Tryzdin Grubbs is an American singer / songwriter. He born in 2004 in Columbus (Ohio, USA). Tryzdin is one of a rare breed of young, talented professional artists. He takes his craft very seriously. While most teens are hanging out with their cell phones he is in his studios recording original music
In 2016, a YouTube video of him performing "Hello" by Adele caused a sensation. It has been seen, all media combined, more than 300 million times, winning him glamorous press articles in the media (Foxnews, Daily Mirror, Huffington Post, RFM, etc.) and invitations on national television channels, including NBC 4 and Fox News, for which he performed live on the "Fox and Friends News" show at prime time.
In 2017, Tryzdin was spotted on Youtube by Cedric Aegerter (a.k.a Marc Darcange), of the band Saint Mars, from Bristol (UK). The band, featuring prestigious musicians such as the guitarist of the legendary Trip-Hop collective Massive Attack (Angelo Bruschini), released a first EP in early 2017, to great critical acclaim, some even claiming it was the « most promising alternative rock band to come out of the U.K. for some time ».
The first single and video of the band featuring Tryzdin, “Somewhere Sombebody”, was realeased in April 2018. It was received in the press with rave reviews (https://www.saintmars.net/press) and already gained more than 100’000 views on Youtube.
« Since we were writing our first concept album about bullying » Cedric says, « I felt the need to find a young singer who could give credibility to the album. That young singer was supposed to play the boy bullied by his classmates. The problem is that I couldn’t find anybody I lived and I got pretty despaired. So...one day I started to search on Youtube. And the first one I found was a 11-year old boy with a weird name, Tryzdin, singing « Hello » and “The One and Only” by Adele....and something happened; I don’t know exactly what, but Tryzdin triggered something in me and I felt that he was the only one I would ever need. »
Tryzdin and his family traveled to Switzerland in August where he filmed to music videos with the band Saint Mars.
Tryzdin became part of the STARS program in 2018 when Cedric was looking for someone in the USA to help Tryzdin with artist development. Tryzdin rapidly became a popular member of STARS as well as an audience favorite performing Stevie Wonder’s “Superstition” during our STARS Motown Tribute.
