Idrise is an R&B artist that not only exudes an exotic look and charm but also comes from an uncanny beginning. In addition to that, Idrise’s voice comes with a unique and and familiar R&B sound that came to be as product of his love for music of the 70’s, 80’s, and 90’s.
He grew up in the San Francisco Bay Area, where he began singing and dancing; all throughout middle school and high school in everything from show choirs to break-dance crews.
Soon after graduating high-school, he felt the need to be on stage again. He went on to back-up dance for a pop artist in Southern California, performing at different venues in the area; one such venue, being the House of Blues, in Hollywood.
Idrise earned a degree in Arabic studies and Information Technology, from a decorated career in the US Air Force. While stationed at Fort Meade, Maryland, his charms brought him to instant popularity after he stepped into the booth to record for the first time. This came as a result of raw talent, positive attitude, and his passion for music, not to mention his pride and work ethic. These, among many reasons, make him a “real-life” inspiration to many, and his music has come a long way to affecting emotions and life perspectives of his followers.
In 2013 he was stationed in Germany, where he was able to hit the MTV Bullet Charts (Urban) 3 times, had Universal (Turkey) sign and release a single in 2015, and in May 2016 a single reached the top 200 iTunes charts in Belgium.
In July 2016 he moved to Los Angeles, CA to reach for the stars in his home country, as he did while abroad, with an ultimate goal of inspiring the world to write their own destinies, and be the best versions of themselves that they can be.
