PR: Virginia Emcee Gearing Up for Release of "InVitro"
(Virginia Beach, Virginia) -- “I’m just a black man trying to see the light in the tunnel.” Much holds true to this statement for Eyerone (Virginia Beach, VA) as both a person and an artist. It is from this human approach that each song is individually crafted & released. Eyerone (pronounced “Irony”) is a rapper who hails from the suburbs of the resort city of Virginia Beach, Virginia; home to successful artists such as Timbaland, The Neptunes, The Clipse, and more. As the son of a Navy father, Eyerone was afforded the opportunity to live overseas for several years, which helped cultivate him & broadened his horizons and perspectives. Returning to Virginia Beach with a broadened focus, he was able to refine his creativity and talent for short stories & poetry into lyrics that would later manifest into full-length songs.
Inspired by the likes of the representatives of his state (Teddy Riley, Timbaland, Missy Elliot, The Neptunes, The Clipse, Skillz, Chris Brown), the sounds of various regions of the United States (early 80s-90’s East Coast Rap [Rakim, Slick Rick, Notorious B.I.G] early to mid-90’s West-Coast Rap, The Midwest [Bone Thugs n Harmony/Twista] and the vibe of all around good music, Eyerone aims to relate to the “Average Joe” while maintaining a commercial feel. His rhymes have been described as “no-frills”, “authentic”, and “true to life.” With a passion for wordplay & storytelling, Eyerone strives to take hip-hop listeners & fans alike back to a time in Hip Hop where things were “normal” and felt “right.” Eyerone aspires to have listeners take an auditory journey with him with the release of his two upcoming projects InVitro (May 2012) and Rhyme & Reason (November 2012). He hopes you join him as he aims for that ever-fleeting light at the end of the tunnel!
Eyerone has partnered with media and marketing company, Revo Media to release his upcoming project, InVitro on May 8th. InVitro will be Eyerone’s first solo project. So with the upcoming release Revo Media will be releasing songs and visuals so the listener can really understand who Eyerone is. The InVitro project will be released through multiple platforms and will be distributed digitally. Eyerone and Revo Media would love to get your support on this project since we feel it’s a great project filled with thought-provoking content.
