Who is this guy, anyway?
Kyle Donovan is a singer-songwriter, guitar player, and educator based in Denver, Colorado.
Born and raised in Upstate New York, he migrated to Colorado in 2009 to pursue higher education at the University of Colorado. During his time at CU-Boulder, Donovan studied Political Science and Philosophy while leading the state’s oldest a cappella group, the Buffoons, serving as their music director and composing arrangements for an award-winning studio album. His love of music and performance has now taken him all around the country as a solo performer.
"In Philosophy classes, we would sometimes discuss the question of whether people are fundamentally good or evil. I always came down somewhere in the middle, but after touring the country and seeing the generosity, curiosity, and good will of so many strangers, I became convinced -- People are good."
The Kindness of Strangers received its name from this story and the common bond that Donovan found in his 2015 tour from New York to Los Angeles. The album was originally released with with his band, Miles Wide.
