The Social Experience......Helping the Unsigned Artist Get Heard!!!
Entycee (N-Tice) is a singer/songwriter with style and vocals that match leading ladies in the industry both past and present. Born and raised in Pittsburgh Pennsylvania she grew up listening to singers like the late great Phyllis Hyman, Teena Marie and Vesta Williams in addition to those artist whom are still gracing us with their presents today such as Chaka Kahn and Miki Howard, the list goes on. Entycee developed her love for both singing and writing lyrics at the age of seven. Starting out as a member of Pittsburgh’s Morningside Church Of God and Christ youth, mass and state gospel choirs she studied and quickly mastered the art of harmonizing with precision and uses that skill to the fullest today. With intoxicating lyrics and sultry vocals she brings to the table a touch of old school fused with a new school musical vibe, a mixture of Neo-soul, Spoken word, RnB, and Rap.. She shows her listeners versatility by both arranging and performing vocals. "I love the old school sound and vibe and I work to portray that strength in my lyrics and music when it comes to laying my vocals. I focus on finding the right pitch and melody then build my harmony from there". When ask whom she sounds like, she will humbly state, I sound like me! I am however musically influenced by beautiful soulful singers today such as Chrisette Michelle, Chante' Moore, Ledisi, Jill Scott, Marshia Ambrosia and Vivian Green just to name a few and groups from the 80’s and 90’s such as The SOS band, Rose Royce, Shalamar, and Atlantic star. “I don't believe in trying to pattern myself after anyone vocally because all voices are unique and mine has it's own mark to leave and story to tell”. Someone who can attest to that unique sound she has is her long time producer Chazz Brooks of (C Brooks Productions) who’s music is the perfect match for her quality and sound. Music tells me what to write and his keeps me on my toes by pushing me to think outside the box. I enjoy and have a serious connection to the music we create together. Since 1996 Entycee and Chazz has formed a musical union that is leaving its mark in the industry. She has opened for Aaron Hall, Bone Thugs and Harmony's Lazy Bone, Carl Payne, Jada Kiss and Samson and Deliliah. She has won local contests in her hometown of Pittsburgh Pa, including 1st place for female and Hip Hop/R&B vocalist back to back in the annual WAMO FM Radio talent showcase in 2002 and 2003. In 2004 after appearing as a guest on the June King show (aired locally in Pittsburgh) she hosted her own locally syndicated television show called “Introducing Masters In The Making” which was her way of giving back to the community that gave so much to her growing up. Her first installment featured Michael Fraizer former music production manager for Mr Tyler Perry. She captured the Miss Black Teenage Pageant (a 25 year mothers day tradition in Pittsburgh where she herself was a semifinalist at the age of 17) on film to pay homage to the pageants coordinator of 25 years Jean Bryant
