Hello.

My name is Kyle M. Terrizzi.

The M stands for danger.

I'm a San Francisco Bay Area songwriter who, until recently, wrote and performed under the moniker, The Plastic Arts – a term which means noting to me.

The Plastic Arts (2009 - 2013)

After a four-year hiatus from music – time I spent in a fog of depression and beer – I returned to writing, and released two EPs in the span of seven months: Praise Box (July 2009) and Raleigh's Own (February 2010).

It was the writing and recording of Academy Clonez (November 2011), however, that cemented a return to music for me, personally.

Academy Clonez was my first full-length release under The Plastic Arts moniker, and I still consider it my first definitive artistic and musical statement as a songwriter.

Dear Patron

At the start of 2014, I dropped The Plastic Arts moniker and began writing and performing as myself.

My latest record, Dear Patron, Vol. 1 (February 2014), is the first in what will be an ever-expanding series of patron-funded albums, and is comprised of seven brand-new songs, plus four outtakes from the recordings that would eventually become Academy Clonez.

Recently, I've shifted all of my focus onto writing and releasing new music continuously.

I perform regularly in the San Francisco Bay Area and beyond, and have shared the stage with indie-heavyweights like The Lighthouse and the Whaler, Tennis, Matt Pond PA, and Poor Moon – which I hope impresses you.
