Originally formed within the California seaside town of San Luis Obispo, the music of Small Wings totally imbibes the surroundings in which it had been conceived. Using a loosely set up account that revolves around Small Wings frontman and songwriter Kyle Field and occasionally contains drummer Adam Selzer, keyboardist Rob Kieswetter, and bassist Tag Leece, the band’s debut on Strolling Information, Discover Worlds of Question, was a dreamy, balladic tribute towards the surreal areas of the modern Californian landscape. Filled up with somewhat off-key stories of skateboarding legends, freeway visitors jams, as well as the concealed beach canyons from the Western world Coast, Small Wings’ 1999 debut fused a postmodern Seaside Children ideology with warm alt-country. After collaborations numerous regional performers, including Jason Lytle of Grandaddy, Kyle Field still left his California musical family members for the greener pastures of Portland, OR, to allow new section of the tiny Wings almanac end up being influenced by the new naturalism from the Pacific Northwest also to continue the rings exploration of nontraditional song structures. Making use of their Internet-exclusive sophomore work, Wonder City, Small Wings put into the their loosely conceptual “Question Trilogy” in 2000, offering the initiatives of Kyle Field and Whitney Moon. Wonderue finished the trilogy in 2002; afterwards that calendar year, Light Green Leaves appeared. The following calendar year, Harvest Joy made an appearance, and Field continuing his prolific streak with 2004’s Magic Wand. A calendar year later, K Information released his following record of abstract bursts, entitled Grow, and he transferred toward even more traditional pastures using the sleepy Soft Pow’r in 2007. Following full duration outings consist of 2011’s pastoral and heartfelt Dark Lawn, 2013’s Last, and 2015’s Explains.
