Using a sound that combines hip-hop, sultry R&B ballads, and funky dance music, 3rd Storee was originally formed during 1997 within the tough south central section of LA, California, USA. Composed of Kevonté (b. Kevonté Jackson, 6 Feb 1983, USA), Lil’ Guy (b. Kenneth Pratt, 16 June 1986, USA), D’Smoove (b. Dante Clark, 10 Feb 1983, USA), and Jay-R (b. Barry Reed Jnr., 17 Dec 1983, USA), the quartet nearly immediately produced a breakthrough if they had been agreed upon by Edmonds Entertainment, and placed on tour with Britney Spears. Due to the achievement of the tour, 3rd Storee was after that invited to open up for ’N Sync on the nationwide US tour, before going to Europe for the very first time during 1998, without actually releasing an recording. Once the group came back back, 3rd Storee authorized a recording agreement with Universal Information and completed focus on their debut recording. By the beginning of the brand new millennium business lead vocalist Lil’ Guy had made method for fresh members J’boy and Gavin. Dealing with renowned makers such as for example Nokio and Rodney Jerkins, 3rd Storee’s second recording, Get BESIDE ME, was released in 2002.
