Gyth Rigdon is no ordinary Louisiana country boy. Born on February 2, 1994 he was raised working from sun up to sun down on a southern Louisiana race horse farm in a small town called singer, Gyth was by far a stranger to the grueling work scene. When his day’s work was done, that’s when he found himself behind his six string Takamine guitar strumming the tunes that had been playing over and over in his head all day long. Thats when the ink met the paper and words met the rhythm for this young musician.

Gyth started singing and playing music at the age of three years old, by the time he was eight he was singing in church, private parties, and talent shows. Gyth's love for music has always been so sincere and second to nothing. Gyth graduated in May of 2012 from a small southern Louisiana school.

His dedication and relentless effort in becoming a professional musician is the very reason his dream is coming alive.
