interned in "Artist Boot Camp" under engineer/professor Brad Cox. His debut single 'Oochie Couchie' was released globally in March 2019, and has consistently charted on numerous blues and southern soul charts and has been lauded as the best ever first single heard from an artist on - iTunes. Hisyde has muddied the waters at shows like Soul Fest 2019, and hopes to play for larger arenas through out the nation; He’s also shared the stage with notable artists like Carl Sims, Bobby Rush, Latimore, Ricki White & Lenny Williams on the once in a lifetime "Living Legends Tour.
Hisyde's debut album "Who Is Hisyde" released in early May, 2021, and was lauded an astonishing 4 out of 5 Stars from the Blues Critic, with a conglomerate o southern soul hit singles like the urban swing out classic: Oochie Couchie, The Git Up Featuring "Line Dance Pioneer" Big Mucci & Rico C, which was crowned "Line Dance of The Year" (Underground Southern Soul Awards), Is It Ova (2021 Blues Critic Best Funk/Dance Song) (Nominated for "Best Collaboration - SOUTHERN SOUL MUSIC AWARDS) & the south Arkansas anthem "Hap Here."
Hisyde is really coming on. "For Your Love" comes at you as easily as Mr. Campbell's "I'm Stepping Out" a couple years ago. This song plus "Is It Ova?" should catapult Hisyde above the rank-and-file for good.
Every song I've written revolves around bigger ideas and forms of self-expression...dreams, epiphanies, within my dirty south journals," he explains.
Fresh, ambitious and a man with a plan, Hisyde’s sound is a much-needed breath of fresh air in today’s commercial music scene; listeners want something new, something to resonate with, and Hisyde’s got just that. We can’t wait to see him hit the big stage. - Gee Gee Miller (Geffen
