About the Artist: 

Kyle LaMonica is an acoustic rock singer songwriter who grew up just west of the beaches of south Walton in Niceville, FL. Since 2002 while majoring in music at Florida State University in Tallahassee, Kyle has been performing as a solo musician throughout the region and especially the local area around Destin, FL. Kyle’s music has a feel similar to popular rock bands such as Dave Matthews Band, John Mayer, Guster and David Gray. You can always expect Kyle's music to showcase a major emphasis on his vocal melodies and dynamic acoustic guitar playing. Kyle has released two albums (Matter of Time-2003 and Egoliath-2005) as a member of Free Monica, a band that he co-founded in 2003 with his friend and fellow musician, Ben Friedman. Free Monica  continues to perform locally in the Destin and Santa Rosa Beach area each year. Kyle was nominated in 2011 and 2012 for the 30A Hotspot Awards “Hottest Local Musicians/Bands” category.  He has also been nominated for the Beachcomber Music Awards in 2012 as Musician of the Year and in 2013 for the Best Solo Artist.  This marks the seventh year that Kyle has performed at the 30A Songwriters Festival.
