Tru West

(Milwaukee, WI)
Genre: Soul/R&B

From creating remixes—or “Trumixes”— of popular songs to releasing her “Gift of Gab” eps I
and II, Milwaukee native Tru West continues to push the envelope for what it means to be “tru”
to yourself. Her undeniable talents and versatility has led her to artist activism, working with
local organizations, such as, Leaders Igniting Transformation, where she executively produced
a collaborative mixtape “From the Ashes, We Rise” that featured local artists–including, Genesis
Renji, Von Alexander, Nile, MoCity, Mudy, and more. There’s no denying Tru as an influential
artist in Milwaukee’s music scene. At the top of 2022, Tru teamed up with Kaylee Crossfire’s
Fuel Your Fire Music Academy to mentor aspiring young artists. Tru has taken the city by storm
with her success, including performing at Milwaukee Pridefest, winning the Beat the
Competition: Milwaukee Takeover, performing Bronzeville Fest, and curating her first event for
National Tequila Day at Casablanca (in honor of the singer’s latest single “Tequila”). Tru’s
evolution has been nothing short of divine, as she embraces her depth and vulnerability, she

strives to connect with listeners more personally in upcoming projects.
