Tops dropped and cropped, summertime is here and what’s the summer without a perfectly memorable soundtrack?
Buried beneath the releases of big name artists on June 18th, Brooklyn native Rkhty released a summer gem EP called Brooklyn Bound, complete with sounds of love, sounds of success, and of course, tales of ambition.
Rkhty, (rah-ket-ty), with a name that sounds more like a brand and less like a singer/songwriter, is a Brooklyn bred native who encountered her adoration of music at a young age. After a full collegiate career, the gritty talent has turned her sights on singing and songwriting professionally.
Rkhty’s catalog of music and influences range from the Divine One, Miss Sarah Vaughn, to Nina Simone, from Jim Reeves to Stevie Wonder and Dr. Slinger Francisco, the “Mighty” Sparrow. A result of the wide array of musical influences and personal experiences, Rkhty proves to be the voice of a rich heritage and brilliant past with her unique contemporary sound.
Do yourself a favor, take a break from the mainstream and tune in to a velvet voice with a message.
