My love of music began at the age of 6 when I started to take formal piano lessons. Starting with classical music but growing to love all genres, I later found comfort in the song-writing process while away at Morehouse College. After graduating with 186 songs under my belt, talent show success with my original material, and an appearance as a Super Bowl half-time show dancer, I knew the time was ripe to pursue a career in music! Since then, I have gone on to create two major albums - "SolAce" and "RedempXn" - was dubbed R&B Performer of the Session at the New York International Music Festival, have toured as a keyboardist with two reggae bands, and have seen my songs appear in multiple independent movie sound tracks. I look forward to you joining me on this stage of my musical journey!
SolÅce has been working diligently on a five-song EP that he hopes to release in the Spring of 2022 through ScrilltownMO Records and Universal Music/ INgrooves International Distribution. He has collaborated with multiple artists on the project, working with producers from Chicago, Dallas, Canada, the Philippines, and Israel. The EP also features an awesome collaborative scope with featured artists from Chicago, Portland, and Montreal, Canada, garnering SolÅce over 70,000 streams on Spotify alone!
The lead single, "Better Man 4U" features local Chicago rapper M.A.N. Williamz and executive music production of K.F. Jacques. The music video, filmed at Chicago's historic Navy Pier, features SolÅce's energetic dance choreography debut and has already garnered nearly 50,000 Spotify Streams and over 23,000 video views collectively. The song was even made remixed to a Club House groove by Tokyo, Japan-based producer DJ S.Peak.
The follow-up single "Rearranging" is a moving male/ female duet ballad sung in the style of "Stuck With You" by Ariana Grande/ Justin Bieber or "One Sweet Day" by Mariah Carey/ Boyz II Men and has already met with great excitement, fan support, and critical acclaim, being positively reviewed in two prominent online music blogs.
SolÅce's third and current single "GlowdUp" is a club banger set to follow in the footsteps of its predecessors, as it is already a hit-in-the-making straight out the blocks! With a energetic rap feature by Portland artist Rekka and executive production by K.F.Jacques this pre-club anthem tells the story of SolÅce as he ignores the haters and confidently prepares for a night of uninhibited partying!
Still, all of this acclaim would not be possible without the love and support of SolÅce's over 15,000 followers and subscribers on Instagram, Facebook, YouTube, Spotify, and TikTok 💜 (see links in the footer, below)!
December 7, 2021. After some technical difficulties, in which we thought that SolÅce's latest track "GlowdUp" would not be released until January, we are happy to announce that everything worked out and this was the big release day after all!!
SolÅce's latest track is what he calls a "pre-club anthem with a message." On the surface it seems to be a song about a dude getting ready to go clubbing but the message behind it all focuses on ignoring the hate of others and converting their external negativity into inner positivity!
With an amazingly energetic rap feature by Portland-based artist Rekka and executive music production by the talented K.F. Jacques, this track is certain to be one of SolÅce's biggest hits to date.
Think we're exaggerating? Check the track out on your favorite streaming platform and let us know your thoughts!!
October 3, 2021. Today marked the time for the release of SolAce's latest song "Rearranging!" The song premiered at 7pm CST and was broadcast live via Facebook and YouTube. The response was magical and we are happy to see that the song is already touching many!
This ballad marks one of SolAce's most creative works to-date. It is a moving male/female duet that is a ballad sung in the tradition of "Stuck With You" by Ariana Grande/ Justin Bieber or "One Sweet Day" by Mariah Carey/ Boyz II Men. The song was recorded in three different countries: the U.S., Canada, and Israel, with vocalists, instrumentalists, and technicians within each!
The music video was no less creative, shot in a mixture of both black & white and color throughout the city of Chicago and starring a local lead actress.

Jacques.

July 25, 2021. The buzz for SolAce continues to reach new heights and this is partially because of the media attention being shown after the release of his new single "Better Man 4U."

The first show was that of Boston's "Itali-Echoes" broadcast as SolAce was interviewed by the lovely and talented Viviana Dragani. The second interview was conducted by the talented and hilarious Walil Archer as part of Atlanta's "The Real Rapp" radio show. Both interviews were conducted via ZOOM and are available on SolAce's YouTube Channel.
