Dretonio Biography
Dretonio (Singer, Lyricist and songwriter)

The whole story all began at a tender age of 8 with Dretonio always listening to music in and out of the studio, singing his father’s and Michael Jackson’s songs with his sister singer Gina Marie. Professionally, it started when Dretonio entered talent shows and showcases in and around London to help build confidence. In 1995, at the age of 11 listening to a lot of Rap music he took a liking to MC’ing to jungle as he found it as a channel to express the world around him, a place that he is not ashamed to explore with his audience from an angle that can only be described as positive and insightful.

His energy comes alive in his speaker thumping, hard hitting rapping whilst having you chilling out and winding down to his soulful singing, always carrying a positive vibe.

Named Tower the great by his peers for his early inspirational rhymes, Dretonio’s first national exposure performance to a huge audience was at Stanmore College where he took the crowd by storm. Dretonio continued to sing cover songs at shows as well as MC’ing on DJ sets with friends, until at the age 15 when he wrote a song titled ‘I believe’. This song opened his mind to creativity and inspired him to achieve more.

In the year 2000, Dretonio continued his education to college to study Information Technology and Business for two years at Uxbridge College, then Sound Engineering with CMS Music. Keen to learn more about the industry, Dretonio attended a Music Business and Management course at ECAB (Eastside records) in east London in 2004. Working on the UK Showcase at UK as co - host and an artist performing every week was a great way to establish him on the UK urban scene, which eventually opened many doors. He began to perform at several popular London events and venues including Bar Rhumba with 1xtra's Mista Jam, Kof (urbeatz), Nutty P, Twissman, Aggro and many more.

Dretonio had a massive number 1 in the USA DJ Masspool chart with 'Now Everybody Stand In Line' May 2012 (As seen on ITV News and featured in the London Evening Standard). He has been tipped as one of the hottest artists to watch out for in 2012. With five mixtapes, an EP and a music catalogue of over 150 songs to his name, Dretonio is now focusing on his official début album 'Eye Of The Storm' with the debut single ‘Rock The World’ where he passionately delivers a rhythmic rap verse over a hefty four-on-the-floor up-tempo club beat produced by another promising young talent, published artist J.O. and featuring his vocals.

Dretonio was nominated in the 'Best Male Act' category in the well respected BEFFTA Awards 2011 alongside chart-toppers Tinchy Stryder, Sway, Loick Essien and 'Best Urban Act' at the Exposure Music Awards 2011. With past support from BBC1Xtra, this track has had spot plays on BBC Radio Bristol and Somerset, featuring on BBC iPlayer and play-listed on Radio Cardiff, North Manchester FM, TD1 Radio, Image Radio to name but a few...
