Since setting out as a singer and songwriter, Kyle English has
been able to hone his craft; ﬁnding a voice and style that, upon hearing it, is
easily identiﬁed as his own. He is constantly performing and writing and his
songs are described as heartfelt and catchy.
For Kyle, the songs come first regardless of current
trends. His sound is reminiscent of the next age of classic rock; music that is
guitar driven and lyric based, following in the footsteps of 90s artists from when he was coming of age. Kyle’s lead single “Sophia”, from the Indian Summer EP,
is steeped in the sound of The Gin Blossoms; this offers a sound that is
nostalgic, not an imitation.
On Kyle’s full length follow up album, tracks like
“One Night Romeo” display his strength as a singer and songwriter, featuring
simply vocal and guitar. “What it’s Like” and “Don’t Fade Away” are full arrangements akin to that of Bruce Springsteen’s E Street Band. In the era of chasing the next viral trend, Kyle
believes in remaining true to himself and his music.
Kyle is currently in the studio working on new material for
his next release.
After having spent a number of years
playing locally in Cincinnati, and writing his own material, Kyle independently
released the Indian Summer EP and Innovatory Live EP. These releases and the
subsequent videos offered a number of other professional opportunities. His
single, "Sophia" has been placed in rotation on ClassX Radio (88.9
Cincinnati and online at classxradio.com). The strength of this single
also led to a featured review in NKY Live Magazine, which calls his release,
"fresh...with a red hot melody". Other songs on the album gain acclaim
for their "sophisticated lyric base" and "folk guitar
flare". Kyle's 14 song album “12:33” expanded on the style that fans were
familiar with, yet reflected a growth in both writing and production. Many of
these tracks are in heavy rotation on EGH Radio, out of England.
Past Gigs and Appearances Highlights:
A note from Kyle: I'm excited to let everyone know that Miles Ahead, a biopic about the later years in Miles Davis' career has been released. The film stars Don Cheadle and Ewan McGregor. I worked as an extra in the film and my scene made the final cut.
