Tyrik Ballard

Harlem’s own Tyrik Ballard is a young visionary with a powerful voice, presence and message behind his music. Tyrik began his musical journey at the early age of 15 while writing and singing songs to express his emotions. Urged by his family to further his career, he decided to focus more time on his music. His musical inspiration is inspired through life experiences. After the tragic death of a close friend, Tyrik used his emotions to write the song “Why Don’t We Try”. This song brought awareness to gun violence and ways the community can become involved. Tyrik’s main goal is to inspire individuals to follow their dreams and remain focused on their goals. Currently, Tyrik has a new EP entitled “Evolution of the Lotus”.
