The Kyle Killgore Band
GENRE OF MUSIC
Red Dirt Country Music
Kyle Killgore has had music around him his whole life. His father, David Killgore, has been a professional musician since he was 12 years old. Music, and music equipment were always around the house. However, growing up, Kyle focused mainly on sports. He was a hockey player and a golfer throughout high school. In addition to sports, he was a writer. He wrote a lot of poetry. When Kyle was 16 he began to learn how to play the guitar. He was mostly self taught, with a few lessons from David Holland. Kyle began really working on music when he was in college. He would sit in his dorm learning cover songs and began writing his own. Once out of college, Kyle really focused on working on music, writing as many songs as he could think of, and playing as often as he could. Kyle has had the opportunity to play with some big-name talents, including Eric Paslay, Parmalee, and Aaron Watson. Kyle recorded his first EP, Jackson, in 2018, that was released in October of that year.
