CYRUS "CY-FI" SMITH
During his Freshman year of football at Atlanta, Georgia's North Gwinnett High School, Cyrus scored an average of 2 touchdowns and ran for more than 100 yards each game. Cyrus had his first glimpse at what he could accomplish in the music world, when he teamed up with his brother and sister to record the song, “Shoes.” Cyrus added the flavor and youthful appeal to the song with his baritone voice. Now at age 16, Cyrus has his eye on conquering the music world and he has something to say. His producers have positively commented on his work ethic and his willingness to learn. His music is edgy with clean vocals, which means his age demographic will surely be able to catch his vibe, but having a little swagger built in can’t hurt either. Whether it’s football or music, it doesn’t matter because this multi-talented young man has the chops that it takes to make success happen.
