The Remains started January 1 of 2012 after members of the Kevin Seale Band hooked up with Boone Cook after Kevin made the decision to retire from the road. After a lot of discussion and debate the band decided to take on the name The Remains as they felt it truly described the situation.
The addition of Boone Cook brings to the table an accomplished songwriter and performer to front the road seasoned foursome from KSB. Boone played bass for the band 80 Proof for many years where he toured and played with some of the best artist on the Texas and national scene. His songwriting proved popular as a song Boone penned hit #12 on the Texas Music charts. The song “Maybe” was cut by 80 Proof and became extremely popular on Texas radio. During his days with them he had the opportunity to play with Wes Manley where at that point they formed a solid friendship.
The former members of the Kevin Seale Band bring in the work ethic and road savey needed to keep the dream alive. They performed hard driving music behind Kevin weekend after weekend and honed their skill in from of thousands of people over many years. Kevin’s last album would be their last time to record together as KSB and their musicianship helped that album be successful on Texas radio.

In 2003, in a warehouse on the outskirts of Ft. Worth, TX, the Kyle Bennett Band was born. People gathered every night to hear the original music and smooth voice of Kyle Bennett. Having been surrounded by music his entire life (both parents were music directors and had released Christian gospel albums), it’s no surprise that Kyle Bennett followed suit from an early age. By April of 2005, they cut their first album now known as “The Red Album”. With some southern style country combined with some great classic rock the Kyle Bennett Band broke into the Red Dirt Music scene and onto the Texas Regional Radio Charts. “Donnelly Drive” was the first track to make it into the Top 10 on the Texas Regional Radio Charts. Several of the songs are still quite popular, like “Adios”, “Later On” and “What’s it Like”.
In April of 2009, they released their second album “Grey Sunrise”. This album really held the sound of a more matured band and once again, added momentum to their growing fan base. “Grey Sunrise” released two songs that made the Top 10 on the Texas Regional Radio Charts. Those titles included “Jimmy & Josie” and “Should’ve Listened”. Other songs on the album reflect the talent of Bennett’s writing style and soulful, southern voice like “When the Lights Go Down” and “Time To Switch To Whiskey”.
About a year after the release of their sophomore album, the band made the hard decision to split ways. Kyle decided to go forth with his singer/songwriter career. He gathered new musicians from all over Texas. Their talents and hard work have added a lot to the current Kyle Bennett Band sound. The complete line-up change has evoked a new wave of music and creativity.
The unmistakably clear voice and smooth inflection that are core to Kyle Bennett’s sound were evident on his new single “Here In This Town” that reached #8 on the Texas Music Charts, #4 on the Tex Net 50, and #10 on the Texas Regional Radio Report. Singles “Track Won” and “Pills” were also created during this time and are making headway in the Texas region.
The release of “Here in This Town” delivered a new style packed with ambition and emotion that made listeners take notice. The signature vocals and guitar remain core to their sound along with a more refined and solidified delivery ranging from the rockin’ energy of live shows to polished ballads. The band definitely hybrids Country and Rock but not in the traditional Southern Rock way; It can be edgy but not screeching and there is a sound to Bennett’s voice and a style to the band that sets them apart from the rest.
On the surface it seems easy to stereotype their sound as Texas Country, but it goes deeper than that. It’s a mixture of life lessons and a determined professionalism. Take a few hard knocks, a couple of relationships gone wrong, mix in some good times and you have the heart and soul that delivers the sound of the Kyle Bennett Band.
