PREMIERE | Soft & Smooth R&B From Toronto's Thayler Rhys With "10K Post Up"

Toronto's Thayler Rhys strips down to the core and meaning of R&B to give us smooth vocals and lyrics to live by.

For Thayler Rhys, familiarity means change; change in music, change in cities, change in perspective. He taught himself piano. He went to jazz school. He dropped out. He tried his hand at selling beats to rappers in New York. He studied neuroscience at the University of Toronto. He quickly realized how much music was his numero one, his passion, his go-to. 

His eclectic approach to R&B, offering a perfect balance of love, sex and dismay, you will want to hit the repeat button on this one. Teaming up with his classmate and producer, Quin Kiu, they both have become a force to reckon with, releasing their single "10K Post Up" including the soft yet hard-hitting electric guitar riffs at the end, which immediately hits a chord with us. 

You know when you have a break up and you go out with your friends and try to be a new person? ‘10K POST UP’, on the surface, is a carefree story of shedding past exes. But at the core, it captures the inevitability of change while exploring the empowering nature of finding an honest identity at a new stage of life.
