Trew Culture

Trew Culture is a culture collective of musicians, artists and producers. Founded by [from left to right] Justin Swiney, BD3 & FKAjazz with it’s official launch on February 28th 2019, Trew Culture’s aim is to highlight the melting pot of New York City’s diverse music scene through the performance & production of East Coast Hiphop & Jazz music. With J. Swiney, a native Brooklynite, BD3 a first generation West Indian who also grew up in Brooklyn and FKAjazz, a New York transplant originally from Houston, the three bring a distinct but diverse outlook on the culture. As the three artists began working alongside each other, it quickly became apparent that their musical kinship was something they could take beyond the limitations of the individual grind; that through working together they could create something greater than what either could accomplish on their own.

Naturally, these three have been surrounded by a diverse and eclectic group of musicians & artists based on their longstanding careers in music; from their work within the wide diaspora of music flowing out of the New York City area. Artists & musicians like singer/songwriter Natalie Oliveri, pianist Noah MacNeil, bassist & songwriter, Yoshiki Yamada, hiphop artist Walky Wah are among a few joining the TrewCulture collective. In reflection J. Swiney brings illustration to the atmosphere the collective has created:

“Music is a universal language. As FKAjazz would say, ‘music is my first language.’ That’s the case for everyone involved in Trew Culture, music first. Being of Guyanese decent like my brother, Edson Sean, we have a common kinship. Same thing for my brother BD3 who is first generation American. We’re all transplants that bring a unique cultural flavor to Trew Culture. It’s ingrained in our music and comes out even more when we bring it to the live stage. FKAJazz brings that Houston Sway, Noah adds a taste of Boston and Yoshiki adds a bit of heat with that wasabi from Japan. All of that mixed together gives you a dynamic experience that all ages can enjoy.”
