Kyle Craft's musical story begins in Shreveport, La., where he found inspiration in the swamp music of his home state and the glam rock of David Bowie. Those two genres meet on his debut album, "Dolls Of Highland," which he recorded in a laundry room. 

More from OpenAir Sessions:

Craft and his band recently came through Denver for a show at Lost Lake Lounge. He also stopped into our studio to perform four songs from the album and speak with Alisha Sweeney about sneaking into the Sub Pop Records office to drop off his demo, the seedy characters on his debut album and his classic rock influences.

Stream the full session above.

Songs performed:

  • "Eye Of The Hurricane"
  • "Future Midcity Massacre"
