Dave Jenkins – Jaime Kyle and Friends
Lead singer of Pablo Cruise, plus widely-covered singer-songwriter with her band
In 1987, Dave joined former Doobie Bros. drummer, Keith Knutsen, and guitarist, John McFee, and Credence Clearwater bass player, Stu Cook in the hard drivin’ country rock band, Southern Pacific.
1989: Enter Kapono Beamer. Through an introduction by famed environmental artist, George Sumner, Dave and Kapono immediately hit it off and began writing music together. Dream Hawaii was becoming a reality, and the chance to write and sing with one of Hawaii’s favorite sons was a great opportunity.
Before Taylor Swift and Miranda Lambert, there was Jaime Kyle.
Jaime was the first female rock artist to be signed to a major record deal out of Nashville. Her albums “The Passionate Kind” (Atco/Atlantic), “Back from Hollywood” (Now and Then, England) and “The Best of My Heart” (Frontiers, Italy and Nippon Crown, Japan) were critically acclaimed on Album Rock Radio. Throughout Europe she was dubbed “The Goddess of Hard Rock.”
“It was difficult breaking through. There weren’t many female producers and engineers, maybe a couple, and I was one of them.” Jaime learned to be scrappy and creative. When she was missing a musician for a Nashville session, she scoped out local bar bands and hired a bass player on the spot for a midnight session. The chain of events led to Nancy Wilson of Heart recording Jaime’s song “Stranded.”
The word “no” was never an option. When a record executive listened to a demo tape of “Wild One” and threw it down the hall, Jaime didn’t miss a beat. She picked up the broken tape, fixed it, and the demo found its way to Faith Hill. The rest is history.
Jaime writes for herself, but that doesn’t stop industry greats from covering her music. From singing tours in the U.S. and Europe to writing and recording sessions in Nashville, New York, and Los Angeles, Jaime Kyle continues to garner respect. “Everything I’ve gotten in this business is from the merit of the songs. The place where poetry, melody, and emotion meet are where you’ll find me and my music.”
