Kyle Micho (he/him/his)
Kyle Micho is a singer-songwriter from Syracuse, New York, although his exact origins are widely disputed. Some say he came in a dream. Others swear it was a quick puff of smoke on the side of a misty gray mountain—so quick you’d miss it if you weren’t looking.
He draws influence from writers like Bob Dylan, John Lennon, Kurt Cobain, Paul McCartney, Elliott Smith, and even Jack Kerouac.
Some claim they’ve seen him performing/recording his music in Los Angeles, Syracuse, Nashville, New York City, and London. Some just sigh and say he’s trying to put together too many puzzles at once. Everyone has a story about Kyle Micho, and none of them are true. He may not even be real. It’s hard to tell.
