Watch List: Lyle Divinsky - Hit Man
With a soulfully resonant voice and a musical sensibility steeped in the best traditions of soul music, 'I've always been a huge lover of soul...especially the old school soul, I was raised on it', Lyle Divinsky, also known as the 'Sasquatch of Soul', gives a live rendition of 'Hit Man' at the Rockwood Music Hall, a lost lover causing him to emphatically question Cupid's absence as he nurses a broken heart.
Saying, 'I was raised on Motown, and the fun loving, good times, sing about love kind of soul, and really want to bring that back into light...I kind of do my best to write in that sense but also bring the new influence that I have involved with that', Divinsky's passion for music saw him leave Maine for the bright lights of New York and embrace the life of a singer/songwriter, playing bars, restaurants and even the subway to get by. Releasing the album 'Traveling Man' in 2009, which was followed in 2012 by the 3-song The Sasquatch Sessions, he has been playing to sold out venues in New York, Boston and Washington D.C., and recently was invited to appear along side Allen Stone and Frances Cone at BMI Presents at Rockwood Music Hall, and, as he crowd funds his new album, Divinsky will be soon returning to Rockwood for a show with Nicky Egan and the Nat Osborn Band.
