Maine native Kyle Treadwell has a tale for the ages. At a young age, his mother introduced him to healing properties R&B and Soul, with legends such as Michael Jackson, and Prince always coming through the speaker as he grew up. He learned at a young age he wanted to be involved with music.
In the early 2000s, Kyle found his love for hip-hop with rising southern hip-hop artists at the time such as T.I., Lil Wayne and Nelly. This is when Kyle knew this was where he wanted to be in the music world. Which was unheard of from a kid from Hermon, Maine where there was hardly a music scene let alone a hip-hop music scene. He would go on to attend New England School of Communication (now Husson University) in the field of Marketing. In his introduction interview with president of NESCom he told the staff that “He would own a record label” where they scoffed in his face as that was something unheard of out of the state.
“It’s simple, we do this for the kids that have been told their whole lives that they were never gonna be anything.“
Treadwell stated according to his official site.He would soon prove them wrong. After a short venture working with the Kahbang Music Film and Arts festival he set out on his own to form NovaWave Records in 2014 with his lead artist Corey Ellis and Ian Matthew. After quick success with Corey Ellis that same year he quickly learned that Maine just didn’t have the resources for NovaWave to succeed on the level they were looking to achieve. Flash forward to 2018, Kyle moved to Las Vegas where everything changed for the young label owner.
He was introduced to many people that year that would be pivotal in his career moving forward. Managers such as Steve Capo Newland and super producer Beat Billionaire to name a few. He worked on campaigns from Christian Kuya, to Arizona Zervas from behind the scenes. Currently, Kyle plans on taking NovaWave Records out from the shadows and into the major conversions in 2020.
