Tru Lyric

Mickale Jones grew up in Roseland, California. Seeing the violence and gang activity in his area inspired Mickale to work to make a difference in his town. Mickale started writing music in 2004, recording parodies of popular songs. He started writing more serious songs in late 2007 and adopted the name Tru Lyric. He met a few classmates also interested in making christian positive music forming the group "Split Mic". They started recording for their first album in early 2009. Half way through the album, the studio they were recording at closed down. The group slowly started to go their separate ways in early 2010 after graduating from high school. Tru Lyric continued writing music and met Aurie Tillis half way through the summer of 2010. Tru Lyric started recording in Aurie's studio and was led to take the next step by creating his first solo album "The Tru Direction". The album is set to release March 10, 2011
