The past 3 years have brought Lyle Divinsky from subway platforms to elite stages with living legends. This unsuspecting soul man continues to prove that he owns any stage that he walks his bare feet onto. His powerful presence brings love and light to even the most sterile crowd. Lyle has been featured on national television as one of FuseTV’s artists to watch and was awarded the Songwriters Hall of Fame Abe Olman Scholarship (of which John Legend received in 2002). In 2014, Divinsky brought together an all-star team of soul music’s rising stars for his highly anticipated full-length release due this May. Producer/bass extraordinaire Calvin Turner (Raphael Saadiq, Joe Cocker, Trombone Shorty), prodigal multi-instrumentalist Louis Cato (John Scofield, Marcus Miller, Bobby McFarrin), rising soul superstar/pianist Nigel Hall (Lettuce, Soulive, Warren Haynes), and songwriter/guitar god-in-training Adam Agati (Marcus Miller, Ludacris, Marc Broussard), were brought together along with some special guests and the best horns and strings Nashville has to offer. Divinsky, aka the Sasquatch of Soul, is the barefoot, boisterous, big-voiced Mainer who “doesn’t front: he sings soul and R&B, and that’s that. There are no tags or modifiers needed.” (Todd Richard, The Portland Phoenix).
