SOUNDSPOT: TONE TREZURE
Amongst the thousands of singers trying to do their thing these days, there are a few that have a memorable voice and sound. These are the artists that remind us that there is still some real originality and talent in the world amongst the carbon-copy fluff that seems to get the spotlight these days. I'm talking about the type of soul artist that evolves from a "singer" to a "sanger" at first listen. In the spirit of the true sangers out there, I want to introduce you folks to Tone Trezure. She's a Detroiter by way of Flint, Michigan and I've been following this young woman's career for some years now. The dopest thing about her is that she's a writer, producer and a singer all roled into one. She's definitely talented! Her soulfully rich vocals are what I like the most. Her sound takes me back to the 1970s sound when soul music was raw and emotional. If you dig that flavor, get familiar with Ms. Trezure. Even if you don't already know her name, you probably have heard her voice several times already. That's because she's worked with some of your favorite artists over the years. Plus, she's featured on my last soul mixx "Soulcanic Lava" that you should have download already, right!
Check out her resume of musical collaborations: Erykah Badu, Snoop Dogg, Little Brother, Joi, Strange Fruit Project, Bilal, Pharoah Monch, Jay Electronica, Young Zeke, Method Man, Game, Mr. Porter, Rah Digga...
