Riabko's already 15 year career has included a little bit of everything – songwriting, touring, producing, acting on television and on Broadway, creating an acclaimed off-broadway and West End show – but all of it comes from the same place:
A never-ending love of MUSIC.
After a childhood of honing his musicianship in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan, Canada, Kyle spent his teen years performing as an opening act for a wide range of artists, including BB King, James Brown, Buddy Guy, Keb Mo, Jason Mraz, and John Mayer, and others. He released a full length album (Before I Speak) of original music on Columbia/Aware Records at the age of 17.
Next, Kyle went on to star on Broadway and in the first national tour of the acclaimed rock musical “Spring Awakening” and subsequently starred on Broadway in the hit revival of “Hair”. He has also appeared as an actor in various film and tv projects.
Most recently, Kyle created and starred in “What's It All About?: Bacharach Reimagined” at New York Theatre Workshop (“Once”, “Rent”, “Peter and the Starcatcher”) and subsequently in London at The Menier Chocolate Factory and The Criterion Theater in the West end, where the show broke box office records. In London, the show was retitled - Close To You: Bacharach Reimagined.
Kyle did the musical arrangements for the show which received the very enthusiastic support of Burt Bacharach, who said “Kyle has done something truly unique with my music. He’s a beautiful singer and one hell of a guitar player.”
In 2017, Kyle released an original EP online, "Holding My Breath". He continues to work on several upcoming projects and is currently performing solo shows around the country.
