When asked how he developed his affection for Jazz, Kyle told the Telegraph UK, “My parents are big music fans. They both love jazz. The first concert I can remember being taken to was Count Basie's Big Band in 1976. The family was always listening to big band jazz like Basie, Duke Ellington and Stan Kenton. I grew up in California and we were very close to the Monterey Jazz Festival. My father has been going since it started in 1958 and it's like an annual family day out for us. He has been on the board for the past decade. I was lucky enough to see live some of titans of jazz: Stan Getz, Ella Fitzgerald, Sarah Vaughan, Gil Evans and Buddy Rich among them."

There was a strong piano influence in his family but Kyle fell in love with another instrument, "I did start by having piano lessons when I was about six or so and played for a few years. I was about 12 when I began playing a bit of guitar and then took up the double bass when I was 14. I pretty much taught myself at first using my knowledge of guitar. I loved the whole idea of being part of the rhythm of a band. School friends were always keen to have a bass player in their bands."

He has been able to reach to the level he is now through hard working and determination. He is expected to continue to do even better in the future.
