KYLE RIABKO is a singer, guitarist, composer and actor who was born in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan. Kyle will next be seen in a featured role on the Netflix series, MIXTAPE. Before starring on Broadway in both Spring Awakening and Hair, Kyle released a full-length album of original music on Columbia Records, and spent his teen years touring as an opening act for a wide range of artists, including BB King, James Brown, John Mayer, Keb Mo, Buddy Guy, Jason Mraz, and others. He has also appeared as an actor in various film and television projects. Riabko created and starred in “What’s It All About? Bacharach Reimagined” at New York Theatre Workshop. The show was named “One of the Year’s 10 Best” by The New York Times, and featured Riabko’s groundbreaking arrangements of the music of Burt Bacharach. Kyle subsequently brought his acclaimed interpretation of the Bacharach catalogue to London, first to The Menier Chocolate Factory, and then to The Criterion Theatre in the West End where it broke boxoffice records and received much critical acclaim as “Close To You: Bacharach Reimagined.” Burt Bacharach attended the opening night of the show in NYC and both openings in London and said, “Kyle has done something truly unique with my music. He’s a beautiful singer and one hell of a guitar player.” In the summer of 2016, Ghostlight Records released The Original London Cast Recording of “Close To You: Bacharach Reimagined” which was produced by Riabko, and also featured some of his original demos which formed the basis of the show. Kyle’s new album “Richard Rodgers Reimagined” was recently released by Ghostlight Records.
