Harlem NYC’s own Tyrik Ballard is a young visionary with a powerful voice and an even more powerful presence and message behind his music. Tyrik began his musical journey at the early age of 15, writing and singing songs to express his emotions and telling the stories of his life, through the art of song. Urged to further his career and talent by his family, they pushed him to pursue his craft in a serious manner. Tyrik embodies leadership and focus. He was captain of his swim team in school and took part in the Junior Olympics. The discipline that he acquired through the sport taught him the importance of teamwork at an early age.
Tyrik’s Life has not been without its tragedy and heartbreak, as senseless gun violence unexpectedly ended the life of a close friend. Tyrik poured his pain into pen and paper, and that tragedy inspired him to write the song “Why Don’t We Try”, where he spreads a profound message of gun violence awareness and focuses on community and growth. A millennial, with an old soul, Tyrik is a visionary who cites the foundation of his musical inspiration as 90’s R&B. It shines through in his effortless, smooth and soulful tones. His story is one of talent, passion and perseverance.
