LYLE BREWER currently plays guitar in the Ryan Montbleau Band, a well-oiled six-piece touring machine that has been on the road for nearly ten years. Since joining the band full-time in 2010, Brewer has shared stages with legends like Oteil Burbridge (Allman Brothers Band), Bill Kreutzmann (Grateful Dead), and jam-scene veterans such as Assembly of Dust and Max Creek.

In 2011 Lyle released his first EP under the Lyle Brewer Trio entitled Music To My Fears, which includes longtime Boston musicians Dean Casell on bass and Mike Piehl on drums. If nothing else, it's a testament to Brewer's wise-beyond-his-years musicianship that these stalwarts of the local music scene -- guys who have been playing for longer than Lyle has been alive -- don't flinch when asked to back him up on stage or on record. If you love the sound of no-frills, true-blue musicians doing what they were put on this green earth to do, you're sure to dig the trio's Music To My Fears.

Prior to joining Montbleau's band and starting his trio, Brewer spent two and a half years as the lead guitarist with Sarah Borges and the Broken Singles. Brewer and Borges shared more than a musical bond -- the two were married in 2010 and in the summer of 2011 had their first child, Elliot.

Brewer is also a highly-regarded session musician and touring guitarist, having made records and performed with a huge range of artists including Miss Tess, Chris O'Brien, Dennis Brennan, Rachael Price, Tim Gearan, Anita Suhanin and Schwang, Christian McNeil and the Seamonsters, Jake Armerding, Jimmy Ryan, Jesse Dee, Eilen Jewell, Jerry Miller, Ghosts of Jupiter, and Grimis, of which he was a founding member.

Brewer attended the prestigious New England Conservatory in Boston, studying jazz performance. During that time he made a name for himself as one of the youngest and hungriest guitarists on the Boston music scene, playing by his own estimate, 300 shows a year for one stretch of time. He's dug into it all -- John Scofield and Chet Atkins, Duane Allman and Brad Barr -- from the Conservatory to the Dive Bar, to the main stages of some of the country's finest outdoor music festivals, he's been there.
