Rayvon Owen
For as long as he can remember, pop/soul singer, Rayvon Owen has dreamed of a life dedicated to music. Born to be on stage, the Richmond, VA., native began his music career at a very young age – singing in choirs, touring with gospel musicians and performing in local musicals. Influenced by legendary artists such as Lionel Richie, John Legend, Troye Sivan and Stevie Wonder, Rayvon has developed his own voice as a powerful performer and reflective songwriter.

By the age of 18, he relocated to Nashville, TN., to study Commercial Music at Belmont University. While in Music City, he pursued a performance career by writing with local musicians and performing at local events, venues, clubs and showcases. Shortly after graduation, Rayvon made his way from Nashville to Los Angeles, CA., where he continued to write and craft his sound. In 2014, he released his debut EP, “Cycles,” which includes the hit single “Sweatshirt.” In the past year, Rayvon took his talent on the road – performing at over 60 colleges across the United States.

Already having a fan base across the U.S., he became a household name and “Twitter Save” champion as a Top 4 finalist on season 14 of “American Idol.” While on “Idol,” Rayvon performed with the likes of Jamie Foxx, Rickey Martin, Boy George and many others. Receiving rave reviews from major outlets, including People Magazine, USA Today and Billboard, he is noted, not only for his star quality and beautiful vocal tone, but for his ability to bring authenticity and emotion to his performances.

Following his journey on “American Idol” and performing on the 38-city "American Idols LIVE!" tour this past summer, Rayvon shared his new creative direction and collaborative spirit with the September 2015 release of his “Air EP.” The 2015 L.A. Music Award’s “Rising Star” recipient recently wrapped recording on his new EP — set to release late 2016. His lead single, “Can’t Fight It,” premiered exclusively on Huffington Post Feb. 12. The music video was released on Valentine’s Day through Billboard, along with an exclusive interview that shared a part of Rayvon’s story publicly for the first time. Rayvon continues to strive to entertain his listeners and create an immersive and inspirational experience

You might just feel like you can do anything after you hear Who Is Fancy’s major label debut single, "Goodbye," and that's the whole point. It's woven into the very fabric of his music. Everything comes back to his message of personal freedom and empowerment.

Growing up in the tiny town of Bentonville, AK, Fancy always felt different. Saying that he didn't fit in at high school would be an understatement. As a result, the bullying became so bad that his parents allowed him to quit at 17-years-old and pursue his dream of music in Nashville, TN.

It was in "Music City" that Fancy was born. "They started calling me Fancy," he recalls. "It was the first time I could identify with something that was unique and individual for me." Three sold out shows based off word-of-mouth alone led to a Big Machine publishing deal that sent him to Los Angeles where he linked up with super producer Dr. Luke's Prescription Music. His trip to Los Angeles also landed him in the office of acclaimed talent manager Scooter Braun who signed him to management and his SchoolBoy Records.

At the start of 2015, Big Machine C.E.O. and founder Scott Borchetta tweeted the link to "Goodbye." There would be no pictures or information revealed. The world knew nothing about the voice behind the song. "Goodbye" went viral with praise from the likes of Meghan Trainor and Kacey Musgraves. Nobody knew his identity, but Fancy's message through "Goodbye" was clear and strong.

Even following his dramatic reveal on The Tonight Show starring Jimmy Fallon, Fancy remains true to his message. “Fancy means freedom," he leaves off. "Everyone is Fancy. I want this to be a moment for people to see it’s okay to be you. This isn't about me or who's singing: it's about how the music makes you feel."
