Internet Star And Nashville Recording Artist, Jadyn Rylee

Exceptional things happen, to exceptional people, this happens to be a true fact, when talking about Jadyn. Already at her young age, she has an understanding of songs, that many people unfortunately never get. You wouldn’t think someone of her age would have the delivery, and  perception of songs, that is found and understood in her performances, but they are. The way she sings, is that of a much older and seasoned artist, but yet here she is stunning people with every song at just eleven years old. Jadyn, and the way she performs a song, has become an infection on the internet. She has gained internet stardom.

Jadyn’s fame, and audience grows larger by the day, with her videos reaching into the millions. One of these songs that has gotten a great deal of attention is, The Sound of Silence. This video has soared to well over four million in just barely three months. Her delivery of the song has a dark and haunting vibe to her voice, and people has gone crazy over it. Jadyn really liked this song. “The song was so deep and loud, it was fun trying to learn it” says Jadyn. Jadyn has been doing projects with Sina, and it was Sina’s dad Mike Wilbury and Rick Benbow who chose the song, The Sound of Silence. They felt people would love it, and they did in a big way. 

Jadyn and Sina make a good team. Jadyn says she’s glad they found each other. “She is helpful with ideas and her drumming in our songs” says Jadyn. Currently they have three recordings together, The Sound of Silence, Nothing Else Matters, and Go Your Own Way. Plans to work on more videos together, is in the works. Jadyn hopes they will start working on something soon. 

In June, Jadyn packed up and headed out to Nashville to write and record her very own songs. In Nashville she worked with legendary writer and guitarist Curt Ryle of Big Matador Records. While there they wrote three songs, and she loved the experience. “The experience was amazing because I have never had the chance to work with anyone who helped me write songs before, and I can’t believe we wrote three” Jadyn says. 

Her newest release is one of the songs written and recorded in Nashville called, Don’t Judge A Book By Its Cover. This is an anti-bullying song, and it was important to her to write. “I wanted to write a song that touched people and a song that kids could look up to, especially if they had been bullied before” says Jadyn. She has been bullied herself, but not as bad as some of her friends. She wanted to let her friends and everyone to see that bullying wasn’t alright and shouldn’t be allow. “We are all human and supposed to be equal and no one deserves to be hurt like that” says Jadyn.  She hopes to do more songs like that in the future. The song has a lot of meaning that sends out a good message, and her delivery of it is unbelievable. Brilliant!

Another song they wrote is called, Virtual Reality. The song is fun and bouncy and makes you want to dance. It also mentions Arianna Grande and Jadyn hopes one day Arianna will hear it. The song is about being a kid and enjoying life. Everyone will love this song. For now her third song will remain under wraps, but I can tell you, it’s going to blow your mind. 

Writing with Curt was amazing, she says. “He helped me write the lyrics, and then recorded his guitar for all of the songs. It was so much fun” says Jadyn. While in Nashville writing with Curt they stayed at his home, and something clicked with the two of them that created a good bond. Curt was amazed at the things she was able to do in the studio, and one of the things was how high she could sing. He teasingly nicknamed her, Little Freak. “The funniest part about recording in Nashville was when we would get ready to record we would first have breakfast and then go down to the studio, every morning Curt would say “Well good morning little freak” it was so funny” Jadyn says. She can’t wait to go back. On all of her recordings, she sang all of the harmonies, and Curt said he had never met anyone who could do harmonies as well as Jadyn. 

Music means the world to her and loves every aspect of it. Jadyn has met and worked with a lot of amazing people, Curt, Mike, Rick, Sina, and Andre she loves them all. She loves her singing coach as well, Sarah Hyde. “Sarah has taught me so much and has always told me that I can do this and I do it well” says Jadyn. Her coach is correct, she can do and does it well. 

Jadyn is an exceptional person in the way she grasps lyrics, and creativity she puts in her songs. She has become well known, but not just who she is, but the way she sings a song. The people that follow her music are loyal listeners and can’t wait for a new song. With all she has accomplished in just a short time, it is obvious she will become larger than life. The world audience loves her. 

Teen Nation Tour 2013

Teen Nation Tour 2013

Teen Nation Tour 2013  is going to be an outstanding tour with seven great artists. This tour is slated to be even bigger and better than the Country, Pop, Rock Tour, and it was amazing! Teen Nation Tour will make its first stop on 04/19/2013 in Milford Delaware featuring, Drew Logan, Karoline Rhett, Beamer Wigley, Maria Diebolt, and Matthew Pinkham, with two great headliners, Riley Roth and Tristan Blaine. Riley and Tristan got their feet wet with the CPR Tour, and were a smash in every town.

The Teen Nation Tour like the CPR Tour is made up of a group of kids that are out to help bring an end to bullying, and to let others know that they are “NOT” alone. TNT will stop at many schools, along with several red carpet events to bring hope and encouragement at every stop.  All seven of these great artists has been a victim of bullying and as hurtful as that is they have all gained the strength and courage to over come the hate.  They have all discovered that it is ok to be “YOU” and that is who you should always be. Everyone is special in his or her own way; for some it may be dancing, music, or even collecting leaves, or just a small person; no one should try to change who you are, and you do not have to face these challenges alone. For these artists they have found a great outlet to help themselves deal with bullying and that is music.

Teen Nation Tour 2013 at stars2comeOn this tour you can expect some great pop and country music. The concerts on this tour is very high energy and will keep the crowd roaring all the way through. They are currently booked for 24 schools and red carpet events. At each stop they will perform at schools in the morning hours, with the red carpet events in the evenings. At each school they will perform and talk about bullying, and it is encouraged that the students share their experiences with the artists. At the red carpet events the kids can get their photos taken with the stars on the red carpet. Once the concert starts the kids will be highly entertained from beginning to end, and so will the adults. The shows these artists put on are some of the best you will ever attend anywhere. After the show there will autograph signing, and more photos with the artists.  Speaking from personal experience, these concerts are a blast.

There are five new faces to these tours and they are all very excited to be heading out very soon and a few wanted to share their views about the up coming tour and their experiences with bullying. One thing they are looking forward to the most is being able to meet and hang out with other kids who loves music. These three artists Matthew, Beamer, and Karoline were all asked the same questions, what the tour means to you and how you feel about it; and what experience have you had with bullying. They will tell you in their own words.

Matthew Pinkham:  . I’m PUMPED to be going on this tour! I wish I was home-schooled so I could do it more often! There are two things that I am most excited about by doing this tour… first of all, getting to build a bigger fan base and show 23 schools full of other kids who I am and that whether you have an illness as I did or if you are the shortest kid your age, LIFE goes on and you have to make the best of it! I am also so pumped because I get to spend 3 weeks with kids on the tour that understand and “get” music. I don’t really have any friends that do anything like this so to spend so much time together, sharing the stage and sharing our talent is going to be AWESOME!

Yes, I have been bullied! I get picked on all of the time because I am so small. When I say small, I am meaning that I am only in the 1.7% in the NATION when it comes to height. I’ll do the math for you… That means that 98.3 people out of 100 are taller than me my age. Out of 1,000 kids my age, there are 983 that are taller than me. I love sports and I am BY FAR always THE shortest player on the court at all times. I have gobs of friends but I guess it’s always funny to pick on the small kid!?! Believe it or not, I also get made fun of because I play music, and my skinny jeans! But hey, I’m totally comfortable with who I am and what I do! I want to tell kids…both the bullies and the bullied that first of all, NEVER judge a book by its cover and you can’t judge someone until you walk in their shoes (which is probably NEVER going to happen)! I have chosen Taylor Swift’s MEAN to perform because it’s like an anthem to me. I live this “Hannah Montana” life where I am just Matthew at school and on the weekends, I get to perform…and they can pick at me all they want but usually the kids picking at me have some kind of security issues and hopefully like Taylor Swift, “SOME DAY I’LL BE…LIVING IN A BIG OL CITY…AND ALL YOU ARE EVER GONNA BE IS MEAN”… Yea…

Beamer Wigley: On this tour, I’m really looking forward to interacting with the other musicians and making people smile!

Yes, I have been bullied. It’s one of the reasons I am home schooled now. I even wrote some songs about it and one is called My Calvary which got a lot of attention here locally in the newspaper. I’ve recorded it several times. What I have to say about bullying is it is really often the bullies who probably were bullied themselves and they should think about how they felt and how they are making others feel. Then maybe they would stop. It hurts so many kids and I would like to see it stop. Hopefully this tour will help kids who are being bullied and make the bullies think about what they are doing. But I am very excited to do this tour. It will be a great experience and a lot of fun.

Karoline Rhett: I am looking forward to going out everyday and doing what I love most and that is to sing and perform. I am really excited about touring with Tristan, Riley, Maria, Beamer, Drew and Matthew.  I couldn’t ask for a better group of artist to tour with.  This tour is gonna ROCK!

I really love the message behind this tour and that is to STOP bullying.  I have been bullied myself and know how it feels.  I am very passionate about this subject and am honored to be able to go out and spread the word.

This was only three of the artists going on this tour, but they have all experienced bullying and unfortunately many continue to be. Bullying needs to come to an end, and these seven artists are doing their part to help stop it.  Never be afraid to ask for help, and you can always reach out to any of these artists, they will be there for you. These shows will run from 04/19/2013 to 05/03/2013 stopping in Delaware, Maryland and South Carolina. If you live anywhere close to these stops be sure and take your kids out to see them, enjoy one of the best concerts ever and help bring an end to bullying.
