Reyshard, The Emerald City Superstar


At the age of ten, artist Reyshard first knew of his destiny and wrote his first songs. This was followed by years down the line studying music, acting, songwriting and recording. The efforts bloomed into artistic freedom of expression sharing the universal language of music with the world. But the world started at home. A Seattle native, Reyshard is constructing his throne first there with elements of rock, pop, funk, and blues. “You have to take the journey with me through the experience of my music and mystery. While listening, follow me through a timeless space as I use music to bring people together in the spirit of unity to promote positive social change, love, and respect,” he explains about his work.

Reyshard’s sound is sweetly eclectic including everything from west coast hip hop to neo soul down south trap 808 beats to heavy electric guitar with brilliant drums and percussions. Inspirations vary from likes of FKA Twigs, Banks, SOHN, Vallis Alps, The Internet, The Jackson’s MJ and Janet, OutKast, Janelle Monae, Erykah Badu, Frank Ocean, Ishmael Butler of Shabazz Palaces, and more.

Reyshard’s experience covers lots of artistic spectrum and his confidence has brought him to this point and will inevitably carry him to the next. He has played many festivals as well as night clubs in and out of Seattle. Tokyo Japan has been one of the touring highlights. The Disney Channel has also aired his singing and acting in commercials as well as on the Bill Nye The Science Guy program back in the day. New tours and album projects due out summer 2016.
