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 his band are incredible artists that made our evening one of the most enjoyable customer events that we have had in the last ten years!
I searched and searched for someone to perform at my wedding at my home on 12/29/18. I am so glad I found Aryk Crowder. We spoke on the phone several times prior the event, mostly because he wanted to make sure that he provided everything we would need to make the event great. Aryk thought of details that I hadn't even considered, which was a tremendous help in planning the flow of the evening. I requested two specific songs that I wanted performed prior to and following the actually ceremony, and he nailed both of them - they were absolutely beautiful. Aryk asked if I had a preference as to the type of music I wanted to have him perform that evening, and I told him that I trusted him to make that decision - the mix was amazing. Honestly, I still have people who attended the wedding commenting on how much they enjoyed Aryk's music. Aryk is extremely friendly and personable, and I would not hesitate to recommend him to anyone looking to host a perfect day or evening event.
Aryk performed for our Store Grand Opening, and he was Perfect!!! He arrived on time and was set up and ready to go before the scheduled time. He played for 4 hours and kept the crowd entertained with a great variety of songs. I would highly recommend Aryk for your next event!
Just what we needed for our memorial service.
Aryk made a great night, even better. He put his touch on a classic song that made the surprise one we will cherish and never forget. My girlfriend, now fiancé was so moved, and I barely held it together. It could not have been better and Aryk Crowder is an amazingly talented performer.
Aryk knew how to read the mood of our party!! My husband's 50 year old celebration was a hit, and yes, Aryk gets a lot of the credit!! Everyone loved his performance and music repertoire.
Highly recommend him, if you want to have a laid back, happy, fresh and fun entertainer!!
Aryk was key in helping me propose to my GF. He came with ideas, was flexible, on time and communicated very clearly. A great musician and professional all around. Highly recommend!
Aryk was such a perfect addition to our party. He has an incredible voice and his music was soulful and chill, which really suited the event. Also he was super accommodating as the power shut down in our Neighbourhood and he had to start his set without a microphone! Very pleasant and easy going. I would highly recommend him!!
We booked Aryk for a company sales event on Catalina Island and had Aryk play while we had dinner.
EVERYONE commented how much they enjoyed his music and the unique covers of some popular songs.
Aryk was easy to work with and very professional. Highly recommend him!
Response from Aryk Crowder:
Idalia and her crew were wonderful to work with. Very accommodating and all details of the event went smoothly. It was a pleasure to be able to play for them.
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 200 people.
