Teenage sensation Tryzdin has shared the video for his first single as a solo artist, ‘A New Way’ via Grá Mór Phonic Records. The single was written by long-term collaborator Marc Darcange and Californian songwriter Britt Warner and features prestigious musicians such as guitarist Brent Paschke (Pharrell Willimas, N.E.R.D.) and drummer Dylan Wissing (drummer for Alicia Keys). Tryzdin gained recognition at an early age when he received over 3.7 million views on Youtube after he covered Adele’s ‘Hello’ and was picked up by the likes of Huffington Post, Daily Mirror and RFM which resulted in invitations to Fox News and NBC4 TV shows.
Lead singer of the band Saint Mars, Tryzdin has won SongBro Award for Best Singing as well the public award at the Arnold Schwarzenegger classics singing competition in 2019. The band have received nearly 3 million streams across platforms, with features in tastemaker publications such as Clash Magazine, Wonderland Mag, Medium, Music Week, and Beats Per Minute, to name a few.

Hailing from Columbus, Ohio, Tryzdin was initially supposed to star for just one song with Saint Mars however, the young star quickly imposed himself as the band’s permanent lead singer alongside head honcho Marc Darcange. The young star finds inspiration in a variety of acts, including Twenty One Pilots, Jon Bellion, Conan Grey, Alec Benjamin however his own sound draws closer comparisons to the likes of Rag’n’Bone Man, Imagine Dragons and the old school stylings of The Beatles.
Directed by Romain Bedouet, the music video for ‘A New Way’ provides a unique glimpse into Tryzdin’s world. Embellished with stylish choreographed dancing and playful video editing, the video allows for the singer’s smooth acapella style to be showcased alongside the uplifting atmosphere of the brass band. Youthful, fun and filled with positive energy, ‘A New Way’ strips away all possible sorrow and stands proud as an anthemic single against bullying.
Tryzdin further elaborates on ‘A New Way’, “The song to me is about empowerment and overcoming your fears and especially overcoming hate. The song speaks about finding a new way to life and following your dreams. It speaks about facing your haters and showing them that you are stronger than they think. We are really hoping to connect with people who are experiencing or have been bullied. The song really connects with me on a personal level because I was physically and mentally bullied: I was shoved into lockers, brick walls, have had food thrown at me in the lunchroom, I was told multiple times to kill myself and told that I was not worth anything and that nobody ever wanted me. ‘A New Way talks about everything I am about and really everything I’ve wanted to say to those who have bullied me in the past: I am worthy and I am who I am meant to be.”
