American bass guitarist and skateboarder who has played in bands such as Mercy McCoy, Trace of Day, Sectioned, Rude Squad, King of Denmark, Noble Jones, Philistines, Leadfoot, and Hell on Earth. He teaches music lessons privately and works as a session player in the Tampa, Florida area.

He contributed to the long running Rivot Rag Tampa Bay metal music magazine/publication with a bass guitar column entitled "The Low End" for several years. He is one of the few bass players in metal that uses extensively the slap & pop playing technique, along with two-handed tapping.

Sokol is also known for his sponsored and professional skateboarding career. He started skating in about 1983, and grew up skating with such other local Florida pros as Rodney Mullen and Mike McGill. Sokol is commonly known as "Old School Kyle" or "OSK". He developed and founded the Florida Skate Museum, which captures the history of Florida skateboarding and decks from Florida riders.
