What to Expect
An awesomely nice vibe for any environment, wedding, bachelorette party, happy hour, where a female solo artist can be appreciated. Audience participation and interaction.
(link hidden)VINE or DeVINE, as she loves to be called is an emerging Jacksonville, Florida based singer-songwriter-poet who’s lyrical and vocal style stir up an influence reminiscent of musicians such as Floetry, Jill Scott, and (link hidden)ie.
DeVINE jokes that if Prince and Jill Scott could have created a love-child it would have been her! A singer since she could remember and a songwriter since she entered puberty, DeVINE found herself drawn to all types of music, from R&B to Techno and anything in between.
After working countless hours in several studios around the city and lending background vocals for numerous local artists, she was chosen to perform with Psycster (a local Hip-Hop recording artist), to headline for Ja Rule, Mr. Cheeks, and Khia. And most recently performing with 2Chainz, Chrisette Michelle and others! She met Al Ross, an arranger and producer with 33 1/3 Productions, who eventually introduced her to Tony White, another talented Jacksonville native, who would become her mentor and self-proclaimed biggest fan. Over the next ten years, the two of them would collaborate by writing and arranging their own music.
Recently, DeVINE wrote/co-wrote three songs that appeared on T. White's debut CD, Street Love. She also recorded and performed the CD's intro, "Honeydripper Lady" and was featured on "Rather B" another popular song from the CD. The album is still currently available on iTunes for purchase.
In late 2010, DeVINE finally decided to embark on her debut project. A decade in the making, she carefully selected poems written for what she still hopes will be her first book, to be a part of her spoken word project. After completion, DeVINE along with a few others from TyTeWork Entertainment, quickly realized that there was very little exposure for the type of music they created. Armed with only an idea and ProTools, she decided to form her own genre of music, affectionately named Pornetry, due to its infusion of intimacy-based spoken word with smooth melodies. To put it simply, it is Erotica set to music. Literoticism, another term coined by (link hidden)VINE, is the ability to create and/or heighten sexual pleasure through literature.
(link hidden)VINE is excited to share "SoulBareHer" with the world. Once (link hidden)VINE's project is unveiled, the temperatures in Florida may get a tad bit hotter thanks to this seductive entertainer.
