"Sony A@R Rep"

Phone Message From A@R Rep:

Out of 64 entries Trifekta's unique style got them to the top 5 in the final round. Sony Rep's felt we had a very original stlye swagger west coast flavor , although they are currently looking for solo vocalist style artist. They said for your first entrie they regret they had to say no.

The Grey One

Brief History: Arthur Hardy has been doing music his whole life. He started early in his youth with choir through his church. Maybe that’s the reason why tones and rhythms are so easy to come by when asked to recite a phrase. Having a raspier street-style of singing, Grey blends well with the youth of Trifekta. Before that, he performed with the likes of DCP, LG Wise, and Brothaz Grimm. in the late 90’s. All of the artists were apart of Grapetree Records based out of TX. Grey is like the father figure of Trifekta. From his age to how he composes himself on stage. Trifekta acquired Grey thorugh his friend in 2006. He was brought to
The Diff’s studio in Milwaukie, OR as sort of a “music blind date”. Knowing Arthur could sing, and knowing The Difference could make beats, the two stayed in contact and became two of the three co-founders of Trifekta. If it’s smooth you
want, look no further. If it’s bounce you need, look no further. If it’s truth you seek,look no further. Grey is in fact the full package, but the way he sounds is far from rushed delivery.

Johnny Blaze

Brief History: Johnathan Leach grew up in San Francisco, CA until the age of ten. While in the Bay Area, his passion for music rapidly began to crescedo. He started out listening to country, rock, and rap, though the music that most inspired him were Bone Thugs N’ Harmony and Madonna. After living ten years in the city of pre-hyphy movement, he headed up North …to the Northwest that is, When H.S. began at Evergreen, he witnessed the common drive he and The Difference had instilled in one another. On August 1st, 2003 the group “Square Root” began consisting of the two emcees. Johnny harnessed his love for hip-hop and shared it with the world – one verse at a time. Presently, Johnny is more than a lyricist. He is a businessman. Shopping Trifekta’s music from venue to venue, the crew has been active and he is largely to do with it. Consistency in a spirit that never gives in, a heart that never gives up, and a mind that never sleeps. You can summarize him up well with an Albert Einstein quote, “Why put off what you can do today for tomorrow?”

The Difference

Brief History: Isaac started writing rhymes on internet hip-hop websites in the year 2000. After graduating from “textceeing”, he picked up a microphone, but not before making his own beats to go behind his vocals. In his senior year of H.S. at Evergreen in Vancouver, WA, he met John Leach (aka Blaze) and they began a group dubbed “Square Root”. The two recorded in Liss’ pool house in Milwaukie, OR. At the same time Liss was going to CCC (Clackamas Community College). While attending he earned his General Studies Degree as well as his Music Certificate. Taking Classes in Audio Engineering, Midi, Piano, Film Editing, Voice, and others, Liss rounded his musical background to prepare for the future. Since graduation in 2006, Isaac has produced albums for two upcoming artists in the Northwest, he has preformed numerous times locally with Trifekta, and just recently did a show in Hollywood, CA at Club Avalon with an aspiring artist based out of Portland. With Trifekta’s debut album entitled “No Matter What I Do” completed, Liss, Blaze, and Grey will knock down doors with a musical tsunami soon to hit the whole West Coast.
