Bio

Jeyhan is a 19-year-old Pop/R&B/Soul singer/songwriter from Leesburg, VA.  Growing up only thirty minutes outside of Washington D.C. allowed for Jeyhan to be exposed to many opportunities in the entertainment industry from a young age.

Jeyhan began acting in short films, TV shows, and commercials in his area.  Some credits include leading roles in TV show Monsters and Mysteries in America (Discovery Channel), a Best Buy promotional shoot, and award-winning film The Fourth Question.

In addition to having a passion for acting, Jeyhan developed a passion for music as well. Music began to shift to Jeyhan’s main focus. Jeyhan has been singing since he was 5-years-old and his love for performing for people since then has only gotten stronger. As Jeyhan grew as a singer, he really began to understand the certain style that he enjoyed singing in most and sounded best when singing in. Jeyhan’s genre is mainly R&B/Soul and Pop. His main musical influences are Beyoncé, Whitney Houston, Mariah Carey, Stevie Wonder, and Michael Jackson. Once discovering his musical interests more deeply, Jeyhan began to take voice lessons to further his craft. Improving his technique has helped to make Jeyhan’s voice a stand-out from other guys his age due to its maturity, strength, and versatility. His voice has been compared to those of John Legend and Sam Smith. Once reaching a significant level of vocal improvement, Jeyhan began to perform at various events and venues to get the most experience he could and to raise his confidence level when performing in front of large crowds. Some of the places he has performed at are the World Music and Independent Film Festival, the Miss Intercontinental Pageant, CureFest, and in a televised performance in front of a crowd of thousands in the National Cherry Blossom Parade in Washington D.C.

Performing in front of different types of crowds and receiving acclaim for his unique voice gave Jeyhan the confidence to venture out into writing original music.  Jeyhan co-wrote and professionally recorded his first single, “Own It,” with Big Yellow Dog songwriter/producer Alexi Von Guggenberg. Working with someone who is signed to the same music publishing label as Meghan Trainor was an amazing opportunity for Jeyhan.  Jeyhan released “Own It” to iTunes, Amazon, Google Play, Spotify, Tidal, Pandora, and many other music sites in the winter of 2015 along with an official music video for the song to his YouTube channel.  Jeyhan received rave reviews for “Own It” and the accompanying music video from his fans and immediately got right back into the studio to work on more music. As of now, Jeyhan has released five singles and one EP consisting of five songs (available on all music platforms). Jeyhan is ready to take the music world by storm!

Shortened Version

Jeyhan is an R&B/soul-influenced pop artist from the Washington D.C. area. His voice has been described as the love child of Sam Smith and Bruno Mars whose extraordinary grandparents are Mariah Carey and Stevie Wonder (special thanks to my sister for helping me come up with that lol). With a voice like his, Jeyhan distinguishes himself as the powerhouse male vocalist that pop music needs more of right now. 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.
