Playryte is a veteran musician who has been playing piano and keys with a number of bands and musical projects over the past decade. The Henderson, Kentucky musician is an eclectic player with a genre-fluid sound. He made his international professional solo recording debut in 2023.
Citing the inspiration of ground-breaking artists like Julian Casablancas, Jean Dawson, 070 Shake, and Mac Demarco, Playryte creates a unique alt-pop vibe that blends elements of pop, rock, and hip-hop. He says he was motivated to launch the new solo project to fill a creative void he sees in modern popular music. The producer reaches for a more organic vibe by creating all of his own sounds and samples.
“Make You Dance” is the debut single from Playryte, released worldwide via all major streaming services on October 31, 2023. Dark ambient synths and a sawtooth bass open the track, riding a downtempo live drum groove. The singer steps to the mic and offers a melodic manifesto of an independent musician. As the track progresses it evolves into a funky lo-fi freeform acid jazz jam.
