He later appeared on the TV series Goosebumps (1997) and Are You Afraid of the Dark? He appeared in the made-for-TV movie Prom Queen: The Marc Hall Story in 2004, and had a recurring role on the Canadian drama Instant Star as Vincent Spiederman until 2008. The EP has 5 original songs, written and performed by Tyler Kyte.
Kyte played a rockstar on the show Instant Star (for 4 seasons) where he was the guitarist for the backup band for Jude Harrison (Alexz Johnson).
It’s no question that these two young stars have already conquered the entertainment world.
Both have been actors, singers, and musicians from childhood, both are working on upcoming albums, and both currently star in the Gemini award-winning teen drama, Instant Star.
After playing in Sweet Thing for a number of years, he's now one of the leaders of the cover group Dwayne Gretzky, which is practically Toronto's house band. I was still 23, 24 and all the kids were kind of the perfect age to have grown up with . " It's "you watched me on TV every morning." So I'm 29... ." This is one of my best friends we're talking about. I went to a small town high school in Lindsay, Ontario, very much a farmer high school. Just every day someone saying something, always inquiring, "did you and Elisha ever... " And it was always like "no, thanks anyway though." But no, yeah, seeing them, their success has been amazing. You're in Dwayne Gretzky, and for awhile there in Toronto there was Sheezer, there was the Spice Girls tribute, there's Vag Halen, Hervana. Because I was in Sweet Thing and I was the drummer. I just compiled a list of songs we've performed and it's at about 320 right now.
And then they asked if I could reach out to Elisha. I said yes, but I didn't really think that she would respond. We found each other on Twitter maybe four years ago and just sort of said a quick hello. You could tell that she was going to pursue this career. And that's led me to Sweet Thing for a number of years and now Dwayne Gretzky, which has been fantastic. So those blocks that are booked off, I can't audition for stuff that shoots during that time.
But I was like "I guess I might as well." So I wrote her a message on Twitter and she got back within like an hour being like "yeah, I'm in, here's my info." How was it reconnecting with those guys? So you weren't interested in pursuing acting as your main career after the show ended? I was probably 17 and I was like "this is what I want to do." I was finished [with the show] when I was 16 and I was .
The GHOSTS OF GIRLFRIENDS PAST soundtrack includes the biggest movie stars in the world: Matthew Mc Conaughey, Jennifer Garner and Michael Douglas as we follow a serial dater as he looks at his life past, present and future and the true meaning of love.
The soundtrack includes multi-platinum selling artist Gavin Rossdale doing an amazing version of Joe South and Deep Purples classic Hush as well as critical darling Matthew Sweet performing the highly original, and very hummable, title track.
The two songs are "Unraveling" and "Worth Waiting For".
When posed with the question of their futures, Alexz Johnson and Tyler Kyte agreed – they’d like to take over the world.
The CBC Music web series is part Canadian indie scene satire, part showcase for Can Con cameos from the likes of Sam Roberts, Fred Penner and The Kids In The Hall's Kevin Mc Donald. Everyone worked so hard, so many different people working in so many different ways pulling that together.
But, if you're around the same age as I am, there's probably one aspect that will capture your attention more than any other: the (who has a window into the music world through her husband, Menno Versteeg of Hollerado), follows a fictional band called The Plateaus as they attempt to follow up their Indie 88-core hit "YNG LUV" after their lead singer dies while writing the follow-up. It was a fine vibe, but I remember thinking "oh, this is going to take a lot." And then Mac De Marco and Win Butler walked up towards the stage and all of a sudden the room started coming in. I walked up at one point and he was like [in a pitch perfect Jay Baruchel voice] "Tyler Kyte! This is years in the making." Because, like I said, we had never met before. And it's awesome to see people create work for themselves, younger people who are not sitting around waiting for an audition or waiting for someone to call them with an opportunity.
In the show, he performs a different version of the song from his EP, "What You Need" (there are three versions: the original demo, the Let's Talk EP/Instant Star version, and the Talking Pictures version).
The song is on the Songs From Instant Star Three soundtrack, along with two songs that were performed by Johnson on the show.
