As a child and teenager, he performed in church and the High School Choir. He also showed an interest in the written word form of poetry. It didn’t take long for the young man to combine his love for singing with his poetic skills, and he began to compose original songs.
He combines his poetic and lyrical talents with a soulful voice, he has forged his own unique sound. Crediting a wide range of influences, including Gavin DeGraw, John Legend, Yelawolf, and Son Little. Soultru credits his versatility as his strongest musical attribute.
