Two major parts in Daryl Jay Kyle’s life have been music and faith. He grew up in church and has played in the church band since his 15th. Quickly, Daryl was asked to play on several small local events with a band.
According to Daryl, the church is, next to it’s spiritual goal, the best place to develop yourself on a musical, characteristic and faith level. “The perfect church does not exist, and so we are not perfect either. We all make mistakes sometimes, but we’re in this life to learn, grow and enjoy life.”
If you would try to fit Daryl’s genre in a box, you would need a pretty big box. “I always say the genre I sing is Gospel, but I don’t think the Gospel is limited to certain genres”. According to Daryl, Gospel is confused a lot with Black Gospel, but Gospel to me is more about the message, than the genre.
If you really want to fit Daryl in a box, it would be Pop, R&B and Power Ballads. Yet, Daryl is also heavily inspired by Soul, Funk and… Country. And challenges as Dutch songs and Jazz-classics are no problem for this musical jack-of-all-trades!
In the meantime, Daryl can be seen on the bigger christian stages in Holland. Also, he can be booked with an acoustic guitarist for various restaurants, cafés and parties. Next to that, he is also very busy with developing his future plans in writing, recording and arranging vocals.
In 2020 Daryl could be seen on the national tv-show Hit The Road. Watch his audition here! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qFovWnU0GFU
