Washington's #1 voted acoustic artist and United states top 10 voted acoustic artist.”

— Vans Warped Tour

Rylei Franks

Rylei Franks, Washington's top voted acoustic artist from 2014-2016. Getting his start in his hometown of Soap Lake, he gained a healthy supportive following. During his time working at the retirement home he sharped his performing skills by playing for the residents. After winning the Vans Warped Tour for acoustic artists he took that success and made an album. From that album he landed radio play across Washington state. Now you can find him performing across the P.N.W. at wineries, breweries, major venues and festivals entertaining crowds all across Washington state. 

Music wise, he tailors his sound to the venue. All of his music is family friendly and can switch it up between soft ballads to an upbeat indie rock.

Artists he has worked/ toured with:

Red Jumpsuit Apparatus, This Wild Life, Secondhand Serenade, Carson Allen (escape the fate guitarist), Jesse Lawson (sleeping with sirens guitarist) Metro Station (Miley Sirus brother), Dylan Jacobson, and Ryan Cabrerra, and Bonnie Guitar.
