In 2020, original music from Dreion’s debut EP “I AM LIFE" was featured in the film “Foster Boy" produced by Shaquille O’Neal to shed light on the struggles and challenges foster youth face every day. As a survivor, Dreion seeks to use his traumatic experiences to impact generations internationally through the healing power of music and the art of live performance. He considers himself to be a soul therapist. His music heals, inspires, sheds light, and resonates with the deepest parts of the soul through his message of hope. His story is a powerful journey of trauma, tragedy, and triumph the world needs to hear. His artistry and live performances bring people together to celebrate love, life, and liberty through the unifying language of music. His music can be best described as a combination of Gospel, Soul, Funk, and R&B, taking inspiration from Prince, Stevie Wonder, James Brown, Michael Jackson, Kirk Franklin, The Clark Sisters and many more.
