For as long as he can remember, Pop/Soul singer Rayvon Owen has dreamed of a life dedicated to music. Born to be on stage, the Richmond, VA native began his music career at a very young age – singing in choirs, touring with gospel musicians and performing in local musicals. Influenced by legendary artists such as Lionel Richie, John Legend, Katy Perry and Stevie Wonder, Rayvon has developed his own voice as a powerful performer and reflective songwriter.
By the age of 18, he relocated to Nashville, TN., to study Commercial Music at Belmont University. While in Music City, he pursued a performance career by writing with local musicians and performing at local events, venues, clubs and showcases. Shortly after graduation, Rayvon made his way from Nashville to Los Angeles, CA., where he continued to write and craft his sound. In 2014, he released his debut EP, “Cycles,” which includes the hit single “Sweatshirt.” In the past year, Rayvon took his talent on the road – performing at over 60 colleges across the United States.
Already having a large fan base across the U.S., he recently became a household name and “Twitter Save” champion as a Top 4 finalist on season 14 of “American Idol.” While on “Idol,” Rayvon performed with the likes of Jamie Foxx, Rickey Martin, Boy George and many others. Receiving rave reviews from major outlets, including People Magazine, USA Today and Billboard, he is noted, not only for his star quality and beautiful vocal tone, but for his ability to bring authenticity and emotion to his performances.
Rayvon will be hitting the road this summer with “American Idol’s” Top 5 finalists on the “American Idols Live!” tour. He wants to entertain his listeners and create an immersive and memorable experience that leaves his audiences inspired.
