Indie Pop

A Boy and His Kite is music from Colorado artist Dave Wilton. His song, "Cover Your Tracks," was recently included in the film and soundtrack The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Pt. 2, quickly establishing this singer-songwriter as an emerging voice within indie music. Wilton's sound and influences have been shaped and inspired by a decade of helping other artists craft and create music in his Colorado recording studio, St. Ida's. A metaphor for a child being at the mercy of the wind, this self-titled album proves Wilton's ability to compose music in the places where struggle is met with hope. The lyrics reveal grounded storytelling intertwined with discovery, exploration, and romanticism. A Boy and His Kite layers vocal stylings likened to Ben Gibbard (Death Cab for Cutie) and Jeremy Enigk (Sunny Day Real Estate) with music that offers folk flavors, chimey electric guitars, and percussive orchestration to produce a collection of songs that are honest yet emotionally articulate.
