18 year old musician Insyde was diagnosed with autism at a young age. He grew up with autism as a part of his life. He was taught that that is who he was, and that he could not change it. Entering his teen years, Insyde found that socializing was more difficult for him than other kids, so instead of hanging out with other children his age, he started running cross country and consistently came in top 5 in the races he took part of. “Cross country cured my autism.” Insyde said. Cross country helped Insyde to become more social, because he knew that he could do things few others could.
His freshman year, Insyde joined the OKC rowing team that trained at the Riversport Olympic training site. His background in cross country really helped him to become very proficient at the sport, and he went on to win the JV 2x event at the Central Youth Championships in 2017. In 2019 Insyde placed top 25 in the nation in the lightweight 4+ event at the USRowing Nationals in Sarasota, FL.
Insyde began his music career when he released his debut single “Sometimes” which went viral on SoundCloud, and has amassed over 2 million streams on all services combined to date. Insyde claimed that he wrote and recorded the single and recorded the music video within a 2 hour timespan. Withe the fame, also came the hate. Most of the success of the single was mostly driven by critics of the song. Insyde took a break from social media for about a month after the release to keep his focus off the hate.
After the success of “Sometimes” Insyde signed a record deal with AWAL, the company behind Lauv, deadmau5, and Gus Dapperton, and handles synch for musicians like Paul McCartney.
On August 2, 2019 Insyde released “Something Real” featuring Hennest and Tot. The song was received much better than his previous single, and quickly rose ion streaming services, netting over 150,000 streams in its first month. The song is from his debut EP, which will be released in January 2020.
