Kyle Lionhart has honed his craft and built an extremely loyal fanbase by busking on the streets and beaches of his hometown Byron Bay. Musically, Kyle’s sound has raised comparisons to the likes of Ben Harper and Matt Corby. His honest and poetic songwriting explores relationships of love, death, friendships and the often harsh realities around them.
In February 2015, Kyle self-released his debut EP Keep In Mind. At a time when even major labels were struggling to sell CDs, Kyle sold out more than 10,000 copies. His music and reputation soon spread around the world thanks to the enthusiastic reviews of impressed tourists, and it wasn’t long before record labels began to notice the young busker, who was drawing crowds in the hundreds on the main street of Byron Bay.
Kyle signed to Ivy League Records in 2016 and a year later released his second EP
entitled Eleven & Two. The EP generated over 10 million streams and lead to a sold out national Australian tour, a European tour with Xavier Rudd and a debut London headline show that sold out within a week of going on sale.
Following EPs Keep In Mind and Eleven & Two, Kyle released his acclaimed 2019 debut album Too Young, featuring streaming hits Sorry I’m Gone (feat. Emily Reid, Holding On and So Close. 2020 revealed standalone singles Beautiful Life, Dream It Right and a stunning cover of the Cranberries’ classic, Dreams.
In May this year, Kyle released the single Shelter, his first new music in nearly 2 years, with extensive accompanying tour dates taking him right across the country.
Kyle has amassed more than 60 million streams to date and has enjoyed sold out headline shows across Australia, also playing festivals such as Splendour In The Grass and Bluesfest and opening for Xavier Rudd, Foy Vance, and Niall Horan.”
