iHuman Studios: The TNT Sessions – Vntge

Sunday, June 6
performed by Vntge

Somebody say, ‘Different’? Vntge is the alias of Nigerian born / Canadian based rising star Gibson Wali, whose musical fusions of Afro beats, RnB, soul, pop, dance, and other elements have translated into modern-time bangers. With songs like “In Da Morning”, “Odeshi”, “Kilode”, “Lowkey Man”, and other Vntge has vehemently proven that his vibes are killer vibes, or like he calls them ‘Vibes on Killi Killi”. Stay tuned for more Vntge. Love.

performed by Jayden Paz

Never have folk and blues met in a sweeter union as now. With just a guitar and soaring vocals, Jayden brings emotions to life while making you tap your feet. Drowned in sweeping melodies, his lyrics both move and challenge the listener. Jayden represents the very best of talent and resilience that Edmonton can offer.

iHuman Studios: The TNT Sessions – Trebla

Trebla - ihuman youth society

Sunday, June 13
performed by Trebla

Trebla has been rapping since he was 13 – mostly free styling for fun – but really started taking it seriously around 16. Trebla’s style matches catchy melodies and ‘singalong’ hooks with sarcastic/aggressive lyrics over boombap/poppin’ beats. His lyrics are filled with messages of accountability and owning your mistakes.

TREBLA can be searched anywhere you stream music (iTunes, Apple Music, Spotify, Napster, deezer, tidal, etc.) or on YouTube = TREBLA_Music.
