Born in Buffalo on his father's bowling night, the songwriter, musician and entertainer grew up in a blue-collar town with a blue-collar work ethic and an appreciation of blue-collar fun. He has matured into a man of homespun, timeless elegance, often clad in a vintage wear, and telling stories with a delightful precision of language.

Klyma plays guitar, mandolin, voice, harmonica and piano.

His CDs include "New Clothes" (2000), "In the Meantime" (2001), "Not a Complicated Guy" (2003), "Driver" (2006), "Rust Belt Vagabond" (2008). He released a live album in late 2009.

Klyma has opened for Todd Snider, Ramblin' Jack Elliott, Fred Eaglesmith and Jimmy LaFave among others, shared the stage with Jonathan Byrd, Anais Mitchell, Tom Bianchi, Danielle Miraglia, Anthony da Costa and other friends.
