Gary Kyle and The No Standards Band / Bio

Gary Kyle was raised in Kingwood, TX, just outside of Houston. He grew up the youngest of six children in a very musically charged family. Gary's father, who passed when Gary had just turned a year old, was a country/bluegrass performer for years in honky tonks throughout Texas and Oklahoma.

Gary's life took a dramatic change at the age of 13, when Gary's 19 year old vivacious, free-spirited brother, was diagnosed with Leukemia. He passed just months later. Gary never had a chance to say goodbye. Life took on as whole new meaning for Gary. It shook him into the realization that life is too short and too precious to be taken for granted. Gary then made a vow to follow his heart and cherish each moment to the fullest. This passion for life later became the basis of the title track of his debut CD, aptly entitled "Livin".

When Gary was a senior in high school, his mother gave him his father's guitar.
Making good on a promise to his mother that he would attend college and earn a degree, Gary attended the University of North Texas in Denton where he majored in Marketing and Sociology. Music took precedence over academia, however, but after six years of college (no, he is not a doctor!) Gary earned his degree.

Gary has a relentless passion for performing, and his unorthodox connection with the audience, leaves an indeniable mark on all who see him play. You can always find Gary after the show in the crowd thanking each person for coming out to hear his music.

Gary's debut CD "Livin", produced by Johnny Marshall is a collection of "feel good make you wanna cry, make you wanna dance" down home Texas Country as eclectic and rich in character as the Lonestar state itself.

His sophomore album "Turn this Life Around" has been a great success for Gary. Both singles he released off this album(Late Night Runaround, Turn this Life Around)charted in the top 25 on the Texas Charts.
