From an early age Kinsley has been around music. His father played guitar and sang at parties with friends and that image has always stuck with him. The turntable always had Elvis, Neil Diamond, Kris Kristofferson, Emmylou Harris, oldies among others. Picking up the guitar himself at age 13, he dabbled with it until the songwriting bug hit him and he’s been playing and writing since. Starting off playing in bars in Steamboat Springs, he’s been singing his songs in and around Denver for the last twelve years. His sound is unique ranging from countryish vocals, to hard edged blues merging into Americana/folk songs while incorporating intricate guitar work to accompany his songs. His passion is unmistakable, lost in every song like it’s part of his soul. READ MORE
