The FlyRydaz are a Hip-Hop/Pop/Electro group who are steadily carving their way into the music industry. The group grew up together in historic Cambridge MA, blocks away from world renowned Harvard and MIT, next to Boston. Its members, Rook, 23, Woodz, 24, and React, 22, are a tight-knit team who not only make phenomenal music, but also put a unique spin on traditional styles. ==================== Rook was raised in a musically-eclectic home, and wanted to express himself from an early age. He begged to start working as an actor and model at age five, and gained experience and skills working with top producers. At age 12 he had worked his way up to a national hit kids' TV series, PBS's daily show, "Zoom!" He enjoyed a national reputation as a TV personality for several years. In 2001 Rook started a rap group with Woodz and friends, and they began recording. In 2004, Rook moved to New York City for college, music and experience. In the City, he found his way quickly, competing in rap battles in venues all over, and making friends in the industry. He is busy traveling the East Coast performing and recording every week. React also grew up in Cambridge MA, where music and basketball were his loves. He would play ball with his brothers and friends, and then hang out in the parks in long freestyle sessions. In school, React formed a rap group, SRS, with two of his classmates, including the now-successful rapper Sam Adams. They are still great friends. By high school, his brother, Woodz, had formed his own rap group with Rook and friends, and pulled React in with them. The group earned cred around Boston for putting down cool raps in appearances at big parties and social events. In 2005, React attended the University of Massachusetts Dartmouth, where he was a basketball star all four years, earning awards and accolades for his performances on and off the court. All the while he was writing rap lyrics to let people know music was still on his mind. After graduating in 2009, React began working seriously with his brother Woodz and Rook. By then the two had formed the "FlyRydaz" super-group and were eager to add React. Woodz has been immersed in music since a child. Growing up in a vibrant family setting in Cambridge, he was exposed to all kinds of music. As a tyke, Woodz would recite his favorite MC's rhymes on his way home from school, and showed an early talent with hip-hop. In high school he teamed up with childhood chum Rook and friends, and began working more seriously on writing. After a year or two of recording, Woodz found a unique style. His ability to write a well- rounded and vocally sound chorus is unmatched. In early manhood, Woodz fathered a beautiful baby girl, which focused his work even more powerfully, and brought out a determination for success that is stronger than ever. ================= The FlyRydaz' continuously growing fan base, fans from high school to mid 20's, love loud beats and partying; and the 'Rydaz never disappoint them. They bring a dynamic and innovative approach to music that makes them stand out and thrill an eager audience. The FlyRydaz have performed all over the Northeast, including Boston, Providence, Philly, DC, New Hampshire, and New York, amazing crowds and creating memories. In mid-July 2010, they captured and controlled a crowd of 2500 at a sold-out Boston House of Blues, supporting their friend rapper Sam Adams. Then they joined Sam's tour two months later for 6 dates. They've also shared the stage with such acts as BadBoy artists MACHINE GUN KELLY and LOS. CLINTON SPARKS, MAC MILLER, VH1'S SOMAYA REESE, KIDINK, STALLEY, RADICAL SOMETHING, AKROBATIK, MOUFY, and more. They were also selected to perform at fundraiser events including a performance for the 'Make a Wish Foundation' in Lowell MA, as well as a performance for the US military event 'Our Forgotten Warriors' at Joint Base Lewis McChord in Tacoma Washington (with Somaya Reece). Recently, they won an ESPN music contest and are having our music featured during their Friday Night Fights Boxing event. Their music has also made is second appearance on the the Boston airwaves, with their song being spun numerous times on the famous HOT97 Boston. Woodz recently came in 3rd place in Oscar Award Winning and Three Six Mafia member Juicy J's nation wide song/video competition, beating out thousands of entries. He won a skype listening and feedback/advice video session with the decorate rap legend and the video was on Juicy's website for weeks. Woodz' vocals were also used on a French electro album by artist Paral-lal. Rook, who also has an apartment in NYC, which subsequently services as the groups base for all NYC related biz, is about to release his 2nd much anticipated project 'Mixed Ape: the mixtape' this march. Woodz is also in gear to release his first solo project 'My Life is ahhh Party' soon, and React is also set to drop his solo joint entitled 'The Play'.
