At 13 years old, his mother put him on a bus headed away from the cold streets of Chicago, and into the warm arms of his grandmother in Los Angeles, California. There, Dane (a.k.a., I’m Just Dane) sang in church, taught himself how play the piano, and followed his influences of Michael Jackson & Usher, until the music—turned into his music.
“…bring purpose back to today’s popular music.”
Now, this father and 50-hour/week FedEx driver uses whatever “spare time” he has in order to record the songs of both the joy and pain which fill both his debut EP, 2018’s Eighty6 & Rhodes, as well as his 2019 project, A Conduit Of Light.
Here, a Sisqo-esque vocal timbre flows over the top of a Ginuwine/Timbaland-era beat. When it’s all said and done, this celebration of male-independence is simple…
“I don’t really need’em
All these girls a mess
See I don’t really want no stress
I’m just gonna get rich…”
Sisqo meets Ginuwine…
