Funny? If you're a geek, maybe. Irreverent? Often. Original? Always. A retro piano bar style of original and obscure jazz and blues, romantic standards, and utter non sequiturs.

"It Must Have Been the Dopamine"

Once upon a time, as the worn needle of an outdated turntable made its way across the vinyl surface of Frank Zappa's "Hot Rats", a tragically dorky pre- adolescent boy vibrated with an emotion he couldn't describe. Even girls, he soon found, didn't arouse quite the same feelings as "Magical Mystery Tour" and "Dark Side of the Moon". By the time the boy was aware enough of the fairer sex to begin to understand his libido, bands like the Pat Metheny Group and Return to Forever were already drawing his developing hypothalamus into deeper, more profound regions of sensation.

But women are the creation of a greater artist, and the boy soon found that playing the drums won him far more of their attention than writing rudimentary programs on his Radio Shack TRS-80 computer, which had so captured his interest between Dungeons & Dragons and music. The boy became a man, and an entertainer was born.

Kyle now accompanies himself at the piano and tortures women with romantic songs about his wife with a performing style he describes as "like breaking out of jail."
