About Trumaine Lamar
No stranger to the mic, this Nebraska born-Florida bred artist has been amongst musicians since the age of 5; able to pick up baselines to songs by ear and teach parts to others in his choir. A chance encounter with his brother’s friend would lead Tru to produce his first track by the age of 13.
Since then, he has been brewing up musical masterpieces as a producer, writer, and vocal artist. With relatable lyrics and supreme production to match, Tru captures the audience with his signature style. This has led him to share the stage with such artists as Chrisette Michele, Lalah Hathaway, Eric Darius, Kirk Franklin, Fred Hammond and most recently opening for Joe.
Lamar describes his latest project as “a concept record, speaking on different situations in which a guy has the opportunity to express things he kept to himself”, appropriate to the title, Things I Should’ve Told Her.
The mixtape transports classic soul while reverencing fellow soul samples from Flying Lotus, Tribe Called Quest, and the late producer J Dilla; constructing a soulful landscape with a classical tinge.
Inspired by artists such as Stevie Wonder, Musiq Soulchild, Brandy and Eric Dawkins to name a few; Trumaine Lamar is mounting amongst his peers as the artist to watch with this latest release.
You can catch Tru live in Pittsburgh alongside Brian McKnight and Chrisette Michele on July 30, 2011 for “An Intimate Evening” at Soldiers & Sailors Hall. He also spoils the Tampa Bay area every first Saturday with his croons at the Boomerang Martini Bar.
