Lyle Watt

Obsessed with music from a very early age. Lyle got his first guitar when he was 3, and has played ever since. Self taught and influenced by his parents’ taste in music, his biggest influences include David Gilmour, Joe Satriani, Stevie Ray Vaughan and Rory Gallagher.

In 2008, at the age of 15, he was the runner up in the first Guitar Idol competition, at which point he started to build his fan base, thanks to exposure from the competition as well as through his YouTube channel. A versatile musician, he has since gone on to work as a session player for various projects, including recording and touring with the folk outfit Blue Rose Code, as well as doing demos for various companies including Seymour Duncan pickups. He has also recorded and released two solo instrumental EPs, and is currently working on his debut album..
