Tunes By Shy Is Making Bold Moves
Written By: Jessica Oh
Introducing the new Hip Hop artist to the stage: Tunes By Shy! His unique name came from him creating an acronym for himself. Shy stands for sincere, humble, and youth-hearted, and he lives by his name as he hopes to bring back the feeling of soul and free emotion. This new and passionate artist released his first project last year after witnessing the death of George Floyd online.
When asked what his vision was on how to connect with audiences, Shy said, “I want to place meaningful music and inject my sound into other music with hooks, beats, or lyrics as a producer and songwriter.” Besides music, Shy enjoys meditation, prayer, and writing. This is only the beginning for Tunes By Shy, and we are so excited to see what he has coming next. Learn more about Tunes By Shy below!
