Kyle (VoxMan) Shepard

Beatboxing

VoxMan Kyle began creating sound effects with his voice at a very young age while playing with toys. You know the drill: elaborate punch and kick sounds, machine guns and explosions, flips and splooshes and the like. Then his parents got him a drumset and he learned to combine his passion for sound effects with his practice of rhythm. The result: one very unconventional and funky musician. Kyle is now a fusion beatboxer/vocal-scrambler honing techniques from sources as eclectic as ethnic choirs, electronic dance music, global percussion and cartoon voices. Kyle graduated from the University of British Columbia's film department, specializing in audio design. Kyle teaches beatboxing and vocal-play around British Columbia, and performs for all different manner of folks with his dad in the notorious duo "The Big Mess".
