Leaving your comfort zone must be scary, especially leaving that comfort zone to chase goals in the music industry. Following the advice of a former co-worker, Tre Nino decided it was time to leave behind his west side Detroit neighborhood and attend Full Sail University. Upon completion, Tre Nino found himself working the boards at Blue Room Studios, one of the best studios in Atlanta, Ga. Thissomebull.com recently spoke with Tre Nino about his journey that lead to one of the most important seats in the music industry.
TSB: Introduce yourself to our readers.
Tre Nino: What’s up Family. First, I just want to say that I appreciate everyone for reading this & pray you have love & peace. I’m Tre Nino, recording artist & engineer in Atlanta.
TSB: Talk to me about growing up in Detroit.
Tre Nino: I was born in Detroit and grew up on west 7 mile doing things any normal kid would like play basketball & football or ride my bike with my friends around the hood. I can just remember loving to go outside & play rather its 100 degrees or freezing cold. I’ve always been a huge rap & R&B fan since about 9 or 10 years old. I can remember the day I got my first couple mixtapes. The Suffix & Trap or Die.
TSB: Tell me about your experience at Full Sail University.
Tre Nino: I went to Full Sail University in 2017 because I just wanted to make better music. They helped me achieve that plus more. My time there was intentional and being away from my comfort zone allowed me to focus completely. The state-of-the-art facility, real world-like curriculum, and dedicated staff of professionals all made my experience one I’ll never forget.
TSB: After graduating from Full Sail you moved to Atlanta, what made you pick the ATL?
Tre Nino: Truthfully, once I completed Full Sail, I didn’t know where I would go. In this industry people typically go to California, New York, or Nashville, but for the music I loved, Atlanta was THE place. Part of me thought I would move back home after graduation and bring back what I’d learned but something pulled me to Atlanta.
TSB: What are you currently working on?
Tre Nino: Right now, I’m gearing up for the release of this collaboration project with my bro Abel. We’re a duo called CAMINI & have a project titled “We’ll Meet Again” coming mid-August, by way of Bigger Than Us.
TSB: Thank You for taking the time out to have a conversation with us, could you provide links and contact info?
Tre Nino: The video for the lead single Hate is on YouTube right now, check it out.
