Chris Kyle is a guitarist as well as a songwriter, producer, engineer, session / live player and a multi instrumentalist.
After many years of playing in projects and bands either being a founding member of or as a side musician (Woof Woof, Lip Talk, Cautious Clay, Cosmicide) Chris's debut album as an artist, "Falling in Circles'' was self released in 2020. For fans of Kurt Vile, Cass McCombs and George Harrison, the album might find a home with its melodic and at times compositionally adventurous style, guitars a little forward in the arrangements.
Stardust EP, released July 26th 2022 was written, played, recorded and produced by Chris Kyle in upstate NY when the world had lots of free time.
Stardust has a playful sound mixing psychedelia and melodicism, fuzzy phased out guitar sounds weren't shied away from.
Since 2019 Chris has kept a busy touring schedule as guitarist for Cautious Clay (check out "Stolen Moments" - guitars by Chris Kyle)

He was recently a session musician on Danger Mouse and Black Thought’s 2022 release ‘Cheat Codes,’ amongst a slew of releases as a mainstay session guitarist at Old Soul Studios in Catskill, NY.
Stay tuned for another Tongues Unknown album in the works.
