"The songs are just packed with personality…Kyle was also a joy to work with engaging with notes in a very positive way. All execs and myself would have Kyle at the top of our list for any future commissions."

Kyle Riabko is a composer and songwriter who has been telling stories through music his entire life. After a childhood of honing his musicianship in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan, Canada, Kyle released a full length album of original music on Columbia / Aware Records at the age of 17.
He subsequently spent his teen years performing as an opening act for a wide range of artists, including BB King, James Brown, Buddy Guy, Jason Mraz, and John Mayer.
Since then, Kyle’s career has included a little bit of everything – composing, songwriting, producing, touring, acting on television/ Broadway, and creating the acclaimed West End show, Close To You: Bacharach Reimagined. Kyle’s musical arrangements for the show received the very enthusiastic support of his mentor, 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.”
At the root of Kyle’s colourful career lies one common denominator: A never-ending love of music and storytelling.
