Kyle Pudenz - Barrage 8

Nashville multi-instrumentalist Kyle Pudenz brings a unique sound and style to each musical project he pursues. Whether in the studio, on stage, or in composition, arranging, and songwriting, Pudenz’s diverse array of experiences and training in both popular and classical styles, as well as the experience of building his own instruments, have enabled him to formulate a musical idiom that is entirely his own. Kyle regularly performs on fiddle, mandolin, guitar, and most notably, his own line of custom-built 7-string electric violins. He holds a bachelor’s degree in Commercial Music from Belmont University, and his professional ventures have taken him from nationally recognized venues such as Dallas Cowboys’ AT&T Stadium and the Grand Ole Opry to legendary Nashville musical centers like Blackbird Studios and RCA Studio B.
Kyle Pudenz is currently touring full-time with Barrage 8, a contemporary multi-genre string ensemble that has toured internationally since 1997. He plays violin, 7-string violin, guitar, mandolin, and sings backing vocals with the octet.

Kyle has been a Harper Guitars artist since 2016, and currently records & tours with a 4-string Rockcastle Electric Mandolin and a Galaxy Series Comet Electric Guitar.
