[ Chrystian Lehr ]
Clearly a genius in his craft, artist Chrystian Lehr is creating music that’s fresh and exciting. And judging from his solid fan base of over 300K active social media followers and subscribers across Instagram, Soundcloud, Facebook, and YouTube, the world agrees.
His soulful magic can be heard on his latest EP Offline, which features the work of Grammy award-winning producer Luney Tunez, best known for producing for Rihanna and Future, and songwriter Mickey Shiloh, best known for writing for Janet Jackson and Britney Spears.
Featured on MTV Buzzworthy and BET Jams, Chrystian’s music creates a language that mixes feelings, emotions, and complexities into sounds and words that speak directly to your heart. The heart doesn’t judge; it only listens and feels, making Chrystian’s music truly awe-inspiring. While his lyrics set the stage, it’s the melody that whisks you away, almost into another realm.
And the world has taken notice of his talents. It was his mashup of Drake’s “Hotline Bling” in 2015 that got him on the radar with leading artists and producers such as Maxwell, The Game, and Bryan Michael Cox. Featured on popular blogs “Baller Alert” and “The Shade Room,” the mashup generated over a million views.
The future looks bright for this budding artist. Chrystian just signed on with NTA Models & Talent and has appeared in several music videos, including one with Grammy Award winner Ella Mai. He is also currently appearing in a national Cadillac commercial directed by the Russo Brothers.
A native of Columbus, Ohio, Chrystian was born into a musical family. By the time he was 5 years old, he had entered his first talent show. At 8 years old, he had already won several awards for his musical composition and songwriting skills.
From there, Chrystian’s musical career took off. He was signed to a record deal straight out of high school. Fast forward to 2011, when Chrystian founded C Star Entertainment and signed on with Empire, a large music distributor, and production duo The Hitlist. This is the winning combination that has produced all his latest hits, including “I’ll Wait,” which premiered on BET Jams.
Chrystian’s love of music is responsible for the success he has achieved, not only as an R&B artist, but also as a successful businessman, and more recently as a philanthropist. He started a non-profit organization called CLASS (Creative Local Artist Support System), which helps and supports artists by helping to connect them to resources and people. The organization also gives out awards every year.
Chrystian is set to release his new album, Offline II in Summer 2020.
