Tremayne Howe – ever since I was born, I’ve been surrounded and influenced by music. My mother and father who make up the group “Muzzy and The Rhythm Network” have always captured my attention through their musical upbringing, which has resulted into my love for music today.
Born in Montreal, Quebec, I grew up listening to a lot of diverse sounds. Anything from Jazz and R&B to Reggae and Hip-Hop and everything in between. From this exposure to different types of music, I grew almost another sense for it in regards to performing, producing and presenting it.
After I moved to Halifax in 1995 to go to Dalhousie University, I volunteered at the University radio station, CKDU, which was the only outlet for Hip-Hop on radio in Halifax. During my time at Dalhousie, I began to host the first and only independent R&B/Hip-Hop/Reggae parties in Halifax which became very large and successful and in turn exploded into continuous weekly events that featured visiting DJ’s such as Baby Blue Sound Crew, DJ Majess and the popular Montreal MC – Ricky D.
Following the success of these parties, I again sought out new challenges. After several collaborations with the Baby Blue Sound Crew, Choclair, Saukrates, Jully Black and the Razcals, I hosted a Hip-Hop concert in Halifax which turned out to be a major hit. Out of this arose my independent entertainment company Trobiz Entertainment.
During this time frame, I bean working on my own project that consisted of a CD in process that I not only produced and co-wrote, but performed on called “The Overlords”. Next, I did collaboration with EMI Music Canada on a CD called 44 N63W featuring artists including; The Ground Squad, Shy Luv, Bonshah, The Overlords, Jamie Sparks, Kaspa, Zander, as well as a few others. This CD was produced by Juno Award winner, 2Rude and Soul Fingaz. Following this, four of the artists including myself garnered the opening slot for Choclairs. Maritime Tour – “One Night Stand”.
Presently I’m working on another CD, continuing to produce more and more tracks, as well as keeping busy as an artist. As I mentioned before, the sky is the limit for my ideas.
