Beak Nasty (Ryland Sabien) is a 20 year old multi-instrumentalist/producer/DJ that combines the sounds of hip hop and intense bass lines to create futuristic chill funk/electro soul music. When he moved out of his small Wisconsin hometown at age 16, he immediately got involved with the Minneapolis hip hop scene by producing and DJing for the likes of Kids Like Us, Allan Kingdom, and many others. At age 17, he began attending McNally Smith College of Music and performed nearly every stage in Minnesota whether it be DJing for emcees or doing his own thing entirely. He quickly rose up the ranks in the local scene, and it was not long until he began working full time on his solo career releasing an album every year since 2011. Shorty after the release of his third album "Chill Funk Files Vol. 1" in July 2013, Beak Nasty combined forces with Florida percussionist Foxy Dope (Phil Ade) and together they have gotten booked all over the midwest from small venues to large festivals. This quickly gained them a regional fan base which has lead to a global presence in the music industry.
