Shyan Selah is a rising star who embodies the essence of the most trendsetting music icons from his hometown of Seattle. Inspired by the likes of Ray Charles, Jimi Hendrix and Kurt Cobain, Shyan’s urban brand of rock music has created wide spread anticipation throughout the industry. As an artist who strives to reach the youth, he has been on the speaking circuit for years, working with various high schools and colleges around the nation.
