2020, a year that has been exceptionally sad and depressing for all. It started with a strict lockdown all across the globe that went on for months until Covid-19-spread settled for some time. The year 2020, from the beginning, has given a very sad vibe and has taken with itself multiple renowned and loved personalities – leaving people sad and hopeless. Businesses suffered huge losses, some even shut completely, employees got laid off, and many who were jobless remained in the same state for most of the year. All these happenings, along with the physical barrier, made people turmoil. Depression, anxiety, and sadness were in the air.
People had lost the hope of being happy again. Being locked up in their houses, alone and away from their loved ones, created a very gloomy and apathetic aura. But there were a few people who tried to add elements of fun and joy to the quarantined life that everybody around the world was living. These people belonged to the entertainment industry. Zoom and Skype calls were on the rise. Celebrities group-calling each other and collaborating with their fellow artists brought a breath of fresh air. Among these artists was the emerging new talent ‘TR3AL’
TR3AL, has been in the American music industry for quite some time now and has over the years earned a good reputation for himself and received love and loyalty from his fans due to his unique approach to creating music.
Born in Santa Clara in California on April 28, 1983, TR3AL spent his early life with his original name Terrel Williams. TR3AL grew up in a town where listening to EDM was not a norm, and only a handful of people knew about it. TR3AL had been inclined towards music from an early age but did not particularly listen to EDM. It was when Steve Aoki, Avicii, and Don Diablo’s music rose to fame and spread all across the US like a wildfire. People all around the US and abroad were hooked to EDM like never before. Similar was the situation for TR3AL. For TR3AL, his magical moment of falling in love with EDM was during Tiesto’s concert. He loved the way EDM lifted his spirits and transported him to an illusory world. He was driven by Tiesto’s music and wanted to create something similar. He wanted to make people forget about their worries and groove to his music like their life relied on it.
“Dreams Don’t Work Unless You Do”
Making way into the music industry is not as easy as pie. One has to work relentlessly and keep releasing new music frequently to keep themselves relevant. TR3AL knew he needed a strong financial backup to step in and up his game in the music industry. He started off as a DJ, Mixing beats and experimenting with it attracted young TR3AL a lot. It was smart of him to choose a job that let him follow and practice his passion and, at the same time, be financially beneficial for him.
TR3AL used the perks of having an insanely creative mind and an immensely talented persona. While Djing, he sharpened his skill of creating sic beats and mind-boggling music drops. After months of practicing and stabilizing himself, TR3AL finally began working towards his first single.TR3AL treated his first music creation as a baby. From lyrics to music composition, to the beats, TR3AL had entirely submerged himself in it. His first single, ‘Forever’ was released on March 27, 2019. This track meant a lot to him and had a lot of sentiment attached to it being TR3AL’s first musical creation. The release of this track brought massive success with itself. The new and unusual combination of beats intrigued people to know about its creator. This song was a treat for EDM lovers. TR3AL swiftly made his place in this genre and garnered lots of admiration and love from his new fan base.
The positive response from his fans and the music industry motivated TR3AL to create his music label. Soon after releasing his first track, he launched his music label by the name ‘XPERIENCE R3AL R3CORDS’. TR3AL did not want his fans to yearn for more while taking his sweet time to create another magical music creation. Instead, he believed in being consistent and released another track, ‘Oh Yeah’ under his record label. This song was much anticipated by his fans and became a hit as soon as it was released. Although not listed on the Billboards, his songs were listened to by many far and wide. TR3AL achieved fame, recognition, and success in a very short time, which many fail to do.
TR3AL’s love, dedication, and passion for music and the drive to be on the top led him to make tracks that brought life to dull parties. His music could lift people’s moods and lighten any gloomy day. Being mindful of the effect EDM had on people’s moods, TR3AL came up with an extremely creative idea during the pandemic.
As the world had shut down, there was no surety as to when things would go back to the way they were. There was certainly no confirmation about when music festivals and concerts would take place. TR3AL was set aback by the unforeseen gap that had come, but there was nothing that he could do about it. So, he decided to use the limited resources that he and his fans have and came with the clever idea of arranging a Virtual Laser Show.
TR3AL’s undying love of music did not let him stop even during lockdowns. He disliked the idea of being idle, and so created a brand new song that he recorded at his house with very few resources. This song was inspired by the conditions 2020 had put the world in and was called ‘Quarantune.’ His fans were surprised by the song’s unexpected release and appreciated his efforts of putting a smile on their faces during the hard times. His announcement of arranging the Virtual Laser Show somewhere between October and November 2020 has created hype among the young individuals and has kept them waiting eagerly.
TR3AL is planning to release a couple of songs this spring and hopes to be closer to his dream of performing in the huge stadium in the upcoming year. This is just the beginning for this young and energetic talent, and there surely lots more to come!
Keep shining TR3AL!
