Ryan Stylez born June 1, 1992, was raised in the Bay Area, Ca. With a love of music and a keen ear to its influence on pop culture, it wasn’t until high school that Ryan decided he would give a career in music a fair shot. Seeing his classmates in bands and kids trying to pursue their own music aspirations with MySpace and YouTube, Ryan decided to take a different route. He worked odd jobs and saved up money for a few years; enough money to work with artists and groups who had already created their own buzz in the music industry. It was during this time Ryan had to figure out if he had “IT” for a real shot at his dream. With little support and the reality that he may not get the reception he wanted for his artistry, Ryan pulled together a team of leaders he believed could propel him to pop success.
“At first, people took my passion for music and my beginning stages as an artist like a joke. They thought I would be like every other kid trying to be somebody. But I had a game plan and couldn’t let their hate phase me. I learned real quickly that the negative feedback was inevitable. It was turning that into a positive motivator that really kept me going, and is what truly keeps me at it every day. I want to prove that nothing is impossible, and that if you tell yourself you are going to do something, you can do it as long as you don’t let anything stop you.”
In Late 2011, Ryan was contacted by an A&R from Universal Republic about working on a project to get him to the next level. In February of 2012, Ryan moved to Hollywood, CA to record his debut project which he released nationwide a few months later including a summer single featuring Ray J that was played on radio stations across the country.
Ryan Stylez started his own label (Reign Creatives/Reign Records) in 2014 and began working with social media stars who had the talent to take their fame to the next level and into the music business. Ryan has since been launching artists careers, most noticeably his Miami based artist Melissa Sandoval, who built a following in the millions and is promoting her debut project now.
In 2016, Ryan has recorded a new album and just released the first single, “Down” featuring Sage the Gemini which is now available on iTunes. Today, you can get a glimpse of the single in full visual mode.
