Caleb Hyles is known the world over for his wide range of Youtube covers. From Broadway to anime to Top 40, Hyles has a bigger-than-life voice. After years of giving covers of their own, 2022 marks the start of a new musical adventure.
January 14, 2022 is the official release date of his first album consisting of original songs, “In One Breath”. This twelve-track debut album gives listeners a glimpse into the human experience, inspires them to ask questions, face doubt and find solace. With each song, listeners will understand what it means to be truly alive and present.
Since one of his first covers released in 2014, Caleb has since won over millions of people with the voice and passion he puts to play. Now listeners can really get to know him, starting with his debut single “Sometimes You Just Forget Things”.
When it comes to this song, Hyles comments “Many are all too familiar with the diseases and conditions that affect memory. While this song deals with this topic in a linear fashion, it also talks about that fear we all have because of the value we place on memory. It’s one of the few songs on the record with little “light” at its conclusion, but the reconciliation of this piece, I believe, comes from listening to the album in its entirety. It’s also the song that shaped a lot of the direction my album took in relation to art. I’ve always loved art on the theme of psychological horror, liminal space, and environmental degradation. The challenge after that decision was how to create an album that wasn’t strictly horror-themed, but could still work with the art that was made. Sometimes you just forget things that are talking about a very real, very uncomfortable and deeply moving part of our day to day life; memory and the loss of it. Even without condition of speeding up the process, we will all continue to lose this thing we cherish. Perhaps it is possible to live today knowing that we are shaped by what happened to us, and not by what we remember? Perhaps it is possible to find present peace knowing that, even if we forget everything, there is someone we know who still remembers it to us? Maybe knowing that “something” happened is enough? “
Generations of passionate musicians have helped Caleb find his voice in the world, and now with “In One Breath” he hopes to do the same for others.
