About The Working Poor

Hi internet people!
So i initially decided to use this platform as a Guinea pig to basically test out new songs and see what tunes fans like.. All of the recordings on here are just live acoustic clips of songs in the rawest form possible.. I just picked up my guitar and pressed record so no retakes or anything like that.. They were not even recorded in my studio but just on my iPad using GarageB ... read more

You might recognize Lyles as he has been a session musician for manny years. Performing with a wide variety of groups both at festivals and in the studio. He is particularly excited to be working on an Album currently slated for release July 19th 2021. He is also working with several other groups and will announce other release dates and collaboration Artist in the near future! This site is utilized for unreleased raw live recordings to gauge potential fan interest. Although none of these songs will likely make the Album if you strongly feel a particular track should that potential could manifest.

Originally I did this as a basic reference for myself but then decided screw it.. why not toss some of them on here to get some feelers? I mean I kinda figured maybe a few hundred people will hear them a day at the very most right?
Well.. ????
There’s thousands of plays everyday and the songs have been leaked to all major music streaming platforms like Pandora, Spotify ext.. so I started trying to fight with them to have them removed but not having any luck lol..
so instead I will be in the recording studio to give you all the professional recordings you deserve.
I have received so manny messages basically saying how fans like how real they are.
On the full studio versions I will keep them honest and simple. I will play guitar and vocals then overdub and play cello,piano,bass and percussion to help paint the full picture for the listeners.
I will also continue to post some raw live versions on here to basically give you a sneak peak and get some fan feedback.
Thank you so much for all the support and love.

Hope everyone is having a beautiful day !

New song posted with lyrics posted as well.
Just a live acoustic version for now so sorry in advance for the dreadful quality on the tracks but will be in studio soon to start album !
Most Likely none of the songs I have posted yet will make the album but if there’s a particular song you think should please let me know and I will see if we can get it in!!

Cheers
