Kevin Krauter's 'Toss Up' Out Now!

Hoops Kevin Krauter Release Day Toss Up

Indiana songwriter Kevin Krauter's new debut full length on Bayonet Records entitled 'Toss Up' is out today! In between tours, Kevin spent long hours in his basement, guitars and vintage keyboards his only company, and tested out ideas, explored new sonic avenues, savored new sounds, and taught himself how to play a few instruments. The secret tension on 'Toss Up,' the engine that drives these songs, is melody propelled by rhythm and melancholy fended off by the exuberance of simply creating art. We're so excited to share this record with the world and we hope you enjoy it as much as we do! 

Prior to its release date, we've put out three singles from 'Toss Up' including "Rollerskate," "Keep Falling in Love," and "Suddenly." You can now pick up the limited edition color vinyl pressing, the black vinyl pressing, the CD, or the cassette of 'Toss Up'  online or at your local record store!
