If asked when her love affair with music began, LaRyss will tell you “I basically came out of the womb singing and never shut up”. Houston Texas native LaRyss spent her childhood engulfed in music, whether it was a church musical, or the school Choir and musical theatre organizations. These programs allowed her to discover her infatuation with performing and helped her to appreciate all genres of music, showing her that its beauty lays in its versatility. Her family, having seen this passion and love for singing present throughout her entire life, supported her in following her heart to pursue music as a career.
