Lyrical messages and strong melodies are his forté. “When I write, I have to hear the beat to determine what I want to discuss in the song, then the words start flowing out. I’ve had times when there’s a melody stuck in my head. I record it on my phone and start working the words into the beat,” RJ Brady states.
The Mississippi-native spent his early years watching entertainers like Tina Turner, The Temptations, and Michael Jackson. Knowing that he had a passion for the arts, he honed his musical abilities by participating in multiple talent shows in his hometown. He eventually went on to attend a school for performing arts.

He utilizes dance as an accessory and extension of his music. “ Dance allows him to feel the music and feel the beat. If my body doesn’t move, I can’t feel it so I know my listeners won’t be able to feel it too”, RJ Brady states.
