Which steps do you take from the little town Wedemark at Hanover of Germany into the radio, into “MTV”, into music charts … - shortly; into the music business? For the meanwhile international singer and songwriter Eric Rylee, who is now based in Hamburg and London, this journey literarily began under the shower. Like many others he enjoyed humming there and that is how he discovered his pleasure in singing. 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 they released the single “Long Ago...” which held top positions at the former European wide TV Channel “iMusic 1 TV” for months. 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 he co-operated with Sascha “Busy” Bühren, who had already worked for Phil Collins by remixing “In The Air Tonight” for a Lil’ Kim feat. Phil Collins version.
In the summer of 2014 Rylee decides to record his new 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 already has won the newcomer "Akademia Music Award" with the singles; “I Feel Good”, “Spread Love” and “I’m So Done”, came into place.
Now (2019) the third, and also the artist's most personal album is in the starting blocks.
For the upcoming record Eric wrote all the lyrics and also composed the vocal melodies. 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).
The first single release "Fly" hits the charts peak in the Netherlands / Holland and in Belgium in July 2019 and lands on number one of the iTunes Downloads Charts for over two weeks. Furthermore, “Fly” sails on 21 in Germany, 27 in Canada and top 100 in several countries around the globe. With this single Eric motivates and encourages listeners to (re)discover their own highest potential.
With this hit song, his charisma, the multi-faceted coming album, with his distinctive yet soulful voice, the singer awakens the very big feelings. By this the singer proves his personal creed: “My music is the outer manifestation of my inner light and love.”
The new album will be released in fall 2019 / spring 2020.
