Get ready for a fall pop song for falling in love when you know it will not work out. "Unlove" by Lyle Kam is a cutesy electro pop love song for the hopeless romantic in all of us.
New single, “Unlove,” captures the desperation that comes with wanting someone so badly, but always being out of reach. The feeling of falling in love so hard that you become flabbergasted by just their presence. Kam has such an incredibly easy pop quality to his voice, it is the kind of music where you press play and just keep him on shuffle.
Engineering student by day and musician by night. Toronto-based singer-songwriter Lyle Kam has developed his sound to reach mainstream popularity, without losing track of where he comes from and the values he holds.
Like many before him, Lyle started out as an acoustic cover artist, posting songs on YouTube and Soundcloud. A couple of years into his musical journey, he realized how important it was to find your own voice and sound. Drawing on inspiration from a range of artists, from Ed Sheeran all the way to Lauv, Lyle’s curiosity for creating something different led him to sound design and production.
Lyle continues to create music that contemplates the struggles of life and love, all while working to obtain his university degree. His upcoming EP will tackle all these themes with a fresh perspective, with the goal of keeping his acoustic soul front and center.
Lyle has performed at numerous events and shows all around Ontario and has high hopes to grow his showmanship as he makes his way through a tricky musical landscape. Lyle is proving that ordinary people can have extraordinary talents when they put their heart and soul into their art.
