San Francisco Bay Area emerging artist Saul Kaye's vocal quality and song writing style have been compared to Sting. Both Artists bring years of experience in performance and teaching into a unique fusion in their songwriting and pop careers. Saul is also compared to fellow South African ex-patriot Dave Matthews for their dynamic acoustic guitar playing, emotive presence, and poignant lyrics.

"You've got a songwriter here who's bound to turn some important heads." - Cd BABY

Saul Kaye, "Doctor’s Orders"

Schooled in everything from traditional jazz to flamenco guitar to avant-garde fusion, Saul Kaye has a huge arsenal to choose from when he picks up his guitar and steps up to the microphone. Choosing the bluesy rock n’ roll medium for his 8th release is the obvious choice for the range of colloquial stories and tales he tells on this album. Kaye’s flamenco and blues influences really come out in these songs, and by layering his guitar over sparse honky tonk-like piano comps he sets a cozy western stage for songs like “Desert Blues,” “Rubyhill,” and “Hey Johnny Johnny.”

All of the tunes have a terrific narrative quality, telling stories about people in the dumps, down on their luck, skipping bail, low on money, losing in life and love. But with his powerful singing voice, Doctor Kaye orders his characters to take it easy and soak in the sun. “Angels fly cause they take themselves so lightly,” he sings on the title song.

Bio

San Francisco Bay Area emerging artist Saul Kaye's vocal quality and song writing style have been compared to Sting. Both Artists bring years of experience music performance and teaching into a unique fusion in their songwriting and pop careers. Saul is also compared to fellow South African ex-patriot Dave Matthews for their dynamic acoustic guitar playing, emotive presence, and poignant lyrics.
Saul has been writing songs for as long as he's been playing music ...and now he is finally giving his songs stage time. His songs range from acoustic alternate tuning folk ballads to Matthews-esque socially conscious pop. He also writes piano driven dance tunes complete with wailing electric guitar solos and delta blues style slide.
After playing over 200 shows in 2003, Saul has been touring to support his latest release this fall with an all star band throughout California, Idaho, and Montana and will be touring to New Zealand in Decmeber.
DOCTOR'S ORDERS has been reviewed in many publications and on several websites including indie-music.com, smother.net, thehereandther.net, and has been getting radio airplay on several college and commercial stations.
