Little Wings features the beautiful songwriting and distinctive voice of Kyle Field. His latest CD, Soft Pow'r, is a warm collection of intimate, lo-fi folk-pop, featuring a few guests from K Records. In the past Field has also worked with artists like M. Ward and Jason Lytle of Grandaddy.

Soft Pow'r is a fitting title for the album and most of the Little Wings releases. Kyle Field conjures mellow moods with a gentle guitar and voice. His layered falsetto weaves in and out while distant drums play subtle beats. The intimate production feels like the album was recorded in a small closet.

Kyle asks the question "What's the beep about?" over a steady soul tempo and wandering piano on "Beep About". The featured track, "Scuby" is a somber folk tune that opens the album with a solid melody.

The album was released on the Marriage Records subsidiary, RAD. In addition to making music, Kyle is also known for surfing and his artwork.
