Kyle Kelly-Yahner on SoundBetter

Hi, there. I’m Kyle. I’m a drummer based in Greenpoint, Brooklyn who frequently flies out west to enjoy real street tacos. I’ve played and/or recorded with artists like Matt Pond PA, Xylo, Hazel English, Andrew Saint James, Tino Drima, Chase McBride, J. Hoard, Satellite Mode, DONCAT, Kristeen Young, and others.

I serve the song, no matter what. Whether I’m at a session, or on a gig, that’s the goal – to elevate the music. It’s a damn blast to do just that.

I’ve toured nationally with various artists, ran Ableton live rigs, and produced sampled and live drums from my home studio.

I combine a traditional jazz background with new rock approaches, and throw in whatever else inspires me. The more tools and styles to have at your disposal, the better.

INTERFACE: Apollo x8p
MICS: (2) Beyerdynamic m160s, (2) Sennheiser 421s, (3) SM 57s, AT2020, Shure Beta 52
