Kyle Ledson

A Musician's Life..

Ever since he picked up a fiddle at the age of three years old, Kyle Ledson has immersed himself in music. Taking influences of both the traditional bluegrass world & the jam band scene, Kyle has nurtured his own flavor of acoustical string music that we call “JAMGRASS.”

Kyle’s first album release, “Crooked Mandolin,” saw him collaborating with members of Hot Buttered Rum, the T Sisters, and the incredibly talented, flat picker of the year, Molly Tuttle when Kyle was just a 14 year old 8th grader. After experiencing life in the recording studio and all the inspiration that came with that project, Kyle has been writing, playing, performing & growing with a fiery momentum. The culmination of such, Kyle released his sophomore album, “Left It All Behind” in 2021, which features some amazing special guests including Ben Kaufmann of Yonder Mountain, Dan Lebowitz, Ezra Lipp, & Steve Adams from ALO, and others.

Kyle’s solo live experience features fast picking guitar with hard driving bluegrass, catchy original melodies, thought-provoking lyrics, and a unique perspective on cover tunes. In 2021-2022, Kyle Ledson & Friends projects took on the life of their own with two new bands- An acoustic jamgrass band, Broken Compass Bluegrass based in Grass Valley and an electric psychedelic rock jamband, Cosmic Frog, out of Chico, CA.

As a music artist, Kyle is most inspired when performing live and unscripted. He is rapidly leaving his mark on the string band scene. Kyle is grateful for his fans and all their kind support and love!
