Countless artists battle to carve, define, or establish their own musical identity. For some, it is a strenuous process of experimenting with various musical styles in an attempt to stumble upon something that fits. What’s apparent about Jamaican born British artist Adreyn Cash is that he is an artist that is fully aware of his musical identity and naturally in command of it. With routes within soul music, his sound consists of a smooth mixture of emotion and perhaps even fear, projecting an alternative style: dark but by no means depressing. “I create music that people can listen to and relate to while reaching out to the person within. The one whom we hide from the masses. My music is the voice for the hidden us.” says Adreyn.
From the age of 16, he started taking his musical passion seriously and flourished at an array of events and opportunities. Championing renditions of songs such as Ordinary People by John Legend at weddings, birthdays, and secondary school performances that on one occasion included the Mayor and Mayoress of the London Borough of Bromley. Excitement for him as a musician was growing. The belief was that “Once he gets into the industry, there will be no stopping him” said the Mayor.
Early career highlights include performances at the Indig02 in December 2009. In 2018 Adreyn released his single Angel’s Lie which premiered on BBC 1Xtra with further support from Reprezent Radio, Elicit Magazine and Link Up TV. The 8-track EP was co-produced by Adreyn alongside Nutty P (Ghetts, Shakka, and Professor Green) and others. 169, whose production credits include working with the likes of Drake, Craig David, and Stormzy, and rising producers Jamal Woon (Wiley, Bonkaz, A2), Shaun Barratt, and Farr Musics Linden Berelowitz, with all songs on the seminal project, written by Adreyn.
Cash is currently working on his next studio album ‘Rich Girls Don’t Marry Poor Boys’
