Born and raised on Detroit's eastside, poverty was life and a strive to achieve what dreamers believe was all but easy for me. Led by my mother I was baptized in church and started singing at the age of five. Becoming a young man the streets quickly became a home for me. Seperating myself from what truly kept me protected and alive. My relationship with God. Mourning the death of my father in 2001, I stood alone in darkness. Although I lived a troubled life my passion for music still remains. As I make my suttle approach to share my words of passion, the music world awaits ones talent as a vocalist, a songwriter, composer, producer, entertainer,and as an artist. My name, is Monteris.
