Mix John Mayer with some John Legend and you have soul singer/songwriter Aryk Crowder. Based out of Los Angeles, Aryk has opened for the likes of Mat Kearney, Yuna, indie giants Red Wanting Blue, and has toured the country from Seattle to NYC.
Whether you want to keep it relaxing for your small, private event, or turn up the energy for your big party, Aryk is available to perform solo acoustic, as a duo, or a full band.
Aryk and a keyboard friend of his performed for my wife's 50th birthday. Before the show he sent a set list for us to choose from and even learned a few of our favorites to add to his set list. The event was mostly a cocktail hour/dinner affair, and he kept the atmosphere lively and classy. He adds an interesting artistic twist to well known songs, but still stays true to the original feel - not always easy to do. Definitely a step up from the standard DJ parties we usually attend.
What to Expect
When performing solo, Aryk presents a multi layered performance. He can accompany himself by looping beats, bass lines and melodies (see the video for "What You Want" to see it in action). Crowds have raved about the full sound presented by his solo performances.
When playing with his full band, Aryk and his crew bring a chemistry to the stage that keeps the crowd engaged, moving, and wanting to sing along.
Hey, Aryk Crowder here! I'm an original singer-songwriter based out of Los Angeles by way of Chicago. My main focus with music is writing and performing original songs, but also really love performing soul, r&b, and pop music. From Prince to Rolling Stones, to Rihanna, I've got you covered in putting on a live show with songs that everyone loves.
Additional Booking Notes
Aryk can provide sound equipment to cover himself or a small acoustic trio for up to 150 people.
