2017 Retrospective

A whirlwind year of music and travel

It was a stellar year! And my honey’s photos are popular… :) thanks @maxtelzerow xoxoxo Happy New Year everyone!!

A post shared by Bryce Kulak (@brycekulak) on

Before I reflect on the year just passed, I have a gig coming up on January 22nd!

I’m part of Piano Fest at The Burdock, a hip music venue in Toronto. They’re bringing in a grand piano, and I’ll be performing on a double bill with Robbie Grunwald. All the details and tickets are here. What a great way to kick off 2018!

My year in review was revealing; it’s difficult to discern while it’s happening, but I did so many things musical and otherwise this year! The general trend is upward, I’m happy to say, and I consider it one of my busiest, most satisfying and productive years ever.

I performed From Weimar to Vaudeville in Deep River and Toronto ON; The Judgement of Paris in Burlington ON; saw some amazing Shakespeare on the stage of the Winter Garden Theatre in Toronto; did a six-week run of 2 Pianos 4 Hands in Chemainus BC; played the Music Mondays series in Toronto; performed Bohemians in Brooklyn at the RCM’s Mazzoleni Hall in Toronto and in Midland ON; attended the TSO several times; workshopped a new show in Calgary AB; played a fundraiser for refugees; went to an awesome offal party; premiered The Missing Pages at chamber music festivals in Ottawa, Niagara, and Parry Sound ON; went on a whirlwind long-weekend trip to Montreal; composed and performed To The Light in Calgary; then A Christmas Carol in Kamloops BC. I listened to, learned, and composed a ton of new music in 2017, and also somehow managed to teach almost 400 music lessons. I finally arrived home a couple of weeks ago, after three months away, and after a compact and joyous holiday season, suddenly it’s 2018! What a rush.

Many more exciting and innovative musical, theatrical, and recording projects are upcoming this year, so stay tuned to follow my plans and process. Please sign up for my newsletter so I can keep you posted.

If it’s your first visit, thanks for coming! I’ll link to some videos of current projects I’m involved in, and past projects like the musical film The Man That Got Away.

I’m really grateful for the support of my fans over the past year; for “spinning” my music on your mp3 players or even your (gasp!) CD player; for your kind personal words and public reviews about my live music and my recorded albums; for attending my live shows; and for your general encouragement and support. Thanks from the bottom of my heart! And kindly keep coming back for more; I resolve to be more active in updating my content!

Thanks again for following; have a very fortunate year, and enjoy the music.

Summer News

Dora Awards, Judgment in Haliburton, Bohos in Nova Scotia

The summer of 2016 is shaping up to be rewarding and exciting. After teaching a songwriting clinic at a music camp in Quebec, I'll be off to Haliburton ON and Chester NS to perform in two of the three chamber musicals I've co-created with Tom Allen and friends. But first, what should I wear to the gala?

It's nice to be able to share that the group of us who created Reframed, the collection of three short musicals that premiered this spring in the Art Gallery of Ontario, have been collectively nominated for a Dora Award for Outstanding Production of a Musical. I'll be attending the festivities, but oh, what tie shall I choose?

La Casati, the musical I co-wrote with Erin Shields for Reframed, had an encore performance at my recent Soulepper cabaret. Highlights have now been released as a podcast, so if you missed the sold-out performances of Reframed at the AGO, hear the cabaret performance of La Casati here.

Tom Allen's The Judgement of Paris is coming to Haliburton ON as part of the Highlands Summer Festival. We open July 24 for three performances. Next we're off to the Chester Playhouse for a run of Bohemians in Brooklyn August 3-6.

We made a new preview video for Bohemians; check it out!

You can learn more about all three of the chamber musicals I do with Tom on our artist page at Fox Entertainment.

The Bryce Kulak Spring Fling

Soulpepper Cabaret Series April 30 2016

It's spring, and fresh exciting things are popping up!

Join us this Saturday April 30 at The Bryce Kulak Spring Fling at Soulpepper Theatre in Toronto.

Tickets are almost sold out in this intimate cabaret space in Canada's biggest urban theatre. Featuring original music and lyrics from my works for stage and screen, I'll be welcoming special guest Tom Allen on trombone in the first half. The second act opens with an encore performance of La Casati, the 20-minute musical that Governor General Award-winning playwright Erin Shields and I co-wrote for Reframed at the Art Gallery of Ontario, with Kaylee Harwood and Tim Funnell from the original cast, and Colleen Winton in the title role.

The Marchesa Luisa Casati was one of the most talked-about personalities of the first half the 20th century. Our musical is inspired by Augustus John's bold 1919 painting of her, which hangs Paris salon-style in the AGO and has been voted the second most popular artwork in the gallery.

If you missed the premiere of La Casati, which is likely as the performances at the AGO sold out quickly, this is your chance to experience it! The evening will also featuring music from Tom Allen's chamber musicals Bohemians in Brooklyn, The Judgment of Paris, and From Weimar to Vaudeville; Trevor Anderson's movie musical The Man That Got Away; and a complete performance of the songs from Bears by Matthew MacKenzie. Eccentric, inventive, and thought-provoking songs conjure early theatre music, the jazz age, and vaudeville. It's a fresh bouquet of cabaret; won’t you join us? This is a Spring Fling you don't want to miss! Grab a ticket before they're gone.

2 Pianos 4 Hands at Neptune Theatre in Halifax

Canada's most successful play hits the east coast!

I had an amazing time doing 2 Pianos 4 Hands in Halifax in March 2016 with my hilarious and talented co-performer Richard Todd Adams. The theatre made a great preview video of the show, the best I've ever seen! It really gives a taste of what the show is like. Funny, touching, thrilling, and highly musical! Take a look and listen:

A fresh musical bouquet.

La Casati, Judgment of Paris, & Bryce Kulak Spring Fling!

The Judgment of Paris with Tom Allen tours northern Ontario April 6-9
From Weimar to Vaudeville with Tom Allen plays Port Hope ON April 17
Reframed, featuring my songs for the new short musical La Casati written with playwright Erin Shields, premieres at the Art Gallery of Ontario April 12-17

…and to top it all off, The Bryce Kulak Spring Fling hits the Soulpepper Cabaret Series April 30! To give a little more detail:

La Casati was inspired by Augustus John's painting The Marchesa Casati, one of the most popular pieces at the AGO. Reframed is a collection of three musical theatre pieces jumpstarted by art, to be performed in the gallery before the paintings themselves. There are three wonderful singing actors, accompanied by piano, cello, and winds. It was a real thrill to be asked to participate in this unique project, and I'm very happy with the music that's come out of the process. The show will have 8 performances April 12-17.

I'm also tickled that I've been asked to perform a second show this season as part of the Soulpepper Cabaret Series at the Young Centre for the Performing Arts. This comes on the heels of a sold-out cabaret last September. See links at top for details and tickets.

The three "chamber-musicals" I co-created and perform with Tom Allen continue to tour across Canada; besides our Ontario dates this spring, we have upcoming shows in Nova Scotia, Alberta, and BC. You can check the Fox Entertainment page for Tom Allen to see all our upcoming performances.

The Bryce Kulak Revue

A solo cabaret and another run of 2 Pianos 4 Hands!

Award-winning artist Bryce Kulak presents this evening of original songs, stories, and instrumental piano pieces. The Bryce Kulak Revue is an updated version of his solo show, including some of his most popular songs while incorporating new work from his award-winning score for the play Bears. Bryce will also be introducing the audience to some little-known gems discovered in his 78-speed record collection from the 1920s and '30s, an era for which he has a particular affinity. Come to the cabaret, and let Bryce sing and play his way into your heart!

"Focused, specific and intriguing stories…appealing voice... grand, glorious gravitas and elegant flourishes…fine piano work. These are well-crafted, articulate, literate songs. The cool Kulak meditates or boldly states - and always captivates." - Cabaret Scenes NYC

Bryce Kulak is an award-winning artist, performing and creating new works in music and theatre. He has played major roles across Canada for over two decades, and is now one half of the cast of 2 Pianos 4 Hands.

Bryce composed and starred in the movie-musical The Man That Got Away, which premiered at the Berlin International Film Festival and went on to screen and win awards worldwide. Bryce wrote and performed award-winning songs for the new play Bears. He co-created and performs in Bohemians in Brooklyn, The Judgment of Paris, and From Weimar to Vaudeville, theatrical chamber music concerts hosted by CBC's Tom Allen; the shows premiered at Music Niagara, Chamberfest Ottawa, and the Global Cabaret Festival at the Young Centre in Toronto, and continue to tour across Canada. His music was heard in B.C. Place Stadium as the finale of the Yukon Experience at the Vancouver Olympics. Bryce has been a guest soloist with popular crossover group Quartetto Gelato. His albums as a singer-songwriter, Welcome and Tin Can Telephone, as well as the soundtrack to The Man That Got Away, are available on iTunes.

Tickets from $20 (prices include all fees and taxes)

COMING UP: 2 Pianos 4 Hands at the Grand Theatre in London ON. The show runs October 13 - 31st! Here's a compilation of warm-up and practice clips I made that includes some music from 2 Pianos:

Pink Carpet Performance, Chamber Musicals Galore

Bryce plays a VIP Gala and tours the chamber music circuit!

Spring 2015: I’m playing a solo gig next week, and a few more shows with CBC’s Tom Allen through the summer. Here come the details:

First, I’ll be making a special appearance at the Inside Out Toronto LGBT Film Festival, as part of their opening night Gala Pink Carpet VIP event on Thursday March 21. I’m to be the soundtrack of the private cocktail reception! The musical documentary I wrote music for and starred in, The Man That Got Away, screened at Inside Out in 2012, so it’s very cool to be asked back to the festival for a live performance. I’ll be featuring some “classic” Bryce Kulak songs from my early catalogue, as well as sharing a few choice numbers from recent projects including the Tom Allen shows and the new play Bears which I premiered in Edmonton recently. It’s going to be glamourous, darlings! Quick, plan your outfit!

Next, more chamber music shows! I’m loving being part of this series of three classical crossover “chamber-musicals”; they have a bit of a concert feel, plus new pop music and dramatic storytelling. Here’s some video from our rocking Judgment performance in Golden BC; check it out!

A Summer Full of Music

"Bohemians" and "Judgment" performances around Ontario

Summer of 2013 was packed with shows and exciting developments. We remounted and performed Bohemians in Brooklyn, the cabaret/chamber music piece I co-created with CBC's Tom Allen, at the Kincardine ON and Leith ON music festivals, as well as the Highlands Summer Festival in Haliburton ON. Then we premiered our new piece, The Judgment of Paris, in which Debussy and Ravel compete for the love of The City of Light, at the Ottawa Chamberfest and Music Niagara. At that last festival, I also made a special appearance as a guest artist with Quartetto Gelato, performing three of my original songs in new arrangements for the notorious crossover-classical group. What a thrill!

Also, a new recording! The music from Bohemians in Brooklyn is now available on CD! The disc features 17 tracks, 16 of which I play piano and/or sing on. We don't have an online retailer yet; to order your copy, send me a cheque for $20 (made out to Bryce Kulak) and I'll send you a copy, shipping included (Canada only). My address:

G1-10 Morrow Ave Toronto ON M6R 2J1

Stay tuned for iTunes/CDbaby availability.

In the meantime, my other albums Welcome, Tin Can Telephone, and The Man That Got Away are still available on both iTunes and CDbaby (links to the left), and many other online retailers (Amazon, Napster, Rhapsody…). Order a physical copy on CD, or download instantly TODAY!

Here's a video preview of Bohemians in Brooklyn:

Prizes, Premieres, Performances!

Film Tours World! Chamber Music Premiere! Gigs in Alberta!

Things have been so busy since my last update that it feels as though I must have been caught in a time vortex. Let’s catch up. Here goes:

The Man That Got Away, the short movie-musical-documentary I co-wrote and starred in (trailer below), made a very successful premiere at the Berlinale (Berlin International Film Festival) in February; it won the DAAD Short Film prize, the only moneyed prize for shorts at the festival! With such fortuitous beginnings, it has gone on to play festivals all over the world, including Edmonton, Austin, Kyiv, Toronto, Zürich, Freiburg, Vancouver, Stockholm, London UK, Calgary, Mexico City, Krakow, Belfast, Valencia, Milan, Rio de Janeiro, Sarajevo, Los Angeles, and the Honolulu Rainbow Film Festival, where the film won Best Short Film. Upcoming screenings are in Melbourne, Russia, Croatia, Hong Kong, Austria, Portugal, Romania, and Turkey. The film will also screen at Beach Pride Uganda, that country’s first ever LGBT film festival.

It’s been an honour to be part of a project that has already seen such international acclaim and attention. The soundtrack album, complete with bonus remixes by Chad VanGaalen, Cadence Weapon, Bebop Cortez and others, is now available worldwide on iTunes and at CD Baby. You can stream all the songs for free at CBC Music.

In July, I sang and played piano in a new theatrical chamber music piece, “The Bohemians in Brooklyn,” created and performed with CBC host and trombonist Tom Allen, cabaret performer Patricia O’Callaghan, and harpist Lori Gemmell. The piece tells the story of the Brooklyn, NY brownstone where W.H. Auden, Benjamin Britten, Gypsy Rose Lee and others lived and made art. Through narration and music by the inhabitants and their friends, as well as six original tunes, we tell the story of the establishment and eventual disbandment of the notorious artists’ residence. Sex, gossip, heartbreak, intrigue, and some truly beautiful music make for an absorbing and entertaining evening. We premiered at Music Niagara and Chamberfest Ottawa, and are now booking other venues and presenters. Stay tuned for further performances!

Up next, a series of shows in Canmore, AB. The Songs of Bryce Kulak is a revue of original tunes by yours truly, performed in an intimate art-gallery setting. If you’re close by in Alberta or BC, join me Friday through Sunday evenings at 7:30pm August 10th through 19th, and I shall sing and play for you! Tickets should be booked in advance through the Carter-Ryan Gallery; click for all the details!

More exciting news to follow. Thanks for your continued support; I hope to see you in Canmore!

A World Premiere in Germany

"The Man That Got Away" at the Berlin International Film Festival

The Man That Got Away from Trevor Anderson on Vimeo.

In spring of 2009 I began collaborating on a movie-musical short film with Trevor Anderson, director and producer at Dirt City Films. (Click to read more about the film!) We wrapped up production in fall of 2011. I composed music for six new songs, and also wound up starring in the film as Trevor's great uncle Jimmy. The soundtrack was recorded at Doug Organ's Edmontone Studio, and we shot entirely on location in a spiral parking garage in downtown Edmonton. Now, after a lot of hard work and much anticipation, we are gearing up for our big trip to Berlin for the film's world premiere at the 62nd Berlinale film fest! It's the only Canadian short accepted into the festival. Needless to say, I'm super excited to watch the film on the big screen with a live audience. There will be several opportunities to catch the film during the festival, and we've also been invited to a special screening and artists' talk at the Canadian Embassy. It's exciting!

Of course, Berlin isn't the only place you can catch a screening of "The Man That Got Away." There will be a private screening, for crew and supporters, in Edmonton on February 25th. To receive an invite, donate to our CD soundtrack fundraising campaign on IndieGoGo. There are various rewards available for each donation level (including copies of my album "Tin Can Telephone"), so check out the perks!

Because the budget for the film is gone, I'm paying my own way to be at the premiere in Germany. To that end, I'm playing a fundraising show at Le Balluchon Raymond (click for details!) in Toronto, on Thursday January 26th, doors at 7:30pm, show at 8pm. Tickets are $20 at the door (fundraiser!); come, and I'll sing for you. You'll even get to hear a sneak preview of the soundtrack!

More announcements to follow on other festivals where you can see the film.

Complaints Choir Documentary Now Online!

Harbourfront Centre's World Stage festival, May 2011

As part of Harbourfront Centre's World Stage festival, I composed and directed the Toronto Complaints Choir Song with over 120 participants. The media attention was overwhelming; see below. We had a lot of fun rehearsing with the choir, doing surprise performances all over Toronto, and making this video together! The complete Song video will be online soon. Stay tuned for reunion news…

Toronto Complaints Choir

Harbourfront Centre's World Stage festival, March 2011

As the composer and leader of the Toronto Complaints Choir, it was my job to distill the essence of over 1000 complaints submitted by the public into a song. It's almost 8 minutes long! Now I'm conducting the choir, also made up of members of the public, in performances all over Toronto the week of March 21st. Check out lifestinks.ca to learn about the project. The National Post is running a series of diary entries that I've written about the choir; pick up a copy or search "Bryce Kulak" on their website March 21 - 25 to read the installments. There will be video documentation of the final product on YouTube, so stay tuned.

Live in Peace
Live in Peace
Find your place and you will
Know that you are free

I wanna let it all out
I wanna let it all go
And find out who I can be
I see the same thing in you
We gotta look in our hearts
And find our destiny
Frozen by the dark
Light it with your Soul
It holds the spark

Live in Peace!
Live in Peace!
Live in Peace and you will
Know yourself
You will laugh most easily
You will find your place and you will
Know that you are free

Find your place and
Find your place and
Find your place and
Find your place

And you will know that you are free

Bryce has been "blogged!" He describes the experience as "warm, damp, and slightly messy, but not unpleasant." Read about his recent performance at Hugh's Room on Amanda Campbell's excellent theatre blog. Scroll down the blog a little further (just a little further down, please) to read about The Black Rider.

Bryce was recently featured as a guest on CBC Radio One's national program GO!, hosted by Brent Bambury.

Anderson/Kulak Collaboration

January 1, 2009

Further to the story below, Bryce and D.C. Anderson (veteran cabaret singer-songwriter and Phantom cast-member) have collaborated on a new song called "What's Happened Since". The song was recorded by D.C. in New York for his forthcoming album. Visit D.C.'s website, where D.C.'s interpretation of Bryce's song "Tin Can Telephone" is currently featured as song of the month.

CBC: Burgeoning Bryce

July 9th, 2008

Phantom Sings Kulak, + Bonus Tidbit

April 1, 2008

D.C. Anderson, a performer in the U.S. touring company of The Phantom of the Opera, has recorded Bryce's song Tin Can Telephone and released it on his new CD, Our Story. You can buy the CD through D.C.'s website; all the songs are great! Bryce is awfully flattered to have the song recorded by such an accomplished artist.

Here's a neat tidbit: if you click on the bottom right corner of the music player on this page, you can open it in a popup window. Then continue listening as you browse this site, or other sites on the whole wide internet!

I know we've been out of touch for a while, but tonight is Chinese New Year, so we wish you 恭喜发财 (Gōngxǐ fācái)! Since January, Bryce has been scouring the shops for fantastic deals during a clearly extended boxing-season. You should see the cheap, cute sweaters he's found! In the spirit of all things new and affordable, we invite you to do some bargain-hunting of your own. Did you know that Bryce's album(s) are now available on many more online stores? Click below to begin your hunt:
Hard-copies of Tin Can Telephone are also availble in Edmonton at blackbyrd myoozik, and in Toronto at Bounty (Harbourfront Centre). Happy shopping!

Thank You

December 1, 2007

What started out as a recital planned for a church in Edmonton became a full-blown concert with lights, sound, and stripping in a legitimate theatre, followed by a mini-tour of Alberta. Bryce would like to thank Amy Seeley, everyone who made the Edmonton CD Release possible, the media who agressively publicized it, and everyone who came to see him sing and act silly. It was a truly memorable evening. Let's do it again soon! If you missed the concert in Edmonton, be comforted by the news that select footage of the event will be released on YouTube in the coming weeks. To get a taste of Bryce in the meantime, click here to Google him. You know you want to.

November 1, 2007

At the beginning of October, it was Bryce's two-year anniversary of moving to Toronto. It's about time, therefore, that he make his first visit back to Edmonton! Bryce will be playing a CD release recital there on


Thanks for waiting so patiently. Bryce is pleased to announce this event, and especially thrilled that it will be opened by the sweet and sexy songstress Amy Seeley, a beloved Edmonton ex-pat flying back from Portland. The venue is The Westbury Theatre at the Transalta Arts Barns, and tickets are for sale through the Fringe Theatre Adventures box office (online or in person). Use a red Sharpie on your "Firemen 2007" calendar!

I Can Do It All by Myself!

August 23, 2007

All grown up, Bryce can now update his own gosh-darn website! (Special thanks to his gorgeous web mistress, and the glorious cellist on both his albums, Hannah Donovan.) You can expect more regular updates to the site from now on, so check back often. Of late, Bryce was a performer in The Spiegel Show in Toronto, a completely mad cabaret-vaudeville-burlesque extravaganza with singing, dancing, tasteful vintage stripping, trapeze, drinks and grub. The show was extended thrice to the delight of sold-out crowds. You can visit the Gallery page to see pictures of Bryce performing in the Spiegeltent, shirtless no less! Toronto is crossing its collective fingers that the Tent will make a return next summer...In other news, there are at least two major theatre projects for which Bryce will be composing the scores, so keep your hungry eyes on this space, or quickly and painlessly subscribe your own darn self to the Bryce Kulak Newsletter. ALL of us here at brycekulak.com thank you for visiting!

3 for 3

August 23, 2007

You may not be aware of it, but you've already fallen in love with Jeff Kulak, Bryce's younger brother. He is the clever little man who devised the illustrations for both of Bryce's albums, and in fact did the entire stunning design for Tin Can Telephone. A graduate of the University of Alberta's art and design program, he also studied for a year at the University of New South Wales in Sydney. As a graphic designer and illustrator, he leaves his indelible, beautiful, quirky mark on everything he creates. Jeff freelances in Edmonton, and you'll surely want to check out his website. A bit more trivia: Kara, the third and final of the Kulak offspring, has toured the world as a dancer with Edmonton's Shumka.

As big as a piano?

You can now get your greedy little fingers on all sorts of Bryce Kulak gossip (and legit news) simply by subscribing to the Bryce Kulak Newsletter. It will tell you all about Bryce's latest activities, why the word iTunes is making him squeal with glee, where to get your own copy of his new album release, and how big he is compared to a piano.
