King [has a] "penchant for writing great melodies... the listener can’t help but whistle ’em long after the disc stops spinning." --


Lyle King has been performing in the Burlington music scene for several years; however, he truly emerged in 2001 when he won the Advance Music Acoustic Guitar Search. King followed that up with his CD debut, Left Standing, in 2002 which Amy Robson of describes as "a must have for any fan of acoustic rock and any fan of pure and passionate music.” In the spring of 2004 King released the stripped-down acoustic EP, 5 A.M., which offers listeners an opportunity to experience Lyle as he often performs live; "just a singer, a six-string and a life laid bare in lyrics" (Pamela Polston - Seven Days VT).

After several years of playing around Vermont at venues like Higher Ground and Radio Bean, and at events like the Vermont Festival for the Arts and First Night Burlington, King has been taking a hiatus from regular performing but has still made occasional appearances at venues as far south as North Carolina. Songwriting remains a passion and King has amassed a large catalog of new music that he's eager to share when the time is right.
