New Jersey singer-songwriter Colton Kayser (Ky-zer) grew up daydreaming in class and writing songs by the binder. As he grew, so did his work ethic, and he has been quietly chipping away and perfecting his craft ever since.
A debut record, cross country touring, and countless gigs later, Kayser is set to release his second record, Place to Settle.
“This record is about dealing with the uncertainties of life and finding your way through them. There were a lot of variables in my life at the time, and they definitely influenced my writing.”
His sound has further cemented itself in the alt-country/americana world while retaining the melodic pop accessibility of his previous release.
The songwriter’s talents have not gone unnoticed, with nominations for Top Male Acoustic Act in the Asbury Music Awards in 2011, 2012, 2013, 2014, and 2015, and Top New Male Act at the 2012 Jersey Acoustic Music Awards.
His self-titled debut record has garnered praise as well with a nomination for Record of the Year at the 2014 Asbury Music Awards. Kayser's song “You and I” was nominated for Song of the Year also.
Place to Settle has just recently received recognition from the 2016 Asbury Music Awards with nominations for Record of the Year, Song of the Year ("Bad Guy"), Single Release of the Year ("Love of My Life"), and Music Video of the Year ("Love of My Life"). Kayser and his band have been nominated for Top Indie/Alt. Rock band as well.
Place to Settle is available now on iTunes, Amazon, Spotify and everywhere else there’s good stuff on the web.
