A multi-hyphenate, fresh-faced talent on the scene, Projex Santana is the quintessential contemporary recording artist. Born Ryan Joshua Washington, the DC-born singer-songwriter got his start in the music industry as a drummer for local area go-go bands. He lent his writing skills and background vocals to up-and-coming rappers, helping him to eventually launch a solo career. His first official single, 2019's "Good Love," and it's follow-up version "Good Love - Acoustic" showcased his versatility as an artist. By the release of "Addictive Soul" in 2021, he had fully come into his own as an artist, with a style that is impossible to imitate, cementing him as an R&B powerhouse on the rise.
