Biography

Kyle Douglas Veazey has been playing guitar
for over 10 years. After having not one, but two
strokes that left him paralyzed from the neck down
on his right side at the age of only 15, Kyle
taught himself how to play by using a batting glove,
double-sided duct tape, an exacto knife, and a
Fender Triangle pick like that used by the legendary
guitarist Carlos Santana. Kyle plays his own style of
Bop and Post-Bop Jazz like that of Miles Davis,
John Coltrane, and Wes Montgomery. His biggest
influences are Miles Davis, Wes Montgomery, B.B. King,
Stevie Ray Vaughan, and Tom Morello. Kyle's aspirations
to become a professional musician date back to his
childhood when he could be found singing to Elvis
records in his room with the sound billowing out
of his record player. He became serious about guitar
in high school while his father was stationed in
Omaha, NE. As he took lessons, he began to develop
a love for Chicago and Texas Blues and Bop and Post-Bop
Jazz. Kyle has performed at many clubs in the Southeast
including Cafe Coco in Nashville, The Preservation Pub
in Knoxville, and the famous Eddie's Attic in Decatur, GA.
