DEMETRUEST is a singer-songwriter from Chicago, IL. He attended The Choir Academy of Chicago, a performing arts school where he would continue to develop his craft working with the likes of Twista, Kathleen Battle, Jonita Lattimore, David Foster, Randy Jackson, among many others. Fresh off 'The Telefone Tour' with rapper Noname, Demetruest is ready to step forward and make his mark in the industry. DEMETRUEST's sound is comparable to Luther Vandross, Maxwell, Beyoncé, Anita Baker, Frank Ocean, Musiq Soulchild, Ben Harper, Lianne La Havas, and most recently Bibi Bourelly.
He is drawn to other fellow singer-songwriters who tie in soul with a clear and strong perspective on life. What makes DEMETRUEST different is the way in which he ties his love for theatre into his music, each story being an actual life occurrence or curated from the depths of his imagination. Redirected, his first official EP, is set to release FALL of 2017. DEMETRUEST is eager to show what he’s been working on, and opening up about his personal experiences in love, loss, and sexuality.
