“'Holy Ghost' may not have gloss or frills, but it nevertheless packs more of a punch than all the slick production in the world. [Holy Ghost] boasts stunningly detailed imagery... [while being] simultaneously heartbreaking and breathtaking. 'Live at the Tin Angel' is a mature and resonant debut from an artist with obvious potential.”
- Melanie Love

Earning rave reviews from fans and critics alike, Kyle Justin has been steadily making his mark on the Philadelphia region. Quickly garnering commercial radio airplay nationwide, his engaging music and style have made him a staple in acoustic rooms and popular venues in the Philly area and beyond. The Philadelphia music scene is saying Kyle's interesting guitar voicings, soulful melodies, and thoughtful lyrics come from a "true poet" with "engaging music."

Raised in a blue-collar family in a bustling North Jersey town, Kyle’s path did not lead him to music until the impressionable age of fifteen. His love for music led him to attend the University of the Arts in Philadelphia, where he spent his time studying jazz guitar and music composition.

Kyle’s inspiration and influences are varied – from Motown, The Beatles, Jimi Hendrix, to many of today’s artists. As a singer/songwriter he uses both his influences and personal experiences to compose songs that merge the styles of pop and soul. Weaving imagery with emotion, his music is bound to captivate.
