‘Showboat Honey’ shares its name with Kyle’s backing band indicating that after his previous two solo efforts that he and his band may have solidified into a more cohesive song writing unit.

All of the songs on the album are pretty good but the lineup in the middle of the record from Track 4: ‘Blackhole/Joyride’ all the way into track 7: ‘Buzzkill Caterwaul’ is where Craft & the band’s ‘craft’ (sorry) really shines. All in the span of about 15 minutes of sonic bliss they showcase some of their most soul-filled storytelling, grandiose balladeering, delicate tenderness & larger-than-life arena showboating moments to date.  It’s a fun ride.

Favourite Tracks: ‘Deathwish Blue’, ‘Blackhole/Joyride’ & ‘Buzzkill Caterwaul’
