Rising Artist Heyobed Ashebir Hopes to Break Out From Tiktok to Make It in the Music Industry

Back then, the best way for an upcoming artist to get their career running was through either the radio or distributing their mixtapes. Today’s aspiring artists are luckier as technology allows them to get a headstart on social media platforms like Soundcloud, Instagram, and TikTok. Heyobed Ashebir is one of the latest people to join the trend and build a career.

Heyobed Ashebir is an eighteen-year-old who is looking to make a name for himself in the music industry. Like most people his age, Heyobed runs an account on the viral video-sharing app TikTok. Mainly a platform for sharing entertaining content, he uses TikTok to showcase his abilities as a performer.

Ever since he was young, Heyobed loved performing. At the age of four, he discovered his voice and a passion for singing. Growing up, he would develop a dream to perform on stage. Apart from singing, Heyobed had a knack for dancing. On TikTok, he would exhibit some of his moves in his videos and perform a couple of challenges. So far, he has only shown brief clips of his singing.

On Instagram, Heyobed has posted two videos of his singing. However, despite how brief the clips are, one cannot deny the young singer’s potential to excel. The earliest post dating in 2016 is a fleeting cover of The Band Perry’s If I Die Young. Heyobed’s raw voice carries a soulful melody that genuinely captures the emotions of the song. His latest post came on the fifteenth of October just this year. He shared a two-minute audio clip covering Rex Orange County’s song Always. 

Although the two songs carry a somber mood, Heyobed does not limit himself to a single genre. Even when he was growing up, the aspiring musician would sing and dance along to any music that he could vibe with, from pop and R&B to alternative and so much more. When Heyobed is writing music, he goes through a freeflow process and writes without a particular genre in mind. 

Heyobed Ashebir has always been creative whenever it came to music. All his life, singing had always driven his heart. It was music that gave Heyobed a place to escape from any problems life threw at him, giving him space to breathe and say what Heyobed wanted to communicate when he couldn’t find the right words. He was motivated to create a world for himself and decided to pursue a career in the music industry.

Another unique factor that Heyobed brings with him is his indifference to competition. Artists are known to try to outdo the other’s records and performances, and for budding musicians, it’s a race to fame. But Heyobed was never a competitive person. Although he is known to be goal-oriented and ambitious, Heyobed’s priority is seeing his own progress. For him, the only person worth competing against is himself.

Heyobed Ashebir knows he is still young, but he is hoping to build his career and, in 5 years, become an established artist by twenty-three. Like how he was inspired as a child while listening to the greatest performers and singers, Heyobed hopes to create music that can have just as much impact on audiences worldwide.

Heyobed Ashebir’s music will be available on SoundCloud and YouTube. He is also active on TikTok, Instagram, and Twitter, where he posts his thoughts and progress towards a music career.
