17-Year-old Recording Artist TYLAN Releases Music Video (Quarantine Version) for His Top 30 R&B Single, “FEEL THIS WAY” featuring Ronnie DeVoe
Tylan’s album is a coming of age story we are all familiar with, and that everyone can relate to. The world desperately needs this kind of music again. A type of music that inspires love and gives hope. This is the next generation of soul. This is, The Future of Music.
Tylan bursted onto the music scene last year with a sound all his own and described by music industry insiders as soulful R&B with a hint of trap. His music is reflective and has broad appeal to younger and more mature audiences. The straight A student is also the star basketball player at his high school. Tylan was born and raised in Washington, DC., known for turning out major music industry giants and its love for the artist community. He grew up singing in the church and discovered he had a unique ability to captivate people through his music.
“I want my songs to reach the depth of people’s souls. I want to sing and write music that relate to everyone’s experience and transport them to a place of love.”
Although Tylan is only 16 years old he has been very methodical and intentional about the music he puts into the atmosphere. He is eager to learn how to elevate his craft and wants to collaborate with musicians that not only share his passion, but that he can learn from. Tylan just collaborated with multi-platinum and multi-award winning recording artist, Wale. Unlike many artists who struggle to find their identity, Tylan seems to possess an innate sense of self and purpose through his music. He has an eclectic and diverse combination of musical influences that has undoubtedly molded him into the performing artist he is today. He gives credit to musical geniuses such as Michael Jackson, Usher, Boys II Men, Ne-Yo, and admits that old school music has played a significant role in defining his sound.
Later this summer, Tylan will be releasing his debut EP. He is currently enjoying the early success of his new single, “Feel This Way” featuring Ronnie DeVoe.
The “Feel This Way” (Quarantine Version) of the music video was directed by Tylan and Ken Frances. “I love the video” mentions Tylan. “Starring in and co-directing this video was one of my highlights during this quarantine. I’m showing that relationships can still last even through the quarantine. It’s definitely tough not being able to see your significant other face-to-face, but that’s why we’re blessed to have technology,” he adds with a chuckle.
“Feel This Way” was written by multi-award winning singer-songwriter, RL and produced by B-Flat and RL. “I am just thankful and honored to have been able to record this classic song and add a new twist to it,” mentions Tylan. “Because of my mom’s love for New Edition, I thought it would be cool to be able to pay homage to one of the greatest groups of all times and to be able to release it on my mom’s birthday, was just the best gift ever from me to her,” he adds.
