Eytan Ribner is an award-winning singer-songwriter, comedian, photographer and (self-proclaimed) #SelfieKing.
In collaboration with accomplished producer and musician Marty Rifkin (BruceSpringsteen, Dwight Yoakam, Jewel, and Weird Al), Eytan released a new album "When I'm Singing the Blues" as a follow-up to his debut album "I've Got Issues" currently available to stream or buy on iTunes, Spotify, Apple Music, or wherever you listen to music.
His newest single "Take Me as I Am" has been turned into an animated lyric video that can be viewed on all his social media accounts. In addition to being featured on the Southbound 35 podcast, his singles, "It's All About Me", "Too Many Women", "No More Love Songs", "I Could Have Died", "I Hate to Valet" and "Notin' Stronger Than a Broken Heart" are all award-winning music videos that have screened at film festivals around the world.
These songs, written and sung by Eytan, are very personal and cover a wide range of narcissism, egotism, and self-centerednosity which can be heard in his single #SelfieMan!
He has a varied background:
Comedy (Upright Citizens Brigade – voted least-likely to succeed, the Comedy Store),
Photography (Art Center College of Design, self-proclaimed King of the Serious Selfie),
Finance (CPA, dormant in CA and NY) and
Played basketball for Golda Meir’s home team in Jerusalem
(likes to say he used to be an athlete).
Tales from the road...
"Traveling with Eytan: To Isreal"
Recorded live at Adam Barnhardt's The Clown House in Downtown Los Angeles, Bluesman and Comedian Eytan Ribner speaks with Katrina Brown about visiting "the holy land". This podcast includes funny tales from the road, a suprise caller, and Eytan's personal (hilarious) history with playing basketball.
Eytan's photography covers a lifelong passion for travel, community, discovery and the passion to explore. Included in the galleries are photo collections from South East Asia and Isreal to more contemporary works ("Serious Selfies"). Upon first exhibiting his work in 2013-2014 Eytan's photos have continued to show at different photography and art events on the West Coast included MOPLA (Month of Photography LA) among others. Eytan plans on exhibiting as long as people keep asking him to - and until his passion for travel and exploration fade, which hopefully won't be anytime soon!
