Getting To Know the Background Of Atlanta R&B Artist Trūst

Getting To Know the Background Of Atlanta R&B Artist Trūst

Tell us about your background getting to where you are today?

Growing up, my dad and uncle formed an R&B duo “Dukes of Daville”, and I pretty much followed their footsteps from that moment on. Right after high school, all I did was music. I stayed in as many studios as I could get into and eventually got my first placement with NLA ft. Migos “No Days Off”. That connection led to a string of placements at RCA where I wrote “Creep” and “Gold Wrappers” for B.Smyth and “Heat”, “Picture Me Rollin’”, and “Blow It In The Wind” for Chris Brown

Where are you from? When did you start music?

I’m from Atlanta. I started writing and making music around 10 years old

What is the most challenging thing you have overcome in your life?

The most challenging thing I’ve had to overcome in life was insecurity and believing in myself. It took me a while to feel validated and that I was good enough to be successful. I realized that my biggest enemy was my own negative thoughts and honestly I’m better now because I went through that season

How did you get into music?

My mom sings as well. She would always play Lauryn Hill’s “Miseducation”. I fell in love with the melodies and musicianship. Especially at church, I would sit in the pew right in front of the drummer so I could mimic him with my pencils. It was always in my blood

Are you currently signed or independent?

I’m Independent

Who inspires you the most musically?

Kanye West

What do you want people to take away after listening to your music?

That R&B is not dead. There’s nothing wrong with feel-good music that heals the soul. I sing about love and I understand that not only is there a thriving audience for it, but the world needs it. My music feels nostalgic but also contemporary at the same time. There is something for everyone when you listen to me

What is the purpose/reason driving you to pursue music?

I just want to make music that makes people feel good. If I can inspire an entire generation then I’ve accomplished what I’ve set out to do

What is your greatest achievement as a musician?

Writing “Heat” for Chris Brown ft. Gunna is my greatest achievement musically so far

Do you produce your own music? If not, who do you work with?

I do produce my own music but I also worked with Rio, Jaded, and Ayo & Keyz on my last project

Who is one artist you wish you could work with?

I’d love to work with Rihanna

Tell us about any new music you have coming out? 

My single “Soon Come” produced by Ayo, Keyz & Vibe just dropped November 13th. My first LP “FEEL” releases on November 27th

What does a day inside your shoes look like?

Pretty chill, unless I’m working out. Even then it doesn’t get too bad

Anything else you want the audience to know about you?

I’m also an actor. I was in the last season of “The Quad” on BET playing the role of Barron and most recently filmed a few episodes of “Greenleaf” on OWN as Cameron
