“Kulak’s versatility knows no bounds.”

“The precociously talented Kulak, at 23, is a 12-year showbiz veteran … Not only does he sing and play the piano, he composes, in an unclassifiably quirky, jazzy vein, as his CD Welcome reveals.”

" … Bryce Kulak's songs are, as usual, terrific – the man is a contemporary rhymin' Simon in the great Tin Pan Alley tradition."

“There’s a whimsical, off-kilter, jazzy quality in his music and lyrics that might call to mind Harry Nilsson or Rufus Wainwright.”

“Bryce Kulak … sings like a dream and acts with integrity, as performances in Oliver!, Peter Pan, and The Music Man attest.”

“‘Pelican’ … with its amusingly rhymed first-hand account of a guy living inside one, has a distinctly musical theatre vibe … with a touch of vaudeville …”

“His cabaret-style songs are precisely fanciful, the handiwork of a daydreaming perfectionist. There are similarities to Rufus Wainwright, and though some of Kulak’s compositions could be construed as ‘children’s songs,’ comparisons to Raffi – to whom I mean nothing but respect – are out of the question.” - Edmonton Journal


"The songs are written by the fantastically talented Bryce Kulak … [with] such musical gems as 'The Ballad of the Orphan Sock' … It will bring a tear to the eye – it's that beautiful."

“[He’s like] Burt Bacharach morphed into Rufus Wainwright – he just whips up these little songs that are ridiculously fantastic.”

“Bryce Kulak [is] the new brilliant wunderkind ... he performed a song at Oh Susanna and at the end of the song the entire audience leapt to their feet in a movie-football-game fantasy standing ovation.” - SEE Magazine

Bio

Bryce Kulak's cabaret songs will weave themselves into your warmest sweaters. His crisp diction makes it easy to sing along. If you like songs about bicycles, depressed little girls, hot air balloons, skyscrapers, historical buildings, white trash, death and mourning, colourful obsessions, misplaced laundry, wine for breakfast, selfish fish, underwear and lingerie, and primitive telecommunications, you will love his new album: Tin Can Telephone.

Originally from Edmonton, Kulak grew up onstage, acting in theatre and playing classical piano. An award-winning composer, he has performed with symphony orchestras and in theatrical world premieres. He crafts original songs that brilliantly showcase his talents as a dramatist, vocalist, and musician. His six-track debut album, Welcome, achieved a loyal following worldwide. Tin Can Telephone is his first full-length recording, presenting 14 new songs in arrangements from lush chamber orchestra to solo piano and voice. Often compared to the great songwriters of the original cabaret era, Kulak carries the torch of this compelling genre into the new century.

“Bryce Kulak is one of Edmonton's most sophisticated songwriters… Tin Can Telephone boasts some of the loveliest, most exquisitly crafted songs I've heard all year… a marvelous accomplishment, not to mention one of the most beautifully packaged indie discs of the year.”
