Joseph Lyle is a modern acoustic fingerstyle guitarist, singer/songwriter, and the lead singer for Glenmerle. Based out of the beautiful city of Boise, ID he uses an acoustic guitar as his canvas and believes in the importance of placing art before music. Joseph often gets described as a minimalist and a purist, however, he loves experimenting using loop stations in order to expand his compositions into a more “orchestral” sound.

August 2014 marks the release of Joseph’s first solo album “a walk with the leaves” and he is currently preparing to record his first singer/songwriter album, and another full length album with his band, Glenmerle in early 2016. Joseph’s influences are broad in genre, but often fall back to artists such as Michael Hedges, Sergio Altamura, and Jónsi, to name just a few.

Joseph recently signed to the prestigious FretMonkey Records and plans on spending the latter portion of 2016 touring his album across the states and living out his passion of sharing music with the world.
