WHO IS TREZ FALSETTO?
Bull City Native turns dreams to reality
North Carolina is notably known as the state that is home to many spectacular singers. from Anthony Hamilton, Sunshine Anderson, Kellie Pickler, Fantasia Barrino to even the great K-Ci & Jojo (Jodeci), in any genre, you will find many famous and successful artists that all have at least one thing in common other than a great voice and that is the Tarheel state as their birthplace. However, Durham has become a consistent, unveiling location for the underground sound and independent grinders on the rise. If the North Carolina music scene were to be broken down by region, lyrical content, and fanbase reach, there would be a hand full of artists that all originated in a few of the scattered cities and counties that create the great Tarheel state. Durham native Quantre Via, known by his stage name as Trez Falsetto, is notoriously known for catching attention as an Instagram sensation before taking the state by storm. His popular #FalsettoFridays became a hit with the ladies where 30-second videos were sent in & posted of beautiful women from all over the Carolinas singing along with his newest release titled "Blow". It all started as a one-time major college basketball prospect, who was diagnosed with a heart condition and forced to put his b-ball sneakers away for good his senior year of high school. To fill the void of not playing ball, Trez decided to audition for a talent showcase at his school. Not only did he get accepted, he won. This opened a door of possibilities and he’s now on the cusp of taking R&B music to unexplored realms of greatness.
In 2015, Falsetto signed to independent label 5 Star Empire. He released his first single "Used To" following up with his new single "Blow" featuring Epic Records recording artist Swift. He began to hit the road performing the national anthem at local colleges then to a 15-city HBCU tour along the east coast performing beside acts like Cardi B, Tank, 2 Chainz, and 21 Savage. His talents has taken him as south as Florida A&M University all the way up through the DMV to Kentucky. In 2017 he won R&B artist of the Year at the 10th Annual Carolina Music Awards.
After completing the tour, Falsetto released Just Because which took his millennial fans back to the euphoric time in music with covers of R. Kelly-You Remind Me of Something, Ginuwine-Pony, and Wayne Wonder-No Letting Go. For the new schoolers, there are rhythmic remixes like Drake-Hotline Bling & Rihanna-Work mixed with original songs that will reach all lovers of R&B.
By the end of 2017, Trez Falsetto was no longer a local singer from Carolina, he was a brand. Radio stations and publications began to get a wift of the R&B sensation. He was featured in Straight Official magazine, The Hype Magazine, Press Tha Mag, and more!
