Beats By Her is on a mission to transform the local music scene in cities across the country…starting here in the Big D first… naturally. Meet some of the incredible artists in this empowering community.
A native of Grambling, Louisiana and the youngest of three, Blythe Dennis was born on June 30, 1988 to Albert and Sarah Dennis. Both, Albert and Sarah Dennis worked on the campus of Grambling State University, where Blythe received her Bachelor of Science degree in Leisure Studies in 2011. Shortly thereafter, she attended Texas Women’s University for a semester to pursue a dual Master’s Degree in Health Systems Management and Business Administration, however, Blythe decided to follow her dreams of becoming a neo-soul artist instead.
On February 14, 2013, Blythe released her first mixtape, Covers: Volume 1, via datpiff.com. The mix tape featured songs from some of the artists who inspire her. In March of 2014, Blythe released her second mixtape entitled, Many Are Called. This album focused on some of the obstacles she has encountered in regards to finding who she wanted to be, love, and finding her purpose. In April of 2017, Blythe released her third studio project entitled The Heartbreak EP. This project was a very personal look into her journey in self love, lust, and relationships.

How would you describe your style (music & fashion)? I am a very “all over the place” person and that shows in my fashion style and music. I like to take different elements and turn them into my own thing. As far as music goes, I love jazz, neosoul, R&B, pop, rock, classical, a little bit of everything. But if I had to choose a genre, I’d definitely say soul because I strive to put a piece of me into every song that I write.
Who’s your current musical inspiration and why? Jill Scott. Her stage presence is amazing. She knows how to captivate and get the crowd to participate.
Your thoughts on the DFW music scene? I’ve been in the city for six years and I’d definitely say the scene has changed a lot in that course of time. The fact that there are opportunities like Beats By Her now is awesome! There are so many incredible artists in the city alone, not to mention the state.
Your biggest challenges in pursuing a music career? My biggest challenge would probably be visibility. It’s so hard being an independent artist. It really is a hustle but it has forced me to be more transparent and open with others which has helped with my art tremendously! In every trial, there is a testimony!
Where can we find/buy your music? My EP (The Heartbreak EP) is available on all streaming sites as well as iTunes, CD Baby, Amazon, and Google Play.
