Doyle Dykes

Influenced primarily by Chet Atkins and Merle Travis, as well as bluegrass-style banjo, guitarist Doyle Dykes began performing around Florida with his gospel-group family when he was only a teenager; he was soon touring with the Crusaders and J.D. Sumner's Stamps. Dykes temporarily quit music to return home to Jacksonville, marry his high school sweetheart, and pursue what he felt were legitimate, non-musical jobs. Unhappy, he returned to the guitar and, through a friend in Nashville, secured a job in the backing band of country singer and Hee Haw star Grandpa Jones. However, after three years, he quit music again to become a pastor, although he made use of his musical skills by arranging traditional hymns for solo guitar. But Dykes simply was not happy without making music his vocation, and he made a second return as a solo instrumentalist. He recorded two albums of spiritual music for Step One, titled Fingerstyle Guitar (1996) and H.E.A.T. (1997), respectively, and then scored a deal with Windham Hill, for whom he debuted with 1998's Gitarre 2000. ~ Steve Huey, Rovi

This guy has a great touch.
Doyle is the epitome of a great person and friend. With my dad (Kirk Sand) being a luthier building guitars for Doyle I have gotten to know Doyle very well and he has always been an amazing friend and is part of my family. He and my dad have now come out with a new "Kirk Sand, Doyle Dykes Guild acoustic electric" guitar that is beautiful and you all should go check it out.
Doyle is the tops in his field. I have known Doyle all of my life as well as his family. His dad Bubba and my dad Tiny had a Quartet together and we sat and churned homemade ice cream with his brother Aubrey who is a awesome key board player. Doyle's entire family is a blessing to all who come in contact with them. He has many CD's out at Doyle Dykes.com Love you Doyle
I have known doyle for many years now and am still in aw of his writing and arranging abilities. Not only is he an incredible player but the coolest person I know. Behind him is rita and she is just as cool as he is. Great family. Doyle is truly gifted and god smiles upon him and his family everyday.
We love Doyle's music! And love that Taylor guitar he plays!!

Isn't Doyle Dykes also a representati v e for Taylor guitars?
Doyle Dykes is fabulous, I wish had more CD's and DVD's out and that I can get to hear him in person someday. I just heard Tommy Emmanuel last weekend in New Brunswick, NJ. I guess I'll have to travel to KY to hear both of them !

SINCE DISCOVERING THEIR SENSATIONAL TALENT AND GIFTED INSTRUMENTAL I S T I C STYLE I HAVE BEEN MORE THAN A FAN, BUT AN ADMIRER AND A RESPECTER OF THE LEVEL THEY HAVE TAKEN THEIR RESPECTIVE ART FORMS. CHEERS TO THEIR LONGEVITY I WILL CONTINUE TO CHEER THEM ON!

Caleb his son and his daughter Haley (who plays mandolin and sings)are both quite talented. Caleb is a flat picker. I've been a fan of Doyle and Tommy Emmanuel for a long time and consider them to be the best of the best guitarists in the world...

Wow, awesome to run across a "brother" while just enjoying God's gift of Music
I have engineered sound (live concert) for Doyle when he was in the Orlando area. He is a true joy to work with! He knows what he wants and know how to get it, and without being demanding. He truly has a musical gift from God.

I met Doyle back in the late 70's when he had left Grandpa Jones and started his ministry of playing his guitar in churches! He is an amazing guitar player, and much more than that he is an awesome person who loves God. We met again in 1978 when I had taken a retail job and was living in Dayton Tn. Doyle came an played at our church and he and his wife stayed the night with us with their baby! He needed some tires on his van and i bought them! What an investement and where those tires took him!
I met him and his Dad at Duval Music in Jacksonville and they played an impromptu set together. Awesome to hear!!
benrobi
An awesome guitarist!

Doyle is truly an amazing artist and a humble person to meet in person. Doyle played at our church last weekend and we were blessed to hear/meet him in person. Peace be with you Doyle as you bless others with your gifts.

Doyle's incredible talent is exceeded only by his person. You not only love the music but you just can't help but like him. Give me a Doyle Dykes CD, a good book, and a cup of coffee and I've got a perfect day. Give me a Doyle Dykes concert and I've got the perfect evening. Thanks Doyle.
A few years ago I saw him at NAMM. He was performing in a food court of all places. Needless to say, anyone who was within ear range of him, stopped what they were doing and watched. I never saw anyone grab a crowd like that. Great performer and human being.

Amazing does not even begin to describe the playing of Doyle Dykes. It is unbelievable how much sound he is able to produce from just one instrument.
Heard Doyle in concert last night. His talent is amazing and he truly is a master artist. His daughter Haley,who was touring with him, plays the mandolin and has loads of vocal talent as well. Doyle is a great performer and when you have the opportunity to hear him in person; you'll not be disappointed . His concerts are full of great music and interesting stories. His lastest album is "Bridging the Gap"...check out his website.
I like Shadows Of The Heart, it is very soothing and sweet.
