Raised on a steady diet of jazz, soul, and his mom’s Boogie Funk collection; multi-instrumentalist Trü studied opera, musical theater, and composition. Naturally drawn to the primal energy of the club scene, Trü first made a name for himself as a performer, promoter, and DJ. Trü is also the former frontman of Post Punk/Funk outfit Magic Mouth.
Chanti Darling's upcoming RNB Vol 1. features numerous collaborations with producer Damon Boucher. It also sees Trü collaborating with Natasha Kmeto. The first single to come off of the record is Casual featuring The Last Artful, Dodgr which premiered via Afropunk on April 18th, 2018.
Aesthetically, Chanti Darling uses 80’s retro-futurist iconography to create "THE RNB"- a place of neon lights and palm fronds, washed in the pastels of dusk and dawn. Together, Chanti Darling is undeniable and immersive. Chanti Darlings energetic live shows have placed him on stages with NAO, Nancy Whang, and Hercules & Love Affair; while his approach to songwriting has gotten him features in Afro Punk, Vice, and Dope Magazine.
