Career

Early years

He started his musical career at the age of twelve after forming a collective called Sosa Entertainment with Rafroman and Jaime Menezes amongst others[2]. Just under two years later the group split up due to a key member being sent to prison and the majority wanting to pursue solo paths[3].

The self-taught studio producer and engineer was named by RWD Magazine as "a talent to watch" when he was just thirteen. Around the same time he started to work heavily with Nu Brand Flexxx and done a promotional music video for 'Hits Like Us featuring Striver of the group and Aston Merrygold (lead vocalist of the boyband JLS)', although they shot a video for this, it never was streamed on television.

Starting Afresh: 2008-2009

Tre shot another promotional video for 'London (Feat. Boya Deemarko & Vidal)' in December 2008. Shortly after Tre was featured on Ras Kwame's BBC 1Xtra HomeGrown show.[4]

In March 2009, Tre was approached by Nike to model for their Spring/Summer collection but declined in order to fulfil other commitments and announced 'London' will be on broadcast on both MTV Base and Channel AKA by the end of July, once his exams were out of the way. The same month he co-founded the production company Melodic Bass, with old manager Jackie Caters.

According to a blog posted on Tre's Bebo page in June 2009, he was working on his first studio album.[5]

Tours

Tre has not been on any full dated tours yet, however he has performed with and opened for various artists both in the United Kingdom and abroad for acts such as N-Dubz, Taio Cruz, Bow Wow and Lupe Fiasco.
