About

Unsound America | Music Reviews is a blog about music I love or feel conflicted about — but it’s music that I want to share with you and write about, nevertheless.

My name is Kyle Porter.  I’m a producer, programmer, recording engineer, videographer, songwriter, singer, and keyboardist.  You can hear my music, watch my videos, and check out my collaborations with friends over at Unsound America.  Read my fiction work over here.

I’m writing these reviews as a hobby; it’s something I enjoy doing on my own time.  Please do not send submissions for review.
