How do you get from humming under the shower to number one of international music charts, radios, music tv etc. ? For the singer and songwriter from the small town Wedemark by Hanover of Germany, this journey literarily began shortly after that he began his learning years as the frontman of a cover-band and by taking singing lessons.
In 2006 he gains, as one out of three among hundreds of candidates, one of the wanted places at the singers-academy “Studio of Young Artists” (SoYA) in Hamburg. It was there that he attracted the attention of the producers Gerry Williams (Eruption) and Uwe Friedrich (Platina Music) and in 2008 Eric released his debut single “Long Ago...” (debut album "Supernatural" one year later) which held high positions at the former European wide TV Channel “iMusic 1 TV” among others. In 2011 the singer makes an excursion into the genre of house-music and “Like I Do” turns into an evergreen on many dance-floors.
With a cover-version of the Phil Collins song “Do You Remember” Eric, since his childhood a loyal fan of the musician, makes a personal dream come true. Especially because Sascha “Busy” Bühren, who had already worked for Phil Collins by remixing “In The Air Tonight” for a Lil’ Kim feat. Phil Collins version, mixed and mastered the song for Eric - while Eric instrumented the entire song by himself.
In the summer of 2014 Rylee decided to record another album. In order to establish his very clear musical intent, he gets support by the multiple platinum and gold award winning producer Marco Heggen (Marquess), Gottfried Koch and Ilyas Mokhlis. This is how the songs for the album “Adventure”, which has won the U.S. "Akademia Music Award" with the singles; “I Feel Good”, “Spread Love” and “I’m So Done”, came into place.
Now (2022) the third, and also the artist's most personal album is in the works.
For the upcoming record Eric wrote all lyrics and also composed all vocal melodies by himself. On the musical side Eric got support by producer Sebastian Lang (Lou Bega, Unheilig, Queensberry and many others) and mastering luminary Ludwig Maier (Ray Wilson, formerly Genesis, Kelvyn Colt, Nada Surf and many others).
In summer 2019 the first single release "Fly" sails on number one of the pop music charts in the Netherlands / Holland and in Belgium for over two weeks. Furthermore the song lands on 21 in Germany, 27 in Canada and top 100 and 200 in other countries. With "Fly" Eric wants to motivate and encourage people to (re)discover their own highest potential.
With his charisma, the multi-faceted up coming album, his distinctive and heartful voice, the singer awakens true emotions. By this the singer proves his personal creed: “My music is the outer manifestation of my inner light and love." - Eric Rylee
