men : a band of musicians originating in Minneapolis, in 2002, who are characterized by deeply felt poetic imagery enshrined in effortlessly emotive popular melodies suggestive of folk, country, and pop music histories; in similar traditions with Ryan Adams, Damien Rice and The Wallflowers. Winners of Minnesota Music’s “Best Americana Recording” in 2004 for their debut “It’s Your Weakness that I Want” and two consecutive awards in the International Songwriting Competition (2004, 2005), their talent has been promptly verified. The Pittsburh Tribune has suggested singer and songwriter “Ben Kyle may be the next notable musician to come from (Van) Morrison’s homeland” and New York’s Village Voice has prophesied “you’ll want to say you saw them now.” Kyle arrived in Minneapolis in ‘95 by way of Belfast, N. Ireland and his songs evoke an emotional gravity and poetic sensibility surely not unaffected by his boyhood backdrop.
