Soul West Spotlights… TRELEE feat. TYREE and DJ BORNREADY. Singing since the age of 2, TreLee is a force to be reckoned with. Her love and passion for music stems from her involvement in church and school choirs, but it didn’t stop there. TreLee started singing in music groups and performing in talent shows at the age of 12. At the age of only 17, she recorded her first original song with her group, FLAVA. TreLee was influenced early on by R&B artist, Mary J. Blige. When asked to describe Mary J. Blige she said, “I think she changed the R&B game with her vocal style.” Having a style of her own, TreLee is on the path to doing the same. TreLee’s music has also been influenced by other artist such as the soulful Anita Baker, the smooth Luther Vandross, and the edgy Beyonce Knowles. TreLee has recently embarked on her biggest accomplishment to date, completing a CD. Her first solo project entitled “TreLee Revealed” brings you what you expect and ten times more. This soon to be released album is all about TreLee’s personal life and relationships. Adreinne Verniece, TreLee’s former bandmate, assisted TreLee with the writing, song arrangements, and vocal style on this project. TreLee is a force to be reckoned with and you would be a fool to miss out on the first taste of an up and coming star.
