As a first-generation Turkish American, JEYHAN has heartilty injected his roots into his brand of RnB. These influences can be heard in his newest release ‘None Of That’ which is a striking single, and his second of 2020. JEYHAN will be donating all funds raised in the first month of release to the Movement For Black Lives Coalition and The Centre For Black Equity.
Discussing the causes, JEYHAN explains:
“As a musician, I acknowledge the fact that I would not be making music if it weren’t for the brilliant black musicians that paved the way for me and provided the foundation for the music industry to be built upon. Black artists have provided the blueprint for popular music & have influenced major white artists that disproportionately & unjustly run the industry today. Their words & stories were/are stolen & repurposed as the white man’s creation. Enough is enough. I will continue to find ways to highlight issues in our country & world and to do my part every day. If “None of That” can make even just one person smile, dance, and/or feel empowered to love themself and live their life on their own terms, then I have done my job. #BlackLivesMatter”
Influenced by Stevie Wonder and Sam Smith, JEYHAN’s diverse listening habits make for plentiful listening. Giving back to communities close to everybody’s hearts, JEYHAN is an all-inspiring artist who looks destined for a big year.
