About Prion Haiyle

Have you ever woken up, rolled out of bed, shambled your way to the porcelain throne and, by chance, you catch a glimpse of yourself in the mirror?

You may have wondered, "Who is this person?....This is not the me I remember being."
Some of you may just think that I am simply speaking of the physical changes that we can outwardly see. It's far deeper than that. It's looking into your own eyes and realizing that you aren't free anymore. Realizing that pieces of you are missing. That somewhere along the way your inspired ambitions have been replaced with illogical fears. It is the realization that you are so heavy. Not with any physical mass, but with the weight of 1,000,000 tons of what if's, regrets, and false starts.

There was a time when Prion Haiyle woke up to these realizations everyday.

“I was stuck in a constant loop of wanting to move forward, but being unable to remember how to lift my foot to take a step. It was a time of ignorant misery, a purgatory of numbing pain.” - Prion Haiyle

Prion Haiyle was born in Compton, Ca. A place more bastardized for its gang violence in the early 80's and 90's, than celebrated for the musical genius that has developed within it's borders. The eldest of four brothers, he leaned on music to give him the strength to overcome the multitude of challenges he faced as a youth.

“Gangs, drugs, crime, and women. They were all options for me. For some reason though, in my case, music super ceded them.” ….“You know, I never really fit in, but the Aquarian in me never minded much.” - Prion Haiyle

Out of high school, Prion Haiyle had the choice of a scholarship to the esteemed Berklee College of Music or a record deal on Warner Bros. He chose the latter. During that time he worked on an album with legends like Babyface, Teddy Riley and others. Even with early success he knew there was something more. That something was truth.

“There was something missing in the music, and in me as well.” he says. “Music is about self expression. No matter how good it sounds, if there is no authenticity for you there, it is impossible to be fully self expressed.” - Prion Haiyleb

Eventually due to circumstances outside of his control his tenure with Warner Brothers ended and he found himself stuck in limbo. There were times when he didn’t even want to leave the house. He didn’t see how he could face anyone. He still made music. Singing on hooks and writing songs for aspiring artists in the neighborhood. He even had a several meetings with major labels, but nothing panned out.

“I was broke and broken. Literally. No money, homeless, no stage to rock. Me and my girl were sleeping on the living room floor of my grandmother’s house. Then my grandma kicked us out and we were moving from hotel to hotel every week until we scraped up enough to rent a little house in Compton. The first night we were in the house it got shot up. We found out later it used to be the neighborhood traphouse. I’m like really!? You talking about low. I was six feet under spiritually and mentally.” - Prion Haiyle

He almost gave up so many times. It was hard to keep it going. He saved up enough to get some better equipment. He just kept grinding. Or, as he calls it, “sharpening the sword”. The whole time he never gave up on finding the truth in his music; doing whatever he could musically while trying to survive. Writing, producing, and demoing for other artists. Hustling for meetings. Trying to keep the dream alive.

“I had all the ingredients to bake the cake but I could never generate that heat. The buzz. It was always something. I’d go in and they would start by saying how the music was amazing. Then, they had little caveats like they threw in like….Your music is too smart. Can you dumb it down? We need something more like this artist or that artist. Can you give me something like that? In my head I’m thinking, you just told me my sound is great;. why do you want me to sound more like another artist?,” - Prion Haiyle

He tried to fit in and give the executives what they wanted and they still said no. Time and time again until he realized that if there was always going to be a reason why they would say no, then he should just make the music in his soul. His truth. It didn’t matter if it fit the mold or not.

To put it simply. He’s just found his lane. It’s a mashup of all his experiences. And the combination seamlessly comes together to form a sound whose influences range from sources as eclectic as Stevie Wonder to Red Hot Chili Peppers to Kendrick Lamar.

“Artistically, I have struggled a long time to find my place in the music world. It's no coincidence that I have come to this place now. There’s a creative void in music today, and that creates a perfect lane for an artist like me; who defies convention.” - Prion Haiyle

As you listen to his music now it is easy to assume he has found his truth. However, by his own account his search is far from done.

“I want to always have this hole to fill.” he says. “I want to always be learning and evolving, that's just my nature.” - Prion Haiyle

Is it hyperbole to say that Prion may just be a force of nature, himself? That is for you to decide when you go see him live and download his album. Be warned though, you
will be entering the eye of a musical storm.
