Lyle Kilgore – Guitar:

Hailing from the small town of Buchanan, Georgia, Lyle Kilgore’s thirst for music quickly outgrew the city limit signs.  He played in many projects from bluegrass, blues to Alternative bands where he refined his skills.  He took his energetic style to the San Fransisco Bay area and further down to Long Beach where he played in the local watering holes along the way.  Giving the west coast a taste of traditional southern blues and was met with a great reception.  He then settled back into the Atlanta area playing with different bands.  He then attended and graduated from the Atlanta institute of music. Since then he has shared the stage with some of the biggest names in the Atlanta area.  His boisterous, idiosyncratic style of playing is well matched with high energy level music but his love for the blues and singer/songwriters style seeps out in his playing when its time to just sit back and listen to the words of a song. His rootsy feel that blends blues, folk, and rock music is sure to keep your ear turned to the stage to hear whats coming next.
