He’s released a steady stream of ultra-catchy and viscerally emotional singles over the past few months; a dizzying whirlwind of pop, hip-hop, EDM, R&B, punk, alternative and indie, bubbling with energy and authenticity.
Leaving college, Reyvn made the brave decision to clean house. “When I started accepting things I didn’t want to accept — like admitting I had addiction issues, depression, and learning disabilities — I started to feel a positive change,” Reyvn reveals. . During this time, he immersed himself in music and spent hours perfecting his aesthetic, honing his innate artistic sensibility, learning to produce and mix, and studying the art of songwriting. Diving into music with such force sparked his childhood dream of being a professional musician and making a name for himself.
