Artist Bio

A multimedia creator of many talents, “capturing the sounds of everything,” as he says (calls) it. Artist and producer Andre Tidwell aka ReTro d.r.E, starting writing poetry at the age of 16, but never rapped until the age of 19.

But on one summer night, d.r.E finally got his shot (to his say first rap verse), however it did not go so well. Everyone in the room was laughing at him because he couldn’t get any of his words out, it was the real definition of mumble rap.

But from that day ReTro d.r.E has vowed for that moment to never happen again, from writing on kitchen tables, napkins, sticky notes, and break rooms.

While creating music d.r.E’s goal has been to tell his story and his perspective through rap lyrics and soothing melodies. 

After releasing his first (debut) studio album in 2021 and latest EP ‘Practice Raps 2’ in 2022, he has been on a quest of sharpening his skill (tool) set by focusing on the art of writing and composing great music by writing frequently and studying the greatest artist of all time.
