Ryley & Kaylar

Guitar & Saxophone Duo

jazz / RnB / funk
Performance / Scoring / Recording / Arranging


With a decade of performing in bands, writing music, and scoring films together, Ryley & Kaylar have become one of Vancouver's most prominent music duos and experts of vibe. Together they delight in throwing every genre into the blender, including jazz, RnB, funk, blues, hip-hop, classical, and pop, then turning the dial to maximum. The result is an intimate and relaxing reimagining of stripped down favourites from across the ages, suitable for any occasion and popular with all types of audiences. From weddings and restaurants to festivals and parties, they are sure to captivate with their unique blend of vintage simplicity and elegant modernity.

When not performing across the lower mainland as an instrumental duo, the two are often found lighting up the stage with funk/rock atomic dance party, Raincity. Ryley & Kaylar are also part of a vast network of incredible local musicians and artists, and can be found building upon their community on Wednesday nights at The Heritage Grill in New Westminster. They bring together friends and members of the scene for a weekly wine-worthy evening of vibes and good times.
