"You Will Dance Again" and "It's Too Late" from the
new CD "Solitary Road" are both getting airplay at Hot AC station
B107.3 in Lincoln, Nebraska, with other stations around the country ready
to get on board. Stay tuned!
Kyle recently held his first in-store CD signing for "Solitary Road"
at Nebraska's big music retailer, Homer's Music, in Lincoln where J.Pat
from B107.3 was on hand to broadcast live. Kyle performed songs from the
album and signed CD's, which sold briskly, landing "Solitary Road"
among some pretty big names on Homer's national artists' sales figures
for their entire chain:

Road" will be on listening posts soon at each of Homer's seven locations
in Omaha and Lincoln, along with a Nebraska cable TV advertising promotion.
Expansion to additional markets is being planned. Kyle calls it "My
Jimmy Carter strategy"... whatever that means!
On his recent trek to the plains, Kyle co-hosted a radio show with Program
Director J.Pat Miller at Hot AC station B107.3 in Lincoln, Nebraska. Kyle
was on the air for nearly two hours reading spots promoting the station's
sponsors, taking calls from listeners, giving away autographed cds, discussing
his new album, and inventing weather reports. (Yes, we said "inventing!")
It was definitely an entertaining morning and, what's more, you can now
listen to the conveniently edited show online at www.kylevincent.com!
Running time, about 45 minutes.
A FIRST IN
FIFTH AT FIRTH!
Following the radio show, Kyle surprised a 5th grade class at Norris Elementary
School in Firth, Nebraska with a personal visit. (Huh? You think Firth
sounds small? You oughta hang out in East Firth!) The students and their
teacher, Mr. Craig Potter, had adopted Kyle's song "5000 Heroes"
to inspire classroom discussion and essay writing following the events
of September 11th, 2001. It was a priceless moment when Kyle was introduced
to the class as "the man who wrote that song." The kids knew
every word of the lyric and Kyle stayed with the class for over two hours
as he listened to their essays, took questions, sang for the class, and
signed autographs. Many thanks to Mr. Potter and Norris Elementary for
a wonderfully inspiring visit.
That evening, Kyle performed for Nebraska Governor Mike Johanns' Inauguration
in front of 6,000 guests at the Devaney Center in Lincoln. By the Governor's
request, he sang "5000 Heroes" during the Grand March ceremony
where all of the state representatives are formally presented. The Inaugural
Ball took place immediately following and Kyle was able to exchange greetings
and political discussion with many who attended. He was in black tie heaven!
"As long as I didn't mention that I was a vegan born and raised in
Berkeley, all was cool," Kyle jokes. "Truthfully, the Gov and
his wife were incredibly gracious hosts, and very genuine people. It was
a tremendous honor to sing for them."
Distribution of the new album is already happening throughout the globe.
Deals in Japan, Portugal, UK, Spain, and other lands are either in place
or being closed. Special thanks to our many new friends in Japan who have
been ordering up "Solitary Road" in huge numbers!

OF THE YEAR
And, as if he ain't busy enough, somehow Mr. V found six hours to bike
75 miles in the Tour de Palm Springs, raising money for several charities.
Says Kyle, "Well, actually it was a Century, or a 100-miler, but
after about 50 miles I remembered that I forgot to train, and looked for
the next stop. Somehow I managed 25 more desert miles and collapsed on
a pile of bananas and Clif Bars in La Quinta. Hey, I think that could
be the title of the next album - 'Collapsed On A Pile Of Bananas And Clif
Bars In La Quinta!'"
