Today’s song is “As Kids” by Colton Kayser. The Monmouth Beach, NJ based singer/songwriter has made a name for himself in the reemerging Asbury Park scene with his talents shining on stages and shoreline boardwalks.
This song is off his latest album Place to Settle due out July 30th. To celebrate the album Kayser will be having a record release show that day at the Wonder Bar in Asbury Park, NJ (get details here).
The 10 song sophomore LP finds Kayser examining and growing through the trials and tribulations of an artist in flux. Life after Grad School, a first real break up and the after effects of Hurricane Sandy all combine to color the themes of love, loss and the search for inner serenity on Kayser’s latest full length effort.
“There were a lot of variables to my life, and I was just trying to figure out how to find some peace somewhere,” shares Kayser. “I started finding my way, and the last song on the record (‘As Kids’) is an affirmation that I’ve been right where I belong from the beginning, and I’m doing what is right for me.”
His sound is easy listening with guitar driven melodies that are sweet as the lyrics that he croons.
