Bio

There is a congolese proverb that says,

"No matter how long the night, the day is sure to come"


This proverb embodies the journey of Tres. Born and raised as an orphan in the Democratic Republic of Congo , Tres
had a nomadic life; moving from the couch of hostels to the harsh reality of the streets. While many of his counterparts
fell to the same demise; Tres wanted to be different. Having observed the pain of the people and the violence that ever
so plagued his area, he wanted to help.


He acknowledged that he could make a change and figured the only solution would be to share a different message, one
that would seep through their present pain. He wanted to bring some joy in a place where such a thing was foreign.
Overall he wanted to make a difference!


At the age of nine, self discovery brought a solution to Tres and he realized that when he would sing, he would capture
the attention of the people in his village. In this time, this became a boy's dream and Tres concluded that this will be his
life pursuit. Such dreams however couldn't be actualized in his present environment. With ongoing political violence in
his area, Tres made the bold decision to leave DR Congo at the age of 16, to pursue his dream and begin his musical
journey.


In 2009, in an unexpected move, Tres performed for Prince William at Centerpoint Hostel. It was a half done
performance which was enough to impress Prince William who later invited him to perform again at Clarence House.
This was a breakthrough for Tres. This opportunity into the spotlight, landed appearances on the Nelson̢۪s show, Sky
News and This Morning followed.


Shortly after, he signed his first record deal with Roundhouse Records in 2010. Since then, he has supported The Black
Keys while earning the nomination for Best Male UK based Afro/Caribbean Act of 2010 at the BEFFTA Awards.


In recent times, Tres musical ambitions continue to grow working with world renowned writers affiliated with the likes
of Adele, Florence and the Machine, Santigold, Rihanna, Mikky Ekko, Alex Clare, Tom Odell, Jessie Ware, Ed
Sheeran, Paolo Nutini to name a few. This expansion in this new territory has been lifted under new management. With
new releases scheduled for 2017, Tres is currently working on his new album under the direction of Plum Music.


In his own words: " For me, it was never about the popularity , it was about the music. My joy is that I get to share it".
