Alessandro Bossi, better known as Kiol, has shared his latest single ‘Hard Things.’ The track is packed with pop melodies and a bluesy sound, giving credit to his influences Paolo Nutini, Jake Bugg, and James Bay. The 20 year old soul-rock singer/songwriter recorded the track at Grouse Lodge Studio in Ireland with Paolo Nutini’s producer Dani Castelar and musicians Gavin Fitzjohn (brass and piano) and Dave Nelson (co-writing and guitar.)
The young artist boasts shared stages with a host of influential artists: Manu Chao, Agnes Obel, and Archive to name a few, and has played main European clubs, such as O2 Academy Islington, The Garage, Tramshed, Botanique, Melkweg, Refelktor, sPazio 211, Kulturefabrik as well as Eurosonic-Noorderslag, Waves Vienna and Apolide Festival.
Despite its title, latest single ‘Hard Things’ is a tender, passionate voyage across windswept landscapes; familiar, lionhearted voice work, lively strummed guitar patterns and an aura of cinematic proportions. ‘Hard Things’ is circumstantial evidence that Kiol has expanded upon an already polished, enlightened sound.
