From a very young age, Kyle has always had a passion for creating and loves inspiring others through music. He feels it is one of the most powerful ways of connecting with one another. Kyle is one of a select few artists who produces music for his fans. Kyle learns and performs each individual singing part, then adds percussion elements (beatbox, stomps, claps, etc) and mixes it all together to form an R&B masterpiece -- doing all of this as a one-man-band! He also creates what he likes to call "hybrid abysmal music" where he will use an instrument or two in the song (piano, acoustic guitar), but still includes elements of R&B and pop (beatboxing, claps, snaps, stomps, harmonies, etc). For Kyle, he has a subscriber following that is extremely loyal and constantly growing. In 2018, he will be collaborating with several famous musicians and singers to expand his community and dedicated fan base, also known as the Lai-Fattheads.
