Kyle started playing bass at the age of 13.  One of the first virtuoso’s he started following was Victor Wooten.  Listening to his early session work and also his first Flecktone album changed his playing style and perspective on what the bass could be, for life.  Victor and Kyle have since become friends over the years and have worked together at Victor’s “Wooten Woods” Bass Camps. 


Kyle's band Rude Squad is signed to Citrus Records and he is endorsed by Warwick Basses, EMG Pickups, Mesa Boogie Cabinets, and Dean Markley Strings

Kyle Sokol is a native Floridian, born and raised in Clearwater/St. Petersburg, FL.  Kyle is mostly known for his style of bass playing that mostly consists of fast technical bass lines along with upright and fretless work.  Currently, Kyle plays in DISAREYEN (Technical Metal/Death Metal) and Mercy McCoy (Folk-Americana Upright Bass).  Kyle also is a member of several other original musical projects to include Blackkout (Tampa Bay Thrash Metal Legends), Messiaxx (Power Metal from Tampa Bay), and Rude Squad (Ska/Punk band from Saint Petersburg, FL since 1997).
