Jeyhan is an R&B/soul-influenced pop artist from the Washington D.C. area whose voice has been described as the love child of Sam Smith, Stevie Wonder, and Prince. With a voice like his, Jeyhan distinguishes himself as the powerhouse male vocalist that pop music needs more of right now.
Jeyhan grew up in a large (and very loud) Turkish family in Rochester, New York and was raised by his parents Serhat and Derya Turker. Music and entertainment has always been a significant part of Jeyhan’s life as every member of his family is an advocate for nightly dance parties and album listening sessions. Growing up, Jeyhan’s sister, parents, cousins, aunts, uncles, and even grandmother, spent what seemed like every single night learning the dances to the newest Destiny’s Child video or singing along to Tarkan’s latest album. Jeyhan attributes much of his musical interest to his family’s appreciation for the arts.
As a first generation Turkish-American, he has learned from his family that a strong work ethic leads to success and embracing individuality is crucial in fighting for one’s voice to be heard. In simplest terms, Jeyhan is an entertainer that, through his music, urges people to champion diversity, encourage transparency, and love deeply.
