Black Oxygen is an alternative rock/pop band formed by David Lyle based in Los Angeles, CA. The band has released two Albums "Beating Time" and "The American Dream".

Formation[edit]

Formed in Kansas City by David Lyle now based in Los Angeles, Black Oxygen’s constant success and growth comes from a combination of hard work, musical talent, and drive. This is achieved by frontman David Lyle (Singer/Songwriter/Lead Guitarist), along with his brother, Nick Lyle (Drums/Songwriter/Keyboards/Programming/Additional Vocals).

2010 - Black Oxygen caught the attention of music industry specialists in Atlanta after winning 1st place in Battle of the Bands/Club Wars in the midwest and David Lyle winning Banzai's Outstanding Guitarist. Shortly afterwards, David was invited by record industry professionals to Los Angeles to experience the process of actor/musician Jamie Foxx's album being produced and recorded, where he was introduced to many more industry professionals and music producers.

Fall 2011 Black Oxygen was invited to perform the National Anthem at Arrowhead Stadium in Kansas City, opening the game to a huge crowd for NFL Football rival teams Kansas City Chiefs & Oakland Raiders. During that same year Black Oxygen was also spotted by former Strange Music artist Kutt Calhoun, and together they released a collaborative track, “Pressure.”

Early 2012 Black Oxygen released their debut album “The American Dream.” The first two singles, “Take It to the Limit,” and “The American Dream” reached #59 and #48, respectively, on active rock radio charts. “Take It to the Limit” was also used by ESPN during broadcast and “The American Dream” made it to #12 on the Billboard Hot Single Sales chart. All the music videos for "The American Dream" album helped launch Black Oxygen.

In 2013 Black Oxygen was constantly on the road touring across the country.

During 2014 they released their sophomore album, “Beating Time" on their own independent label, Dreamstreet Records. The lead single, “Livin' the Life” went on to reach #14 on active rock radio charts. The corresponding video on YouTube has earned over one million views. The track was also used by the MLS for Sporting Kansas City, as well later used by the NFL Network in 2017 during the Kansas City Chiefs vs. Pittsburgh Steelers Divisional Playoff game. That same year they joined with rapper, Irv Da Phenom, and released a single titled “Madman,” which premiered along with its music video on HipHopDX.

2015 - Black Oxygen completed their music videos for their album "Beating Time". They have toured over 200 shows in the US, one of the highlights being Rockfest in Kansas City, a one day music festival of over 55,000 people. Black Oxygen's music videos have been played on MTV and several other top media outlets.

2016 - Black Oxygen released a single and music video for "Whole Thang" featuring rappers, Kstylis and Kutt Calhoun, that was well received by the public.

2017 - David & Nick Lyle attended the Grammy Awards Ceremony in Los Angeles, becoming a recognized name in the music industry. Early 2017 has seen Black Oxygen wrapping up three separate transitional studio singles, to be releasing later in 2017. Two of the three singles will have music videos produced. Their third studio album is in the works, produced by Brett Hestla (Dark New Day, Framing Hanley’s “Lollipop,” former Creed touring bassist).
