Rhys Langston is a vocalist, producer, and multi-disciplinary artist born, raised, and based in Los Angeles, CA. Live in concert and recorded, his works are available in high-definition stereo and full-frontal honesty. The former, his performance ability, sees a junction between beat-based music, stand-up comedy, and avant-garde poetry. His studio work relishes in its (mostly) self-produced-and-contained polish, with songs' concepts and sounds ranging from crooning ballads about a relationship's MSRP to post-Migos lamentations on microaggressions, unemployment, and post-grad blues.
Consequently, he has earned the kind praises of AFROPUNK, Passion of the Weiss, LA Weekly (pre-buyout), TinyMixtapes, LA Record Magazine, EARMILK, and other respectable outlets.
He remains the poet laureate of his living room, and has a higher vertical leap than your favorite rapper.
