Whether you are celebrating a birthday or an anniversary, hosting a major event or just want to party, Tru Sol can provide the best in live entertainment. Now that you know the history, meet the people represented by the name, "Tru Sol."
The lady of Tru Sol, Sheryta Spears, has been gracing stages all over the Grand Strand since the mid 90's as a member of the acappella group, Cymp'l Touch. She was born in Latta, SC where her sultry voice took flight. Audiences can see and feel her passion from the first note to the last. Music from the soul is definitely a driving force in her life.
The founder of Tru Sol is guitarist, Dorian Samuel, (bottom middle on pic) born in Jersey City, NJ. Dorian is a veteran performer and has performed in the acapella group, Dejour. He initially start playing the bass at a young age. His love for melody and rhythm inspired him start practicing on the acoustic guitar. His devotion to the band displays that his overall passion for soul music is indeed true.
Born in Kingstree, SC, Merrell Samuel, a bassist since the age of 14, spent most of his life playing the smoothest instrument and therefore carrying the groove. His distinct musical style and melodic vocals leave people wondering, “how did he do that?” Being the youngest member of Tru Sol in no way means he's lacking in the soul department.
Currently working on original CD.
