Kyle Esplin is internationally recognised as a truly great entertainer and his all-action live show is mesmerising, it includes everything from tender Ballads, to Classical, to Rock’n’Roll, and has to be seen to be believed. Kyle takes Boogie-Woogie piano playing to an entirely new level and he makes a piano ring like no other.
From a family of entertainers, Kyle’s maternal grandfather was a Scottish tenor, his mother, Sandra, is a former world champion highland dancer, his father, Joss Esplin, a singer guitarist and together, Joss & Sandra formed one of the most successful Scottish duos with an all singing all dancing show, delighting visitors to Scotland and audiences on American and Canadian tours. With exposure to a wide variety of music, and an old upright piano always available at home, music was coming out of his fingertips before he started school. By the age of 10, Kyle was accompanying his parent’s shows during his school holidays.
Although self-taught, Kyle was professional by the age of 16, and musical director for several Scottish Shows touring Canada and Scotland.
Appearances on British television and at music Festivals across Europe soon followed. He was honoured to be invited to perform at Jerry Lee Lewis’s 65th & 66th birthday parties in Memphis. He has also performed on stage being accompanied by James Burton, Elvis's Las Vegas band leader.
Kyle has performed as a headline entertainer on many luxury cruise ships for Silver Seas, Crystal Cruises, Cunard, Royal Caribbean, Carnival, Celebrity, P&O, Holland America, Norwegian, Radisson and Princess cruise lines.
At the Liberace Museum in Las Vegas he was invited to play on the Liberace's famous diamond encrusted mirrored piano. Kyle’s rocking version of Mozart’s “Turkish March” would have Liberace's approval.
Kyle has recorded 7 CDs to date, with select tracks being featured on albums such as "The Best Of British Country". Before the night is over, Kyle guarantees to have the venue Rockin' and Rolling!
In addition to playing piano and singing, Kyle also plays the guitar, bass guitar, clarinet and melodica, and produces music in his home studio.
