Drue “On A Mission”
With an eclectic mix of Soca, R&B, Hip Hop and Reggae, there is no doubting the diverse ripple effect caused by such phenomenal success stories of great performers like, Michael Jackson, Bob Marley , Machel Montano and LL Cool J have influenced the young and energetic Drue to become who he is today. Drue, who is primed to make his presence felt as he crafts a rhythm all of his own throughout the music industry, offers a glimpse into who he is, a young man, first, and also an artist.
After making a dent in the music scene as one of the lead singer of the dance and vocal quartet “Crossovah,” it is highly anticipated that Drue is sure to leave his stamp on the music industry as he makes his solo debut. Drue has been laying the foundation for his musical career since the tender age of 5 years old and has come a long way with humble beginnings from Cocoyea San Fernando, inTrinidad and Tobago. It was only after his move to the United States that he met the people who gave him the motivation he needed to enhance his vocal talents. Although Soca music is an influential part of his career, Drue hopes to break the cultural barriers like so many artists have done in the past.
For his solo debut, Drue stepped into the booth with producers including, Dwain “Dwaingerous” Antroubus who worked with all-star artists such as (Machel Montano, Patrice Roberts, Zan, Edwin Yearwood and Wayne Marshall), Peter Coppin of Monstapiece Inc.(Rupee, Allison Hinds, Bunji Garlin etc) and Trinidad and Tobago’s own Carl “Beaver” Henderson (Marlon Asher). Drue hopes to give fans “a deeper insight of who he is, an entertainer with so much to offer!”
Performing for large crowds is nothing new to Drue as he has been doing so from such a young age. He has opened for artist such as Jeffrey Osbourne, Mario, Fat Joe, Sean Kinston, Llyod, Machel Montano, Allison Hinds, Destra Garcia, Patrice Roberts, Red Rat, TOK and many more. Drue grew up listening to the smooth rhythms of Luther Vandross, New Edition, Boyz II Men and Usher, the pop sounds of Michael and Janet Jackson, the Comical and Witty lyrics of the late Lord Kitchener, Sparrow, Ronnie Mcintosh and Crazy and the fast paste riddims of Machel Montano, Red Rat, Mr Vegas, Bennie Man, Bunji Garlin and many more.
Drue aspires to become a very influential member of the entertainment world adding his own flavor to the foundation that has been laid by so many great artists before him. Looking toward the future, Drue envisions each step of his career as chapters of a never ending story that includes songwriting, acting, producing and much more. When asked what music means to him, he responded without hesitation, “Music is life, music is my life, every note, every sound and every lyric has a message and I intended to deliver that message to the best of my ability. It’s a way for fans to get to know me and THAT’S MY MISSION!!”
