Times are changing fast for Hylynd as his musical career goes from strength to strength. This saw him only signing contracts and deals with several agencies in the last two years. The non-exclusivity of these deals has enabled him to spread his talents wide and far, joining up to work with some well-known production agencies worldwide. These include Sonata in London, England, 411 musical group in Los Angeles, and stretching as far as working with Audio music group in Nashville.
Hylynd's musical career began in North Carolina, where he grew up surrounded by bluegrass and country music. However, he quickly developed a love for pop music and began writing his own songs. After moving to Texas, he started to experiment with different genres and began incorporating elements of rock and country into his sound. This experimentation led to the dark pop single 'Boys of Summer', which is an emotional tale about a love story. The song demonstrates the power of love even in cases where it's less than deserved. Hylynd's unique blend of genres and his emotional storytelling have made him a rising star in the music industry, and 'Boys of Summer' is proof of his immense talent.
Spreading himself wide has by no means diluted his quality or dedication, and his efforts do not go unnoticed or unrewarded. Hylynd's moment came when his 1982 Marvin Gaye classic was featured by Sony as 'Falcon Mixtapes- motor city classix'. A perfect combination of both retro and modern, combining worlds and eras through musical expression, something Hylynd seems to do almost effortlessly.
Of course, given his talent and musical success, Hylynd does not plan to stop there, and his online following has grown to a whopping 50 thousand a month. This shows that his fan base is not going anywhere any time soon. His next piece, which is being co-produced with Grammy Nominated King Michael Coy, is bound to be another musical success, which his forever-growing fan base can attest to.
