Soultru is a self proclaimed hip-hop/soul crooner based out of the Midwest calling the Quad cities home for 30 years. Combining his poetic and lyrical talents with a soulful voice.
Pulling in his influence from growing up around gospel music and listening to Fred Hammond, and Smokie Norful along the way of a sheltered childhood crippled his love for new genres.
As time passed he found artists such as Gavin Degraw (who he credits as his biggest vocal influence) Brian McKnight,
Anthony Hamilton and Kanye West who led him to find John Legend.
Through friends recently he's been getting more into the indie side of hiphop and less of the mainstream. With some of his newer influences coming from artists such as
the FAKE FOUR INC. Roster, Jacob Banks, Son Little, and Allen Stone.
Soultru has had the pleasure of opening for artists such as
Ceschi Ramos, Kweku Collins, Rittz, Magic City Hippies, and Michigan Rattlers as of recently.
He is among a group of young, talented and driven artists that are the backbone of the Quad Cities indie music scene, a scene that has developed into a hidden gem in the Midwest for indie music of all genres in recent years.
