Ky Richy - "Just give me my music, my wife and my son".
Ky Richy’s morals and principles are clear as day. It’s also extremely clear to see how talented he is. Being only a music artist is an understatement. From videography, a fashion designer and an amazing father .
Ky Richy Has expresses his creativity through a vast amount of outlets . His live show is a must watch, as he performs with his band . His most recent project release , “No Sad Faces” has had a huge impact on the music sound of 2022.
We asked Ky Richy How do you feel creativity and optimism is important to our generation?
I feel creativity and optimism means everything to our generation. I think it promotes the best way of living, and I think if we can preach the importance of this it will really help guide this lost generation to a greater calling in life.
The three albums out on the I tunes plattform, makes it safe to say Ky Richy’s work ethic is on 100! We understand that people in the world have nothing else but their creativity. It’s the one thing we all have in common. To the miss understood and less privileged, always know that for every great person there is a cross to carry.
It’s not easy to stay creative, it’s not always the first thing that some people think to be in tough trials and tribulations .
How have you overcome a trial and tribulation as a company using creativity and optimism?
Creativity and Optimism has literally saved my life. From losing family members to struggling with life long addiction and depression, I don’t know how else I would have been able to overcome these low points in my life without being able to express myself through art. Being able to turn negative situations into healthy positive outcomes means everything to me and my progress as an artist, as a father, and as a human being. If you can take any situation and use it as fuel to inspire and accomplish your goals, then you are truly unstoppable!
The beautiful thing to think about is the only thing stopping you is you . WE CAN ALL BE GREAT! is EvenRights motto . The grind is a beautiful thing, every great person had to work countless hours to achieve what they wanted to achieve. Mastering your craft takes practice, it’s all about what YOU do to master your craft .
What are your Beliefs of how we can all be characterized as equal beings as humans. That we all have the trait of being creative and optimistic.
I believe we should only be judged by our willingness to grow as human beings and help one
another progress to accomplish all of our goals. Regardless of the hand we were dealt, I believe we are all created equal, we all have 24hrs in a day, and we all have the opportunity to go out in the world and do great things!
The old saying sometimes you have to do something you’ve never done to get some thing you’ve never had. This plays a huge role in staying creative, sometimes you need to work as harder than you ever have before in order to come up with ways to stay creative to stay creative. It’s all about how much effort will you put into figuring out what it is you need to do to mentally physically and emotionally put your mind state in a creative space.
How hard is it to stay creative and what would you say to somebody experiencing this same issue.
It can be very hard to stay creative at all times, especially in this fast paced day of age. Creativity can come to you at random times, even for the most brilliant of creatives, and it doesn't always meet deadlines. Sometimes you have to push through those rough days when things just aren’t clicking. You have to remain optimistic and do things that help spark ideas or put. you are in a creative place of thinking. Some days it will all come to you, other days not so easy. It’s important to know these rough patches are temporary and all part of the process & our journey. I think people are afraid to fail and that anxiousness can lead to procrastination or even impulsiveness. Although it is this very same process of trial and error that can make you stronger as a creative, and ultimately help you learn more about yourself to bring your best work!
Sometimes people doubt you until I see you succeed. When that occurs the only thing that matters is what you believe. By never letting anyone else’s fears, doubts or insecurities project your outcome will bring you closer to your goals. EvenRights believes never judging anyone by their sex race or financial income or religion beliefs is very important to teach our younger generation.
Will equality be something your brand will promote after this blog/interview ?
My brand has always promoted equality in the sense that at any given moment, any given person, can do any given thing. We are all capable of great things and I believe the Ky Richy brand promotes self awareness of our strengths and the idea that anything is possible and everyone has the opportunity to do amazing things in their life.

Sometimes we think of what we could’ve done , or what we should’ve done however thinking of the solution is the most important, thinking of the achieved is the most motivational. However learning from your passes is also very important for just about anybody.
If there were three things you could have done different, earlier , or better while building your brand . What would it have been?
I think a lot of people don’t truly believe in themselves enough or the movement they are trying
to push, and it will show. My younger self struggled with that and in return I lost myself to uncertainty and ultimately my addictions. I wish I would have taken things more seriously at a younger age. I always believed in myself and knew I was capable of accomplishing anything I wanted, but was I willing to really set my mind to it and make the sacrifices necessary to succeed? The answer was no. It took years and many life experiences to find this self discipline and mindset, lay the groundwork, and build a foundation for my brand. It took maturing into the artist, father, and man I am today for me to finally figure it out. Sobriety, Faith, Sacrifice and hard work, my personal recipe for success!
Just as we can all be great, we can also all learn. The power of knowledge is truly important sometimes so important that it can save a life. Passing down the knowledge that we learn from the adult generation to the younger generation is very key. Taking the time to cater to a primarily adult audience. What can we teach our adult audience to do in order to be examples of equality for our youth?
I think education and conversation is everything, to be able to discuss these things in a positive and healthy way. I myself as an artist try to promote that being vulnerable is okay in the sense that the “coolest” thing you can do is be yourself and find peace and balance in your life. For example, I talk about my addictions, becoming a father, and the balance between my family and my career in my music. It’s authentic, it's true to me, and I think people ultimately resonate with that over trying to fabricate things to fit a mold of what is “cool” so to speak.
It’s important that we hold not only others accountable, it’s also important for everyone to hold themself accountable.
Do you think educational tutorials for police officers of how equality, creativity and optimism may be able to better decision making officers are forced to make in the field. Yes I believe that the new curriculum in the forces that promotes the importance of equality, creativity, and optimism could help benefit our officers to serve and protect in the best way possible. I don’t know exactly what is taught, so it is hard for me to speak on the matter, but I do see a need for improvement and it all starts with conversations and more education to shed light on these subjects.
The tobacco industry is constantly frowned upon in commercials. Do you think people have a choice whether to smoke tobacco or not? Or is there something that influences them beyond measure to even become addicted.
Substances have had a major effect on my life, and I believe they are the main reason I am not exactly where I want to be in life. I feel my addictions have held me back so much but I am forever thankful and blessed for my new found sobriety and the strength I find in myself each and every day to stay away from drugs and alcohol that once consumed my life. That being said, I personally have turned to coffee (caffeine) and cigarettes (nicotine) as vices that have replaced my more serious bad habits. Although it has helped me in recovery, I do hope to quit these vices as well to live completely free of the vices that consume me. EvenRights supports education in general. If there’s ever any room for improvement it should be discussed. If there’s ever any room to add knowledge to the youth upbringing it should be talked about. Never taking away from what all the teachers go through and the knowledge that is taught outside the school curriculum of any school. To take more life awareness skills and apply them to school curriculum would only help equipped our children with another form of knowledge that would only be a positive impact in their lives.
How can we strengthen the curriculum of schools with more life awareness skills and strategies.
Yes! I am a strong believer in the need for change in our school system / curriculum. Not every child learns the same! I personally am a visual learner and I struggled in school because I have ADHD and could not retain information easily. It was really hard on me, and dealing with that and struggling socially in school really made me not want to attend. I stayed home a lot just focusing on my creative skills and building knowledge on things that have now got me further in life than anything I ever learned in school. I wish the school system would better prepare us for the world we live in!
