Kyle Brian Abbott, born December 20, 1995 in Seaford, Virginia was born to a family of musicians with drumsticks in his hand and a hole in his heart-to be filled by the love and adoration of fans to come with age. Acquiring his first drum set at the age of 2, after showing an aptitude for drumming, he began playing nearly everyday, and by the age 17 was the house drummer for Donk’s Theater in Mathews, Virginia, and held the beat for multiple bands like The Dirty Exceptions, PleaseSayYes!, Cooper’s Landing, and others. Drumming isn’t Kyle’s only talent, however, as he began singing around the age of 8, playing guitar around the age of 10, and writing original music which helped him develop a thorough understanding of song structures, melodies, and composition.
Introduced to music production with his early acoustic pop group Please Say Yes!, he began acquiring recording equipment and learning more about engineering, mixing, and production as he started recording not only his own music, but other’s as well. During his sophomore year of high school Kyle began working at a local Ben & Jerry’s in Yorktown, Virginia where he met Daniel, and a couple months later The Pleasure was willed into existence.
It wasn’t long before The Pleasure became the top priority for Kyle and discussion of uprooting the entire band to Los Angeles began. In September 2016, Kyle and his newlywed wife , Ashleigh, packed their suitcases and joined Alexander on a road trip across the country to bring The Pleasure new life. After settling in, the work soon began to finish what was the third edition of The Pleasure …is all mine.
Kyle’s style is an eclectic mix of 90’s grunge, 80’s metal, modern pop, and classic rock all twisted together into what would seem like a mess. However, Kyle’s broad scope of musical taste means that the creativity never stops flowing. Once you hear his playing, you’ll forever recognize the bright and energetic style of Kyle Brian Abbott.
