Scenic Route

“Scenic Route” drives you through the winding but beautiful ways of life. Songs about the pursuit of love and the inner truth of the soul tell the many life experiences of a young man, who deeply insists on looking for the beauty hidden in every corner of this scenic route.

Techno Drug Store

“Techno Drug Store” marks a sonic leap on for Kiol. 

His folk-rock influences of old – Nutini, Mumford & Sons and Ben Howard – still surface in his catchy choruses and use of acoustic guitar, but self-produced using Logic, the new songs are more electronic, with hip hop drums, dashes of disco and lashings of playful pop.

Collaborations
& Studio Experiences

In 2018, at the Grouse Lodge Studios (Dublin), Kiol collaborated with Paolo Nutini’s producer Dani Castelar on his second single Hard Things.

In 2019, at the famous Bus Space Studios in London, he worked with producer Dimitri Tikovoi (Placebo, Blondie) on the songs Mallow and No Peace.
