Hey there, my name is Kyle Carmon, I'm a solo blues musician/song writer in Memphis, TN. My music's main influences are Memphis Blues musicians such as Furry Lewis and Frank Stokes, as well as a lot of Hill Country and Delta influences such as Robert Johnson, Fred McDowell, or R.L. Burnside with a slightly more modern sensibility. I'm looking to play all over the Memphis Metro area, and I'm willing to drive much farther if I'm compensated for gas. Contact me if you're looking to book an original, unique, old-school blues artist.

Gig Length: 30 - 240 minutes

I'm a friendly, easy going, performer, if you book me expect an on time arrival, fast and easy setup/soundcheck and no drama.
Additional Booking Notes
I've got my own amplifier, microphone, and various other gear that can accommodate a small to medium sized video, but for larger areas I need a P.A. to plug in to.
I've got a large amount of memorized material. I can play uninterrupted for at least an hour, and up to 3 1/2 to 4 hours with a few short breaks. I have a long list of original material and play a wide variety of covers of performers such as Jackson 5, the Beatles, Furry Lewis, and other popular artists in my own bluesy/folky style.
