Kyle Wolverton – Soul Groove

Kyle was born in Seattle, Washington to Lee and Cherry Wolverton, an extremely musical family. Kyle’s Father, Lee as well as Kyle’s younger brother Joel, are also sax players. With Mom acting as the family manager and booking agent, the “Wolverton Family Sax Trio” was a very hot ticket throughout the greater Northwest. Much of their repertoire consisted of traditional gospel selections.

Growing up in the cozy, damp, environment of Seattle, Kyle had many hours to listen, learn, and play while watching the rain fall. With his early musical taste firmly rooted in gospel, Kyle found himself drawn toward influences such as Grover Washington Jr., Maceo Parker and David Sanborn. His love of fusion jazz combined with R&B influences such as Marvin Gaye, Luther Vandross, and Keith Sweat soon melded together to create a very unique sound.

Kyle studied music at Pacific Union College. While in school, Kyle founded the Smooth Jazz -Fusion band “Similar Differences”, who featured members of Taj Mahal. Similar Differences played throughout the Napa Valley and San Francisco Area. After college, Kyle traveled throughout the South Pacific playing with many native acts which broadened his musical horizons even further. Upon returning to the states, Kyle joined forces with Northern California’s premier blues band, “Marshall Law”.

In 2001, Kyle relocated to Los Angeles and has since performed with a countless list of fantastic recording artists of all styles. It is with much excitement and anticipation that Kyle Wolverton‘s debut solo project, Soul Groove is being released on CDBaby.
