A deeply-felt guitarist, vocalist, and creative, Joseph Lyle has touched the hearts of Idaho with acoustic brilliance over the past decade. Originally hailing from Whidbey Island, Washington, Lyle spent most of his childhood playing music with his family in Boise, Idaho. His hypnotic fingerstyle talent is inspired by the art of musicians such as Michael Hedges, Sergio Altamura, Tommy Emmanuel, and Andy McKee. His sound also exhibits classical and new age influences, as well as Egyptian folk.
Lyle is a co-founder and original member of Fret Monkey Records, an international guitar collective launched in 2015. Since then, he has spent time touring with band Oceans Are Zeroes and producing three solo albums available to stream everywhere (Surface Tension, A Walk with the Leaves, and Snowflakes).
Lyle currently spends his time writing music, organizing a local music exposition, and performing regularly throughout the greater Boise area.
A Very Lyle Christmas
My sweet kitty, Munchie and I had a very bright idea to hang out in my studio and record some Christmas music. Here are a handful of our favorites. I sincerely hope they warm your heart. Merry Christmas!
