WELL, my name is Drew Ryn. My music career started out when I was top 6 XFactor.

I love to bring people together through music and I can’t imagine life any other way.

How did you end up where you are in life right now?

If you can imagine the most down to earth, tiny town in the middle of Northern Arizona, with a teenager who’d only ever made friends in her private school. Then you can picture life for me before being on national television.

My dream at the time was to sing for Simon Cowell, perform with Justin Bieber, and become a musician before the worlds eyes. All of which I had accomplished in the matter of 3 months. I have since, worked with hundreds of big producers, legends like Babyface, and writers who get the deepest parts of my soul.

What’s been your proudest moment to date?

I’m most proud of the anti bullying work I do, because coming off of national television I was swarmed with thousands of opinions about me. I love public speaking , and have done hundreds of shows performing and speaking on bullying. Something else I'm pretty proud of is being mentioned in a few books by some incredible authors like Duane Cummings who wrote The Sensational Salesman.

Who or what would you cite as your biggest inspiration?

Musically I'm inspired by people like Celine Dion, Prince, Carole King and so many others. In my life I’m often just inspired by people I meet. The people who have incredible stories, are the people I treasure most.

What’s on your playlist right now?

Almost Famous- Noah Cyrus has been on repeat!!

I’ve also been listening to Boom- Tiesto and Sevenn. Since I write a lot of EDM music, that song gets me in the right headspace.

Describe your style in three words…

If you could collab on an album with any 3 artists, dead or alive, who would you pick?

I’d love to collab with some more Dj’s like Tiesto, or Major Lazer.

My dream collab performance would be with Celine Dion.

Tell us a random fact about yourself…

My longterm boyfriend is..MY MANAGER.. LOL! Or should I say my longterm manager became my boyfriend?

If you were a mood ring, what colour would you be?

Black. For aesthetic reasons.

What are you most looking forward to in 2017?

I should be finishing up my album this year, and then next year there are some HUGE things in store.
