Yazoo City recording artist Treil Sampson is prepared to make his mark through music, beginning with his single “In the Clouds.”
“I've been loving music all my life,” says the 19-year-old. “Now just seems like the right time to be able to show the world what I have to offer.”
The single features another Mississippi native Psycho and will be released for free download on Tuesday, July 2 at http://www.mtv.com/artists/treil-sampson.
It is the goal of Treil to have 5,000 downloads on release day, a goal that he believes is easily attainable.
“I am doing this not just for me but to show others from where I’m from and even around the world what is possible for them,” he said. “We don't have to let where we're from dictate where we can go. I know that music can take me anywhere.”
On Sunday, June 30, at 6 p.m., both Treil and Psycho will be guests on Conversations live radio show with host and fellow Mississippian Cyrus Webb discussing their love of music and introducing the single “In the Clouds” for the first time.
The interview will be heard online at www.blogtalkradio.com/conversationslive.
