British born, American-trained composer Kyle J Baker writes music for film, chamber ensembles and school groups. Classical in heritage, but vernacular in vocabulary, his music has earned accolades for its rhythmic intensity and lyrical integrity.
Here are some examples of work I’ve written for concert, jazz and marching ensembles:
“One of the most thoughtful, daring, and lyrically gifted composers in Nashville”
– John Pitcher, music critic, Nashville Scene.
“Kyle’s understanding of the professional demands of the music world as well as his innate creativity make him an effective educator and composer. His passion for music is one that is contagious and refreshing.”
James Barnes, director of Bands, Bythewood High School (Columbia, SC), Brass Caption Head, Music City Drum & Bugle Corps
“Kyle was a valued and dedicated member of Carolina Crown for 3 years. He was an excellent performer and a great leader, and was highly respected by his fellow members, faculty administrators and volunteers. He continues to be part of the Carolina Crown family as an active alumnus.”
Kevin Smith, director, Carolina Crown
