The T-Quest Show: Serena Deena Interview

International Superstar is what comes to mind when I think of Serena Deena. She is a star that is shining! Having the pleasure of interviewing her, hearing how professional she is, down to earth, loving caring, hard working and hearing her awesome music was so epic. Her style of music is unique and I could see her on the charts soon.

Serena Deena

As I write this article I’m smiling because I’m happy I was introduced to Serena Deena. As soon as she called into my radio show, I knew in the first moment that we were going to have a great conversation. Not sure who to give the credit to, whether it was her upbringing or artist development but her professionalism and the way she spoke impressed me. She conducted herself very well in the interview. As we began to have more of a conversation, I was intrigued by many experiences she mentioned. Serena is what I call an all around entertainer.

Yes, she does music but she is also a dancer & a writer. She’s down to earth, she lives life and what she feels is what she displays in her music. During the interview we played and we spoke upon her two singles entitled Dirty & Palm. As the music was playing, I was getting contacted by the listener eager to learn where they can hear more of her music. That’s exactly the type of responses you want to get from new potential fans. Serena was even open to collaborating with me on a song which shows she’s down to create magic with others.

Not only is be easy on the eye but she has a beautiful spirit as well. Please make sure you support by streaming her music & keeping up with her on your social media as well as her website which is displayed. She’s a star that’s definitely shining!

 

 

Stream her music on all streaming platforms and make sure you follow her on social media @itsserenabiatch

The T-Quest Show: Tony Parker Jr.

The T-Quest Show

What’s good everyone, it’s your favorite blogger  T-Quest back with you all again to give you an inside scoop of some new talent that came my way. Let me introduce you all to Tony Parker Jr!

Tony Parker Jr. 

Djuan Corneilous Towner A.KA. Tony Parker Jr. was born on November 15, 1975 to Robbie Towner in St. Louis, MO where their family would relocate to Chicago, IL 3yrs later. With Chicago becoming his hometown he would later discover rap at the age of 8. He started his first rap group called “The Shock Masters” which consisted of himself, his older brother Cedric Towner, and two childhood friends
from the neighborhood.

At the age of 12, Tony would be faced with unfortunate family diversity. He as well as his brother and 3 younger siblings were placed into
foster care. With these adjustments he took full advantage of furthering his musical sense by joining the church choir and learning to play the drums. From there school band at Paul Robinson High School where he attended.

At the age of 15, his adoptive mother took him to his first music seminar. This would be when he really fell in love with music. As Djuan Towner aged he kept at it and produced and wrote many songs still now unheard. He has performed at different venues throughout Kenosha, WI bringing massive crowds like June Tenth, Chasers, Brat Stop, The All White Party and Carthage College under his first stage name “Westside”.

He would later change his name to “Tony Parker Jr.” because he felt he needed something catchier. Tony Parker Jr considers himself as an Artist. He writes music geared towards an open age of listeners young and old. His style is laid back, upbeat and consistent with today’s era. Tony Parker Jr. would like to give a word of advice. “If you have a dream, never give up, real dreams do come true. You just have to keep pushing and keep your faith, and eventually it’ll become your reality.” TP
