Kyle Thorton and the Company

Smooth, sweet and seductive, Kyle Thornton and the Company are the definition of user-friendly music. That’s not to say they try to be all things to all people, but if you like classic and modern soul, R&B and hip-hop, this isn’t just another band out of Boston. Kyle Thornton and the Company are the Roots, Al Green and D’Angelo all rolled into one. The former Richmond resident has assembled a stellar cast of players to realize his gospel-rooted vision as evidenced on the group’s new single, “Lemonade.” Its simplicity and careful pacing recalls “Still Bill”-era Bill Withers with the balladry of Prince and the New Power Generation. Kyle Thornton and the Company bring it all home to the Camel on Sunday, March 22. Richmond groove merchants Nic Perea and Murphy’s Kids open. Doors for the all-ages show open at 5 p.m. Admission is $10. thecamel.org.— Chris Bopst
