With Year of the Tiger, Myles Kennedy opens himself up in ways that would be painfully, shockingly personal and intimate for anyone, much less for a revered rock and roll frontman. ?Songs like ?Blind Faith? or ?Nothing But a Name? are almost like open letters to my father, expressing an ache that?s never subsided,? he says. ?This record is my attempt to convey things that I?ve needed to express for a long time. What I found hiding in the deep, dark corners of my psyche was difficult to face, but in the end, what came out of the creative process was very cathartic.?
With the production and arrangements, too, Kennedy began with what he didn?t want, which was anything that felt too processed and slick. ?I wanted this recording to be about the vocal, so we kept the instruments arranged in a way so that my voice would be dominant in the mix,? he says. ?The recordings I love aren?t perfect. Going straight to tape, going for the song and the performance, making sure that the lyric is honest and resonates with you?the way to capture that is not to suck the life out of it. They call it wabi-sabi in Japanese culture, the idea of embracing beauty in imperfection.?
Even as a singer, Kennedy?three-time winner of Loudwire?s Vocalist of the Year award?was determined to explore a new range and approach. ?I was trying to keep things in a lower register,? he says, ?not relying on the vocal histrionics that I fall back on in a rock context. On this sonic canvas, I didn?t want to distract the listener from the depth of the song, what was paramount was how the lyric was conveyed emotionally.?
