I.Am.Tru.Starr

 
IAMTRUSTARR, Bandzoogle: With an inexhaustible amount of creativity woven deep into the layers that make up the artist that is I.Am.Tru.Starr, his career, as a recording artist, is a testament to that of a dedicated craftsman’s. Making sure he was able to come correct with his talents, this Rochester-born musician is now stepping out amongst the shadows with a mission larger than an average vocalist’s.
 
Using his modest upstate roots as motivation for his own music, I.Am.Tru.Starr is working with the intention to lead by example, with a dedicated passion to show the next generation already looking up to him that beautiful things can grow out of what others consider a deadbeat town.
 
“Growing up in places like where I’m from, kids don’t get the chance to dream properly,” the emcee says, with bright eyes. “I’m chasing mine so they don’t ever have to be timid about chasing theirs.”
 
Recording music in a serious capacity since 2012, I.Am.Tru.Starr grew up in music by way of his neighborhood, with his friends challenging him early on to find confidence in his natural ability to rap, going on to form a group out of a local DJ’s basement using borrowed equipment.
 
As a child I.Am.Tru.Starr would emulate the vocal styling of Dave Hollister until his family would tell him to quiet down. Eventually they started listening and whether he was singing classic covers or sneaking in his own rudimentary lyrics, their compliments began to hold weight, especially considering that as a musical household with high standards, his family members were tough critics to please.
 
Channeling the spirit and sounds of the likes of D’Angelo, Fred Hammond, Scarface, Andre 3000 and Donny Hathaway and more, I.Am.Tru.Starr’s current sound is film noir meets 2016. His ability to share his story with potent lyrics and lush melodies, carefully crafted into his own self-described sound of “Soul Hop,” allows him to both reach - and captivate - a varied audience. Taking elements of hip-hop, R&B, funk, gospel and alt-soul, I.Am.Tru.Starr’s battle cry is emotional. His music comes from a place of raw honesty, and that foundation of pure expression is all he has.  After getting swallowed by the wrong crowd and experiencing significant setbacks as a result, I.Am.Tru.Starr prevailed by harnessing a redefined purpose, learning more than the instruments he taught himself during this deeply personal and challenging chapter of darkness.
 
As I.Am.Tru.Starr begins to settle into a space entirely his own musically, he is built up by the people he selectively works with, finding a second family in his curated group of producers and creative minds all united under the undeniable power of art, and truth –
(IAMTRUSTARR, Bandzoogle)

Kevin Sinatra

That raw intellectual hiphop sound provided by DMV's highly anticipated unsigned artist Kevin Sinatra, has not gone unnoticed.  With features in 2dopeboyzHipHopHundreddjbooth, and many more Kevin continues to drop classic bangers.  While covering one of his early 2017 projects "Sleep Paralysis", Earmilk gave a highlight to his lyrics, stating that  "he's making a poignant statement about young black males at the hands of the very institutions (such as police, i.e "angels") built to protect them but instead suffer due to being undervalued in western society."

LegenDerry

CDA Management, a full-service artist management company representing a variety of talent in the areas of film/television, modeling, music, comedy, and dance brings yet another phenomenal hip hop lyricist stemming from the home of the black and yellow - LegenDerry a premier up and coming rapper born and raised in Pittsburgh, PA.  Like fellow Pittsburgh MCs, Wiz Khalifa and Mac Miller, LegenDerry found his musical muse at a very young age. After discovering his musical talent and ambition, he placed his focus on writing, recording, and producing his own music. Through his undying ambition and versatile lyrics, it is evident that LegenDerry stands apart from the rest.  For instance check his Pure Imagination project; the track titled Pure Imagination produced by Breaux provides a good example of the quality of sound, style, flow and maturity in LegenDerry's voice - plus its a sick track. 

LegenDerry credits his creativity to his father, who was the vocalist for a punk-rock band in his youth. Coming from a musical family background, LegenDerry found his passion for his own style through a musical technology class in high school. There, he began making beats, recording vocals, and learning production. He started a rap group in 9th grade, which received backlash and caused controversy throughout his school. He was bullied for being a white rapper, and eventually relocated to a different high school for his senior year.

One of the most crucial moments in LegenDerry’s career, was his first studio session at MCM studios in Pittsburgh, PA. Everything came naturally - he laid down his first official tracks, and the rest is history. There, he discovered a unique style which is embedded in each of his verses to this day. LegenDerry possesses an extremely original and articulate flow, separated from the competition by his lyrical genius.
