Gyles Hemstock plays a variety of genres including but not limited to progressive rock, latin, jazz, reggae, etc...all instrumental as of now.
A few influences are The Mars Volta, King Crimson, The Flaming Lips, and Pink Floyd
Gyles formed in late 2008 under the names Karma Marmalade, The Creeps, Gonzo, and possibly even Cowboy Grandpa.
Members included Jeremy Christman on organ/keys, Nick Zimpleman on guitar, Matt Winingham on bass guitar, and Jake Woodard on drums. Woodard would eventually be replaced on drums by Winingham after a few months, and Nathan Scruggs-Cruz stepped in as the new bassist.
