33-year-old musical artist Jon King chose the name King Kyote because he was inspired by coyotes. After reading a lot about them, he was fascinated by coyotes and their resilience to last even in harsh conditions in the wild, similar to the deep forests of Maine.
The Maine native was born in 1988 in York, Portland to an environment surrounded by dozens of guitars. King developed his love for music and reinforced it by taking music lessons while in college. He was heavily inspired by music legends like Howlin’ Wolf, The Rolling Stones and Bob Marley, who laid the foundation stone for rock and other musical genres.
He would also visit Bull Moose Music and buy CDs of Maine staples like Rustic Overtones of Portland and Jeremiah Freed.
Over the years, King has performed at many high profile venues and local Maine festivals, while performing many popular acts such as Ghost of Paul Revere, Rustic Overtones and The Mallet Brothers Band.
