July Featured Artist
You might not be able to readily call his name from the top of your head, but chances are, you’ve definitely heard one of his tracks or enjoyed the fruits of his musical labor. He has worked with Southern stars as Bubba Sparks, Tampa Tony, and DJ Trans and produced international platinum recording artist Turbulence’s hit single “Love Me For Me.”
Steady in his efforts and quiet in his approach, Tampa, Fla.-based producer Lorvins “L” Lormeus was one of yesterday’s most recognizable talents in urban music. The tide has now turned as Lorvins has embarked on a new phenomenon call “Truth Music” a genre of music that reveals the truth about the true Hebrew Israelites in the Bible. This is due to a global awakening prophecy in the Bible orchestrated by Yahuah (God) himself.
In 2009, Lormeus landed a major label deal for J Streetz’s 2010 single “Country Boy” in conjunction with indie imprint Phresh 2 Def Records and Universal/ Republic subsidiary Devine Records.
“I really don’t have a genre that I fall into,” Lorvins explains. “Music is an extension of my senses.”
Born in Freeport, Bahamas, those senses were instilled in the producer/singer/songwriter for as long as he’s been alive. He started singing in church at an early age. In school, he was always the first one chosen whenever musical talents were needed amongst his peers.
Better known as L, Lorvins started to formerly groom his singing abilities at Dillard High School. As a part of the performing arts high school’s Ashanti Cultural Arts program, he was awarded the opportunity to perform for the Lexus Corporation on the televised ABC Network.
After high school, he landed a full music scholarship to Bethune-Cookman College in Daytona. There, he became a member of the internationally acclaimed Concert Chorale, directed by the legendary Dr. Rebecca Steele. Additionally, he was coached under the tutelage of world-renowned opera singer Curtis Rayam.
Because of his formal training, he has been well received for performing various genres jazz, opera, classical, Negro spirituals, gospel and mainstream music. Over time, versatility would become the niche to define the style that L would now be known for.
“Having a formal, musically trained background makes me appreciate and respect all styles of music from classical to hip hip,” says L.
During his educational journey through college, he started to gain an appreciation for rap and R&B. He quickly fell in love with the different sounds within the two genres and would spend late nights at rehearsal halls improvising popular songs on the piano.
“Wherever there was a piano,” L recalls, “I was going to test it.”
