“The music I love can be described as a compilation of a multitude of genres with a focus on pop, alternative & indie music.”

It's #MUSICMONDAY! Meet Tori Loudenback. From an early age, music has been a driving force and creative outlet for her. Graduating from the University of North Texas in 2018 with a Bachelors in Journalism with a focus in Advertising, Tori is pursuing a career that celebrates and values artistic endeavors.

During her free time, she likes to travel, read, shop at thrift/antique stores, and is always on the lookout for the best Thai tea in town. Tori loves painting and knows the heart required to make authentic art. The love of her life, Scottie, her 15-year-old dachshund, can always be found sitting by her side napping away.

#MUSICMONDAY feat. Tyler Dozier

Ever since I was able to comprehend music, I knew what my favorite genre was, R&B, & Hip- Hop. I was heavily influenced by my parents & grew up listening to artists like Michael Jackson, Lauryn Hill, Salt’N’Peppa, LL Cool J, TLC, Boyz II Men, Whitney Houston, & more. My preference in music has shifted over the years, influenced by my friends & the people I interact with.

Introducing #TeamHype's tallest intern in company history, Tyler Dozier! Standing at 6'5" with a size 15 shoe, the brand new 21-year-old is still growing. Born in Baltimore, Maryland, the North Texas transplant moved here when he was just five years old. Now a senior at the University of North Texas (UNT), Tyler is studying Media Arts with a minor in Marketing. Passionate about music, dance, culture, and art, he spends countless hours watching dance videos on YouTube, trolling for the best Spotify playlists, and sharing his life on SnapChat. 

Like most college students, Tyler is still finding his footing in the industry - but who knows what they want at 21? He's excited to get his start as a part of our small but mighty creative team.

#MUSICMONDAY feat. Silas Nello

Silas Nello hails from Dallas. Like so many other people that call Dallas home, he grew up somewhere else.

Silas Nello weaves the spirit of these conversations in the music. Half rock and roll, half folk - blending the domestic dialogue with frustration, the music is playing for you. He's been a server. He's been a bartender. He's been your confidant at the bar and shared a long conversation with you while you waited in line at the store. 

Silas is on the Hand Picked Tour Aug. 22 to Aug. 27. You can find more information about the tour here.

"These songs came to me either organically or through friends over the past year while I was working on my album and broadened my creative outlook tremendously.  I think there's something to be said about "timeless" works of art and I feel that all of these tracks fall right into that category. Enjoy."

"I think we live in such an exciting time, musically, for collaboration and access, creative risks and artist evolution. Those things happen so much more frequently and quickly than they used to. I added two songs from each artist here so you can get a taste of the breadth of talent just from one song to the next, some a year apart, some from the same album, just a great showcase of what artists can do."
