My hope is to meet people where they are and that they would feel their spirits lifted.
Hulvey’s, a twenty-four year old Brunswick, GA native, went from dropping out of college and scrubbing toilets at Publix to becoming Reach Records’ latest breakout hip hop artist. His music has quickly developed into his sonic calling-card, but to fully appreciate the music is to know who Hulvey the person is. His child-like wonder and reverence for his Creator motivates his desire to reflect the beauty of Christ through tastefully refined music.
Signing with Reach Records in 2019, he immediately went to work, releasing a slew of compelling singles, five EP’s and his debut, self-titled album, Christopher, in the span of four years. In 2021, Hulvey released his top ten album Christopher, his EP COMA, and received a Dove Award for “Higher Power” with Crowder.
Now in 2023, following a successful run of singles in 2022 including “Beautiful,” “Have Me,” and “Closer,” Hulvey is leaning more so into his soulful melodic sound alongside his introspective raps and is already having an artist-defining, breakthrough year. Releasing 5 singles so far this year, 3 of which Held spots on Billboards’ Hot Christian Songs, with No Longer Bound peaking at #19, with 16 total weeks on the chart, and Altar peaking at #25, with 7 total weeks on the chart and lastly, WALK featuring GRAMMY Award winning artist Lecrae also spent five weeks on the Hot Christian Songs chart peaking at #5. The success of these tracks has catapulted Hulvey’s catalog—creating viral trending moments for “Can’t Tell It All” and “Beautiful”—and led to partnerships with the Houston Roughnecks of the XFL and Twitch.
The new music pouring out of Hulvey lyrically and sonically reveals his true authentic self, embracing his diverse range from hip hop to pop and even soul. These infectious sounds and styles affirm Hulvey’s ability as a musical chameleon, one that can master any genre with excellence and flow seamlessly between them all.
Coming off of his first Headline tour and reflecting on the quickly growing success of his career as a Christian artist, Hulvey says, “What matters to be above anything is making music that glorifies God and I want people to be able to hear that when they press play. My hope is to meet people where they are and that they would feel their spirits lifted.” It seems the best is yet to come for Hulvey.
