After being a part of the club classic, "you'll never find," which ended Up on Funk Master Flex's "60 minutes of funk, volume 4,"which sold 500,000 +units in the U.S; the group In Essence knew they had something Special.

At the forefront of this five man group is a talented young man who goes by the name "Dru." After winning the Canadian Juno award and a Much Music Award in 2004 and touring Europe consistently, Dru is now ready to make his mark in the industry as a solo artist.

Dru's influences include: Marvin Gaye, Donnie Hathaway, Stevie Wonder, Donelle Jones, D'angelo and JAY-Z to name a few. With such talent and versatility, it is no wonder that Dru is receiving the rapid attention of various major US labels.

Dru has managed to maintain his drive, talent and humbleness, but yet his unquestionable ability to create and master a style of music that is simply described as R&B with a touch of old and new school sound and a subtle but infectious street edge.
