"Cabin Fever Rocks Away Winter Blues"

... “Cabin Fever is keeping our scene alive,” Mr. Arguello said, for both old talent and new. Instrumentalist Kyle Horn is a fresh face on the Cabin Fever scene, and he will play his first solo festival show on Saturday, February 21, at Doran’s in Hampton Bays.

Last year, the 24-year-old Westhampton native jammed alongside Craig Whitney at Cowfish in Hampton Bays, he recalled last week, to a wall-to-wall crowd buzzing with a palpable energy. This time around, it’ll be just him and his guitar—and no vocals.

“In a typical band, you’ll have a rhythm section and someone singing the melody, and someone playing guitar,” Mr. Horn explained, who identifies as a percussive fingerstyle guitarist. “I try to incorporate all of that onto the guitar. I use different parts of the guitar to play rhythm and melody, if you let your imagination run free with that idea.” ... - Southampton Press

"Astoria Acoustics: A Night of Unforgettable Music"

The show brings together three acts: Guitarist Kyle Horn, musical duo Poorly Made, and rapper Billy Conahan - the curator of the show. "I wanted a show that brought together some of Astoria's greatest acts - something with just simple great music and great performers. I wanted to do a acoustic show from the beginning, and Q.E.D is an amazing venue - I knew the show would be perfect there." ...

... Kyle Horn is different from any guitarist we've ever seen - he flawlessly blurs the lines between strumming and percussion, creating rhythms that play into his music effortlessly." ... - Give Me Astoria

Kyle Horn is a New York City-based fingerstyle guitarist who incorporates strong melodic riffs with percussive techniques that together form a very full and unique sound. He transforms his acoustic guitar into a multidimensional instrument that allows him to add sonically complex layers into his compositions that result in an aurally and visually captivating performance. Kyle has studied with some the world’s most renowned fingerstyle guitarists including Andy McKee, Don Ross, Thomas Leeb, Mike Dawes and Alex Kabasser. He has also opened shows for Mike and Thomas as well as Craig D’Andrea and Antoine Dufour. In 2014, he was recognized as the only runner-up from the United States in the acoustic category of Lee Ritenour’s Six String Theory Competition for his two original compositions “Concrete Shuffle” and “Locomotive”.
