Ann Arbor’s electrifying musical maestro, Kyler Wilkins, is back for his triumphant third appearance on the Ark stage! But this time, he’s not just bringing you music – he’s taking you on an exhilarating journey through the sonic universe like never before.
Prepare to be spellbound as Kyler, the mastermind behind the mesmerizing loop station magic of Ki5, reimagines your favorite R&B, pop, and soul hits with the finesse of an a cappella virtuoso. His music isn’t just a performance; it’s a soul-stirring experience that transcends genres and defies expectations.
Drawing inspiration from musical luminaries like Reggie Watts, Bobby McFerrin, and Bon Iver, Kyler’s authentic, empathetic, and liberating style is nothing short of transformative. His artistry has catapulted him to the spotlight, sharing stages with legends such as Erykah Badu, CeCe Peniston, and Absofacto – a testament to his boundless versatility as both an artist and a show-stopping performer.
But that’s not all. In this extraordinary evening of Voices, Kyler unveils a side of himself that goes beyond the Ki5 persona. He’ll be pushing the boundaries of his signature sounds, treating you to cherished classics, and unraveling the enigma that is Ki5.
