We caught up with Daze Dontrelle for an interview…

What inspired you to get into music?
When i first moved to back to Louisiana, as a child, i was able to witness a relative produce an instrumental. I was about 14/15 at the time.The energy i felt is truly indescribable. But it was that moment i realized that music is what i NEEDED to do full time. That moment is when i fell in love.

How would you describe your music?
I would describe my music in a few ways. I sing about different things. Different things or better yet emotions that you feel. To some it up, a vibe people haven’t felt in a long time.

What would you say is your recording and song writing style?
My style is freelance. Even though it’s written, i don’t think about it, if that makes sense. I just write. Its pure emotion. So once again, a VIBE.

Where would you like to see your music career in 5 years time?
In 5 years time, id like to see myself in a position to take care of my self and the people around me whom i love dearly. Thats what this is about, ya’ know? . Using your gift to bless the ones around you. Whether it’s through the music, or financial stability, i want to be that “blessing” .

Where can music fans listen your music?
You can listen to my music ANYWHERE! Just search “The Real Daze Dontrelle” !!!
