Terrell M. Bailey “DJ Relleo”
From: All Around The World
Key Tracks: Baby Girl, Poison and Love Issues
In little over three years, Terrell rise to prominence has been remarkable, his debut of “Love Issues”, which showcased his underground approach, fusing RnB with a Latin vibe into something with more sensual and full of flavor, which left the audience wanting more. He began making music at the age of 16, initially gospel and RnB, but that eventually developed in to a new wave project “RnBachata” over the course of a decade, which sparked interest from listeners all around the south region part of the states. Known for his broad range of inventive “RnB” music that nimbly straddles minimal, progressive and unique forms of Bachata, his sound isn’t easily pigeonholed, but signature elements appear throughout his back catalogue, emotive melodic development, unique incidental sound usage, and his regular foray in using Latin styled drums and percussion, which combine to fuel his continually evolving sound. With multiple of projects in works, this is only the beginning. "Relleo” has a mission and he is going to do whatever it takes to make sure that mission is accomplish.
