We had the good fortune of connecting with ImTRU and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi ImTRU, what makes you happy? Why?
That’s an easy question MUSIC absolutely any and everything about it makes me happy i eat breathe dream and sleep music its in my blood helps me get by day to day without it i have no idea where I would be or who i would become and ive came to the realization that i am MUSIC

Can you open up a bit about your work and career? We’re big fans and we’d love for our community to learn more about your work.
:I am a r&b and soul artist and what sets me apart with my music is the vibes its all about the vibes i love telling stories about love in my music lets people know that its actually still possible and that all people are not out to get something from you its some of us who actually truly still value that and i imput that into my music with a little twist of atmospheric tracks and melodic melodies and harmonies in my lyrics its a dreamy space vibe and i love it

: Atthe point of my career now i am most proud of growth i have been doing music in some form of fashion my entire life started out in the church singing with the choir and began playing drums as well and eventually breaking out and joining a band where i was the background singer for a few years then becoming the drummer it was all an amazing experience for me all aspects from being in church to being in a band helped me musically and taught me so many things about how i should approach things and how to create music in my own way

: And no it has not been easy but I expected that because all things that you want to be successful at do not come easy its not just about having one quality its about learning and havinh every quality possible to get to where you wanna be you can never stop learning from anyone and i take head to that

: I want the world to know that Imtru_dareal is going to bring something fresh and different to the music industry im a hard worker and very serious about my craft and have nothing but love for the music business just ready to take on the workd and become GREAT

Any places to eat or things to do that you can share with our readers? If they have a friend visiting town, what are some spots they could take them to?
Some of my favorite spots in the city i must say first is Flavas Bar it has a nice grown and sexy vibe it looks amazing inside and the music is good they have open mic nights karaoke and different theme nights of that nature so you can always enjoy a nighy out there

Another place i would say is the strip downtown is nice as well you can walk the strip and just get a little taste of whats going on on second fridays in the city they have art walk downtown and skate night which they turn the downtown area into a big skating rink with lights a dj and good vibes so thats one thing i definitely think people should check out as well
