RABYT

An animal from outer space trying to get out the sounds in her head
We all know that you won't ever understand, we're broken anthem super fans!
lyrics from The Noise

RABYT grew up on the shores of Lake Erie in the small town of Painesville, Ohio (Yes, "Pains-ville", which resides on the outskirts of Cleveland). At age 10, she received a guitar from her dad, a preacher, learning to strum and sing by watching him. She soon started performing for his choir and congregation and at 15, auditioned for and secured a place with the Cleveland Orchestra Youth Choir.

With 4 years of classical music performance now under her belt, RABYT began creating cover demos of popular radio songs and originals. With her unheard tunes, Dad's acoustic, and 200 dollars in her pocket, she moved to New York City. Living in Brooklyn, she played many historic venues such as the Mercury Lounge, The Living Room, and Andrew W.K.'s Santos Party House - Performing both as a solo artist and fronting her own punk band "The Bleeding Bombshells".

While singing karaoke at a local club, she was heard by a friend of "The All-American Rejects" and became the band's back-up singer. She performed on Jimmy Fallon and The Today Show Concert Series to a million plus viewers. She then went on to write and perform songs for two major motion pictures and showcased as a solo act for Universal Republic. RABYT's debut EP "THE NOISE" was produced by Lincoln Parish ("Cage the Elephant") and recorded in Nashville.
