Singer, songwriter, producer, as well as multiple rolls in film audio, and graduated with a Bachelors in Science for Audio Production. I call myself, the young #QuincySkones. I’m a underground r&b/soul artist with a conscious spiritual mind, and the ladies say I got the juice. From the birthplace of the famous Motown sound, #Detroit Michigan with all the heart necessary I wear the city’s influence with pride and I feel like I am a lion. My natural musical abilities were evident at the early age of 6. I was surrounded by a musical family church environment, my first love was the drum, but I couldn’t resist the ebony and ivory keys, and they couldn’t keep me quiet, so I had to sing.
I did a lot of singing and playing instruments growing up in church , so it got me ready for other stages and crowds. I got my start into the music industry/reality tv on MTV’s “Making The Band 4”. After I became a member of a Chicago based group called Kwiet Storm. During that time we signed with Usher’s mom, Jonetta Patton on Jpat Records. I was able to receive artist development and vocal training with Aj Alexander and his team as well as Jan Smith or " Momma Jan". So I've had a pretty good amount of artist development from some the greats.
Now on my solo journey, I’ve been grinding and I releasing music throughout this time. In 2014 I released my first EP. Executive produced by one of my mentors, & mega producer Prolyfic. I received my first placement with another one of my mentors the infamous producer, Soundtrakk. Who helped me place a hook I wrote for Stally’s song on Maybach Music’s Selfmade 3 - Paris (Feat Omarion & Rockie Fresh), and more to come.
With support from my hometown peers, also receiving a lot of love from my live shows in Detroit as well as the people I’ve reached from traveling and social media. I’ve been earning my respect & notoriety by doing features, and staying consistent with any music that has my name attached.
That’s got me featured in online numerous blogs sites, and I've worked with some of everybody in the industry. The list goes on, I hate to name drop but you can find it all on google or your digital stores.
Being a student has opened my mind to more musical possibilities, like scoring movies, sound design, and being a producer. So I feel my longevity in the business combined with influences, & my music background. All I have to do is keep going and I will reach a wide range of audiences, supporters. I hope my music crosses over to music lovers of all genres including yourself.
My latest project “One Night Stand” is available on iTunes, Spotify, Amazon and more. You can also listen on https://soundcloud.com/drey-skonie along with more music.
