Kyle “kaywhy” Young, was born on June 12, 1986 in Hartford, Connecticut. At age 6, Kyle moved to Springfield, Massachusetts with his parents where he continued to grow up and round himself into an avid lover of arts and entertainment. In his early years, he acted in school plays, while also enjoying art classes, gym, and even joining his dad after school at work.
Kyle was inspired to create his own unique brand of music ever since a young age. He was first drawn in by his grandfather’s piano in his living room, then creating his own beats and music with a Casio keyboard. Kyle truly began taking his talents seriously when he began to write his freshman year of high school, and making his first recording in the summer of 2004 with Dan “Scatterbox” Sheils, who introduced Kyle to the idea of rapping, and thus engrossing him in the world of hip hop.
Attending film school in Los Angeles, Kyle can be found creating compositions of all sorts. Being a member of music groups, Collabo and Soggy Rotten, Kyle is always looking to develop and perform new music.
“Hip hop is dying,” Kyle insists, “it’s on life support.” For this reason, he continues to produce and record many beats, tracks, and raps, also hoping to reach many more audiences across the country.
Kyle is currently located in Hartford at Young! Studios working on the “Diamond Ruff” Project alongside his father, Joe Young. Kyle will be promoting the his current “Are You Sleeping” music video, as well as helping produce the “Diamond Ruff” feature film.
