Rayhan is a young up-and-coming singer-songwriter out of San Diego, California whose developed a versatility which separates him from other artists. Having begun exploring his talents in the 6th grade, his artistic abilities have grown to encompass a range of musical genres including R&B, Hip-Hop and pop.
Faced with a difficult home life throughout his childhood, Rayhan was forced to find himself in the chaos of overcoming his family’s unique challenges. It was within this internal struggle that he used the combination of sport and music to search for his self-identity.
Passionate and dedicated to his craft, the emerging artist was driven by his former boxing coach Fahness Lutalo, who was tragically shot and killed in 2016. Together, the duo went on a five-match winning spree against top-ranked opponents from all over the United States. It was in training with Fahness where Rayhan learned that he had the drive to master any craft; at which point he directed his focus to pursuing music full-time with the intent of creating songs that capture every emotion.
As an artist, Rayhan channels a variety of different themes to story the highs and lows everyone experiences in life. Influenced by the likes of Jacquees, Bryson Tiller, Tory Lanez and Eric Bellinger, Rayhan has developed a sharpened sense for identifying powerful music. Recording most pieces independently, and frequently traveling all over Southern California to collaborate with experienced producers, the emerging talent has increasingly diversified his skill set.
In 2017, his first mixtape “Jus Trust” – which was self-written, recorded and mixed – was released, making waves across high schools in San Diego and all over the digital and social scene. With his eye for promotion, Rayhan built a name for himself, performing at local venues all across the greater San Diego Valley where audiences continued to fall in love with his sound.
In his view, the emotion felt through music can spread universally; touching lives of all ages and cultures through melodies that feature the familiarity of all genres. Through his passion for music, unique understanding of life and undeniable talent, Rayhan’s music will continue to break new ground.
