Kyle Vanes On World Cafe

Kyle Vanes, of the band The Dales, says his song "Still the Love" was inspired by finding, and losing, the love of his life, who died of breast cancer in 2015.
We get a lot of music in the mail here at World Cafe and sometimes a song and a story hits me right in the gut. Kyle Vanes, of the band The Dales, wrote to tell us the story behind "Still the Love," a song inspired by finding, and losing, the love of his life Heather Marie Allman. She had stage 4 breast cancer when they met. Kyle and Heather were friends for a while before they fell in love and stayed together until she died in January of 2015.
