Your New Favorite Album: Kyle Riabko's Richard Rodgers Imagined
Remember hunky Broadway star Kyle Riabko from Spring Awakening and Hair? Well, he's got a real knack for reimagining classics, selling out NYC and London venues a few years ago with his show What's It All About?: Bacharach Reimagined. Now, he's back at it...this time with swoonworthy covers of classic Richard Rodgers songs from all your favorite musicals.
The first track of Richard Rodgers Reimagined is an acoustic version of "Oh, What A Beautiful Mornin'" from Oklahoma that will make you feel like you're waking up a bright summer day when all is right with the world. As the album continues, you slowly fall in love with Kyle's soothing arrangements of these classic showtunes. His version of "You'll Never Walk Alone" from Carousel will make you hope and pray that the upcoming Broadway revival will sound as fresh and as relevant as this. Hear some snippets of the album in the video below.
Bonus: Wanna see him perform live? You're in luck. He'll be playing songs from the album at Joe's Pub in November.
