Ryan Willis embraces happiness and heartbreak with emotion-filled music 

LAKESIDE, CA – Ryan Willis is an emerging multi-genre artist, singer, producer and songwriter from San Diego whose new single “Old Friend” is the kind of relevant and soul-stirring song that is sure to connect with audiences all over the world. This talented musician is poised to make waves with his storytelling style and infectious sound. Through his emotion-filled vocal performances, Willis radiates raw emotion through ear-gracing instrumentation. Inspired by his life experiences, Willis paints a blank canvas with lyricism rooted in happiness and heartbreak. This California-bred artists strives to push the envelope with his sound to make a well-rounded, dynamic style that fuses an alternative style with a modern pop vibe. 

“Old Friend” is a song that he said many people in the world will be able to relate to, as it explores a situation that is unfortunately all too familiar for a lot of people. It’s about a friendship that has soured after the realization that there was a long history of betrayal and toxic interactions. 

“It’s about being stabbed in the back by the one person you trusted the most,” Willis said. “I was lied to, manipulated and talked badly about behind my back. I blocked them completely out of my life, and I knew deep inside they weren’t a real or best friend at all. I remember the day I had that realization so clearly – I was so hurt and angry and disappointed. I wanted to vent about it, but there was nobody around to vent to. I didn’t have a car and my phone was dead, so I grabbed a pencil and notebook and the end result was this song. I know that a lot of people can relate to it because we’ve all had that person in our lives. But hopefully this song will provide some measure of comfort for people.” 

Willis seeks to connect intimately through his music with listeners to help them heal through whatever life obstacles they’re facing. He’s the kind of artist who has listeners engulfed in the musical world he creates with his real-ness and lyrical rawness. He’s definitely an artist to watch, as he is set to cement himself in the music industry for years to come. 

“If I can heal one person, I’m happy,” he said. “Making other people happy makes me happy. In fact, it’s the No. 1 source of my happiness. Sometimes I struggle with depression, and the one thing that’s guaranteed to make me happy if I’m depressed is making someone else’s day. That’s the best feeling in the world. And that’s what I bring with my music.”

DMV-based rapper/producer Santa Sallet and France-based producer Nemizzo are MSP, presenting their new single “Big Hands”. Sallet has been busy showcasing his brand of East Coast braggadocious rap across a slew of recent singles like “Camouflage” (watch on Youtube), “I Get Money” (watch on Youtube), “Championship Ring” (watch on Youtube) and “Chinese Funk” (watch on Youtube) in preparation for the release of Plutography, Sallet’s forthcoming album which blends salsa beats, southern trap, and eastern jazz with classic and conventional rap samples, reflecting Sallet’s international upbringing across South Africa, Dominica and the US. Sallet is planning a series of full-length releases, among them C.R.E.A.M. which recounts his journey from broke to financially free, and Women and R.A.P. which describe his pursuit of success in relationships and the music industry respectively. “This is the song that really started MSP Tunes,” Santa says. “Nemizzo had laid down his verse and I was like, let me try something on this and I just talked about what I knew. What I think is funny, the outro is actually me recording a bunch of potential beat tags. There was a miscommunication and Nemizzo extended the beat and made it the outro. I like it though lol.” Check out Santa Sallet merch here.
