St. Pete, Fla.-Just when you thought that soul in R&B music was long lost and forgotten, multi – talented singer / songwriter / producer D.Wyte comes in the nick of time to put romance and maturity back into music with the release of his sultry lead single “Body Talk.”
A slow, grinding groove accented by D.Wyte pouring his heart out over a thumping 808 drum track, “Body Talk” adequately sets the mood for any romantic encounter. “Simply put, it’s where desire meets passion,” explains D.Wyte.
The steamy lead single is just a taste of what D.Wyte has to offer from his forthcoming Elitascend-released EP Stages of a Man set to be released this Fall. Featuring feel-good testaments like “Don’t Tell,” “Wait For Me,” “Friend Request” and “Proposal,” Stages of a Man boasts soul-stirring stories of men’s rites of passage to manhood and maturity.
“Real music never needs to make a comeback, because it never goes out of style,” D.Wyte contends. “Real music is timeless.”
Well on his way to making a lasting impression in the world of music, the rapidly emerging St. Petersburg, Fla.-based crooner brandishes a style of rhythm and soul that places him in a category of his own. His musical journey was first cultivated in his family’s living room as a child. Growing up, D.Wyte listened to his parents constantly playing the soulful sounds of Atlantic Starr, Jodeci, Mint Condition, Boyz II Men, The O’Jays, Frankie Beverly & Maze and Luther Vandross.
Every night in high school, he and his friends would gather together and sing in harmony. Before long, they formed R&B group Fanta C and in no time, had become one of the hottest, most-well-known acts in the Tampa Bay area. After graduating from high school, however, D.Wyte served in the United States Army for three years. When he returned home, he joined a well-known local rap group, Stylish Family.
After meeting with mild success, he was ready to set-out on his own so D.Wyte ventured off to pursue a solo career, but his other love, football, shared his focus. D.Wyte played semi-professional football in Florida for eight years.
During his years on the gridiron, he was named offensive line of the year and selected to the Florida Football Alliance All-Star Team five times. In 2012, he won a league champion as a member of the Orlando Rage. After this accomplish, he decided to focus solely on music.
Since then, D.Wyte’s musical talents have blessed him with the opportunity to perform overseas as well as open shows for the likes of Faith Evans, Bobby Valentino and Anthony Hamilton.
Now, D.Wyte compiles all of his lessons learned in music, accomplishments and God-given gifts to bless us all with his forthcoming EP Stages of a Man set to be released this Fall. Guided by lead single “Body Talk,” the EP is real-life composition of stories and situations that men traverse on the road to maturity.
