Meet Kyle LaLone of Kyle LaLone Music in Silverlake

Today we’d like to introduce you to Kyle LaLone.

Kyle, please share your story with us. How did you get to where you are today?
I was always fascinated and drawn to music since I was a very young. I started taking guitar lessons when I was 9 years old, started my own band when I was 12, and participated in all the music programs I could at my high school. After high school I attended Berklee College of Music on scholarship and have been a working musician since then. I have been fortunate to perform and record with a bunch of very talented folks in many different genres. Currently, I play with my own trio that performs an instrumental mix of rock, blues, country, and soul music. Along with that I play guitar with several other Los Angeles based artists, do one-off freelance gigs, and teach lesson for a few different companies.

Great, so let’s dig a little deeper into the story – has it been an easy path overall and if not, what were the challenges you’ve had to overcome?
I would compare being a working musician to driving on a very long, windy road up a mountain. It is unlike many other careers in that there is not really a set path, the schedule varies a great deal, and the experience is different for almost everyone. There are times when I am extremely busy and am barely able to keep up with the amount of music I need to have prepared and other times when its slow and I’m chomping at the bit for perform. Along with that the music business has gone through a serious overhaul in the last 10 years due to streaming services such as Spotify. That being said, I feel very lucky that I get to do what I love for a living and can’t imagine doing anything else.

Alright – so let’s talk business. Tell us about Kyle LaLone Music – what should we know?
I am a professional guitarist, songwriter, and music educator. I am well versed and enjoy playing a number of styles such as rock, pop, blues, soul, and country. I have played 100s of shows, played on many recording sessions, and taught students of all ages and levels of ability. I would say my work ethic, professionalism, and the passion I bring to my work is what sets me apart from other working guitarists.

Is there a characteristic or quality that you feel is essential to success?
The Ps:

Persistence, preparedness, and patience.
