Kurt Vile Biography - Cult Favourite
stars are meant to shine alone - and this slacker rock hero shines brighter than most in this business. The Philadelphia-residing
singer/guitarist used to be a member of critically-lauded band The War On Drugs, but from 2008 has carved out an impeccable
career alone with four psych-tinged album stunners. Influenced as much by bar room rockers like Bruce Springsteen as he is
psychedelic types such as Pink Floyd, Vile's solo path began in understated fashion with a clutch of lo-fi home recordings.
However, things were soon to expand, as his amazing finger-picking guitar skills and dream-tinged vocals earned him a higher
profile than the band he left. It was 2011's Smoke Ring For My Halo, a modern classic that topped many album of the
year lists, that truly announced him as a once-in-a-lifetime talent that's only set to expand as 2013 album Wakin on a
Pretty Daze is toured around the world. Having already wowed the crowds at events such as Latitude, anticipation couldn't
be higher for his forthcoming UK shows.
