Full Album Stream:
Kyle Gryphon is a multi-instrumentalist, songwriter and construction worker who resides on the Southern Shore of the Avalon Peninsula. Though playing accordion since the age of four—as well as performing in a diverse array of bands for many years—Isolation marks Gryphon’s first solo album.
While the name of the album is impeccably relevant to our current global situation, the name has been intact long before the COVID-19 pandemic confined everybody to their homes. Isolation was recorded in the latter part of 2019, and the CD was officially released in April (you can order your copy here).
“In isolation you’re free from thoughts or actions that are not your own, good or bad,” explains Gryphon. “As a single individual can become isolated, so can a large group in sort of a mass isolation creating like a hive mind or mob mentality.”
