World Cafe Next: Kyle Craft

Kyle Craft.
Kyle Craft.

As he was growing up in Shreveport, La., Kyle Craft's primary source of musical inspiration was a David Bowie greatest-hits compilation that he brought home from a big-box store. Years later, Craft tried outrunning the heartbreak of the end of a relationship and moved to Portland, Ore., where he made a series of home recordings that have become his debut album, Dolls Of Highland.

Craft dedicates the album, which is influenced both by Bowie and by the sounds of Louisiana, to the people of Shreveport. Hear two songs in this week's World Cafe Next segment, above.
