Kyle Douglas' sound and vision
could be summed up as 'Jimi Hendrix meets Johnny Cash somewhere
deep, deep in the jungle.'
Like many guitarists, it was Hendrix who inspired
Kyle to pick up a guitar for the first time at age 11. Born
in Illinois and growing up in Northwest Indiana, Kyle was
close enough to the city of Chicago to experience its rich,
musical heritage. Although experimenting with different
genres throughout the years along with developing his own,
the impact of the blues never left him.
Fast forward to late 2013 and Kyle had completely
found his style with something he called 'funk folk.' The
songs incorporate the guitar stylings of folk, funk, blues,
and soul, while the lyrics take on a much more poetic approach,
more of the folky singer-songwriter stylings.
"All I'm trying to do with my songs is tell the world my story. Tell them the
good parts with my music, tell them the bad parts with my lyrics, and
between the two, the lessons I have learned in this life.
But if I can transcend the listener to the listening room that is my soul, I
will feel like I have succeeded in giving all of myself to my music, and
hopefully, my music does something for people." Kyle continues to spread his music and make a name for himself!
