Brampton, Ontario Native Rhyan Douglas Releases 'Spin The Block' From Upcoming Debut EP

By Stevie Connor.

Rhyan Douglas is on his way to becoming every tastemakers’ stand out pick, as he continues to beautifully blur the lines of R&B, folk and soul – which he demonstrates again in new single “Spin The Block” . This single is the third from his upcoming EP, CIRCLES, due out March 15. 


 “Maybe I’m selfish; maybe I’m just too blind,” he belts on the Othxello, Eli Brown, MattySpatty & Tarron Crayton produced cut; and it’s here, listeners get to witness and unpack Rhyan’s dynamic range. Rhyan repeatedly affirms his place through his mastery of immersive sonics that draws us in with each release.  From “Last Page” to “Conversations,” and now “Spin The Block,” Douglas pens and creates beyond his years. From his explorations with wispy tonal and snap-led productions to his sultry verses and ethereal falsetto, Rhyan’s blend and mastery of R&B, folk, and soulful sonics, are as if he invented them truly on his own. 


Rhyan Douglas is a uniquely talented singer who hails from the Brampton, Ontario area. He developed his passion for singing at a young age, discovering his true voice growing alongside with the SDA church youth choir; he began to hone his craft, spending countless hours practicing and perfecting his vocals. As his talent began to grow, Rhyan caught the attention of some of the most prominent producers in the industry, including Wondagurl, No-ID, and Eli Brown, to help craft his sound. 

Rhyan’s music is a new genre termed “Folk-soul” that combines elements of folk and soul music, creating a fresh and distinctive sound that sets him apart from other artists. His music has been inspired by a diverse range of musical artists, including Frank Ocean, Thundercat, Sam Smith, Kendrick Lamar, Coldplay, Daniel Caesar, and Tyler The Creator. Past collaborators include DJ Dahi, Jordan Evans, Matthew Burnett, Leon Thomas, Marcus Semaj, Los Hendrixx, and 6LACK.  

Rhyan released his first single “Last Page” in November, which landed on the NOW 89 compilation album, and is looking to drop his 9-song EP titled CIRCLES, executive produced by Wondagurl & Eli Brown. Having already opened on tour for 6LACK, he is currently the cover of “Alt R&B” by the Yams Playlist, even recently providing stripped down versions of his two singles and his own rendition of “His Eyes Are On The Sparrow” for their Yams Sessions.  With opportunities continuing to spotlight his talent, Rhyan is poised to become a major force in the music world.
