"i find it very ironic and poetic, in a way, to make distorted music digitally. using a computer to make music means it can be as crystal clear and as perfect as you want. some say that is why there's been a surging gravitation towards vinyl and cassette, because its flawed.

"Sometimes we get stuck thinking about what we don't have, instead of seeing the beauty in our current situation. The power and empowerment of saying "no" and the freedom it comes with; particularly when we're donating more emotional energy than we're depositing.
Alt-Hip-Pop artist, TeawhYB (T-Y-B), represents a brand of authenticity and ultimate connectivity, providing heartfelt commentary centered on self-actualization, celebration, and sorrow over guitars, synths, and drum kits.
Originating from Green Bay, WI and formerly noted for his college-life, party-induced sound, TeawhYB took a hiatus from a budding music career while coming to terms with his personal identity. He has since redirected his auditory creativity, mending his past, present, and future.
“Being aware of your identity is much different than accepting it. In high school I was a freestyle rapper-jock and was outted. At the time I didn't identify with what I perceived to be gay culture so part of my mission is to show being queer doesn't have to be stereotypical, it just has to be unequivocally you. Once I was finally comfortable in my own skin everything started clicking musically. I was never in choir or band class, so the only thing I know about music is what I feel.”
Selected as an official artist of SXSW 2020, TeawhYB released his debut EP, What We Were, a blend of nostalgic early 2000s pop-punk and modern Top-40 Rap, in an all-too-real tale characterizing the ambiguity of hook-up and dating culture.
