Meet Ryn

Today we’d like to introduce you to Ryn.

Hi Ryn, so excited to have you with us today. What can you tell us about your story?
Well I was always into the arts growing up, from writing to fashion, dance and music. I always pushed myself creatively to try new things. Straight out of high school, I got a full-time job for a year to save up and move from STL to LA to pursue dance. I’ve been doing just that for the past 4 years and have had the opportunity to work with so many of my favorite artists; Toni Braxton, Meek Mill, Key Glock, etc.

While I do love dance, I always have loved music. The power it holds is really magical. I found my love for poetry and writing around the 3rd grade and it’s something I’ve kept dear to myself. However I’ve had some opportunities to do artists development for a few artists and in the process of helping them be more comfortable performing I became more comfortable in my own artistry so almost two years ago, I decided to drop a freestyle (rapping) on my Instagram and the rest has been history. I’ve spent the last year making an official transition from dancer to artist.

Can you talk to us a bit about the challenges and lessons you’ve learned along the way. Looking back would you say it’s been easy or smooth in retrospect?
Yes! Definitely hasn’t been smooth, my biggest struggle for a while was finding balance between working enough hours to sustain living out here and still being in the dance community enough to really start networking and making somewhat of a name for myself.

Two years ago, I’d say it was officially letting dance (in the sense of being a “dancer”) go and really committing myself to music.

Thanks – so what else should our readers know about your work and what you’re currently focused on?
Well my name is Ryn, formerly known as Money. I’m an Artist from St. Louis, Mo. Right now I’m super focused on dropping a bunch of new songs, visuals, and I actually have a couple big features on the way! I pride myself on being authentic and I feel like what sets me apart from others in the game right now is my sound, music content/subject, my “look” and the fact that I write all of my stuff!

How do you think about happiness?
Honestly when I’m performing, I’m at my happiest, I don’t know how else to describe the feeling other than it just feels right. Being on stage. I feel like if you’ve felt “that” feeling you know what I’m talking about and there’s genuinely no other feeling like that. Being on stage, doing what I love is my happy place.
