Singer and songwriter, Dante Wuz Here was born in florida and raised in hip hop capital of the south, Atlanta. He’s very talented and vocal in many ways.
During his meeting with veteran Debra Killings jump-started his love for the recording studio and writing songs. The turning point for the ambitious singer occurred when his former manager took him to RCA Records resulting in a recording contract and subsequently his debut album Inferno which featured powerhouse production from Bryan Michael Cox, Organized Noize, and Allstar but was unreleased.
Stepping aside to hone his writing skills he began collaborating with other musicians, ultimately landing him in Tokyo where he created an album with the punk indie band, The Lost CTRL entitled Electric Mayhem. In 2018 he became a Juno Award Nominee with a song contribution (the single Disturbed) for Indigenous Pop Artist, Iskwé’s album, The Fight Within Indigenous Music Album Of The Year.
DanteWuzHere’s silky, soulful vocals are woven throughout his highly anticipated EP Paradiso led by his plea to the world, the gritty bass and synth-driven single Heaven Help Us. Heaven Help Us is reminiscent in importance to the cries and messages to society in such songs as Marvin Gaye’s “What’s Going On,” John Lennon’s “Imagine” and Kanye West’s “Jesus Walks.” The currently crazed world in which we live is the perfect inspiration for DanteWuzHere’s follow up new single Follow Me. The soothing transient track acts as a solid foundation for the subtly impactful melody and lyrics. The song successfully traverses multiple musical lanes. Written by Ryan Toby and produced by Jamie Helms, Follow Me harkens back to the days of Terence Trent D’Arby and proves that the past is sometimes the best way forward.
When not in the studio, DanteWuzHere can be found modeling and acting, appearing in major ad campaigns, films and has been featured in fashion magazines across the country and internationally.
