This year is Culture Hypes first Hypefest! While you are there you will be able to see Remy Reilly perform, a 14 year old singer/songwriter from North Texas that has a very mature and soulful voice.

Remy discovered her love for music at the age of 11 by taking drum lessons and had her first performance at the age of 12. This propelled her into pursuing music more seriously.

It's not easy to be a singer/songwriter at a young age but Remy makes it look effortless as she is creating catchy songs that are being played on the radio. She overcomes adversity and that’s what makes her special.

“Becoming an artist at this age gives me the opportunity to practice my craft and dedicate more time to writing,” she tells us. “It also makes me want to inspire more young people to do what they love. That you can do anything you want at any age.”

As a child, Remy was musically influenced by her parents. Her mom introduced her to hip-hop and R&B and her dad showed her rock. She said she listened to The Cure, ZZ Ward, and Billy Joel.
Now, Remy’s music has an impact on people and her voice influences others. She hopes to show her fans that they have the ability to “Do whatever it is they are into. That they can pursue their dreams at any age, and to just have fun.”

In the next couple of years, Remy wants to have a band, open for bigger artists, and drop a new EP. She can definitely reach those goals because she is persistent, disciplined and ambitious.

HypeFest gives an opportunity for Dallas’s artists to come together and celebrate all kinds of music. It will be a fun place for people to come and relax, eat and enjoy good music. Remy thinks “having all the creatives of Dallas in one festival gives a good chance at networking and meeting new people not only in the arts but in other industries too.”

This rising star is someone to look out for as she grows as an artist and makes more music. Remy will be performing Saturday afternoon on June 16th along with an amazing lineup of Dallas artists. Come check her out at Hype Fest 2018. To connect with Remy you can follow her on Facebook or if want to listen to her music you can go to Spotify!#GetHyped#HypeFest18#CultureHypeArtists.
