VOYCE* remains different from the crowd, a notion he makes clear in his upcoming debut album, “Alone In A Crowd”. His creativity stems from the simple fact that his music is derived from him, entirely. A Montreal based singer/songwriter/producer, able to reproduce his emotions in his musical arrangements.
Back in early 2008, VOYCE* won the Regional MIX 96 Radio Star Songwriting Competition, which was awarded to him for his song, “Far Too Long”, in which he combined a hard synthetic driven instrumental, deep emotional vocals and a powerful message. ” Far Too Long” to me, was a song that spoke strongly about my frustration with the music industry, one that stifles artistic growth and enforces taking the safe road. My message was, stay true to who you are. Winning for that song was important. Everything changed after that; doors now opened where they were once closed “.
Since then, VOYCE* has not only continued to produce his own music, but also for many artists, ranging from Pop, R&B, Rock, Dance to Hip Hop genres. His success drives him to push beyond his previous capabilities, never satisfied. A thirst for growth compels him.
At a young age, VOYCE* has managed to earn the respect of the industry, and his momentum is forever ongoing. If he were to choose a single word to describe his journey, it would be Perseverance. ” Nothing in life comes easy, especially when trying to make a dream a reality. But as long as you believe in yourself, work hard enough and push through the tough times, you will be unstoppable “.
2010 saw the loss of his mother and with it, he lost a part of himself. ” There isn’t a day that I don’t think about you… There’s isn’t a day I don’t cry… But I need to be strong, I want to always make you proud. I love you mummy. ” In the bitter sweet irony of life, it is in this same year that VOYCE* got signed to Nashville, Tennessee based record label, Step Five Records.
