Edgy, eclectic, and expressive are a few of many words to describe Rapper/Songwriter, SCHUY. At just 24 years old, the Fort Worth, TX native’s confident and bold records coupled with her high-energy performance transmutes a vibe that leaves audiences entranced.
Losing her father early in her childhood pushed SCHUY to root in the performing arts space, introducing her to the process and power of release through music and movement. Remaining most evident in her music is her intuitive storytelling. Her involvement in the theatre and spoken word influences her approach to creating unique melodies, lyrics, characters, and storylines - often embodying them throughout the creative process.
The experiences that have followed her from Texas to Atlanta are woven into her concepts and visuals which scream notes of whimsy, curiosity, expansion, self-awareness, and conquering conflict. Her multi-layered performances have been recognized and embraced by her community through platforms such as All My Friends Atlanta, Carefree Black Girl Cookout Tour, Hood Colors TV, and The Lyrik London Project. SCHUY aims to continue amplifying intentional messages through her music.
