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. Starting in a small town named Soap Lake, he had an idea of getting out by playing beautiful music with his guitar. While working a full time job at a retirement home as an activities director he started his journey at being a musician. Now you can find him at wineries, breweries, major venues and festivals entertaining crowds all across Washington state. 

Engaging audiences with his music, he bring to life his songs with stories he tells between a few songs. These interludes have become as much a part of the show as the music. Yes every song has a back story though not all of the are told at every show. This helps the audience connect to his music on a deeper level as he talks about his adventures, hometown and love.

Music wise, he tailors his sound to your venue. All of his music is family friendly  and can switch it up between soft ballads to an upbeat pop rock.With a large repertoire he can keep your guest entertained throughout your event regardless of duration.
