From Dallas, TX comes the very talented melody hitmaker - Tremaine Morgan. Taking influence from everyone such as Steve Wonder to Usher to Snoop Dogg, Tremaine brings the party and the grind vibes into a sonic experience.
Tremaine Morgan has recently released “On Your Way Up”, which is a reminder of the grind it takes to make it happen, but also has the energy of a house party. The song starts by slapping your ears with the vibe of going off at a party with all your friends, and then the lyrics remind us of what’s really important in life. Lyrics such as “Time to put your faith where your mouth is” speaks to him losing faith, but finding the strength to keep pushing. The hook of the song is an instant sing-along, not only because of how easy it is to catch onto but because of how great the melody is. By the end of the 2 minutes and 48-second song, you’re definitely wanting more, feeling inspired and ready to celebrate life.
Moved by his experience with being a victim of gun violence, substance abuse, and a failed relationship, Tremaine has found spiritual growth and emotional healing. Something that most people don’t know is he also served in the US military and he’s ready to bring awareness to organic love, healing, purpose, and motivation.

Thanks for taking the time to talk with us today at Buzz Music! What would you say was the hardest obstacle to climb over when working on your track “On Your Way Up”?
During that time I was coming out of a bad relationship. When you first leave a relationship, you feel like your whole world is crashing down and when you feel like that, nothing else matters. I started to lose my faith, so "On Your Way Up" was a response to the struggle I was going through with my feelings. I made that song to uplift me and my listeners. To help them remember that we all go through bad times, but you are still "On Your Way Up" and don't lose faith when that struggle comes because God is preparing you for something better. I want my listeners to look in the mirror and hit play.
Can you speak to your substance abuse and losing faith, and how you found the courage to change your life for the better?
I did not have a substance abuse problem, but I did lose faith. I lost my faith because of the transition I was coming out of made me feel like a part of me was missing and I was finding a new me. I put all of myself into the relationship and that person, and when it ended I lost my identity. I started losing friendships and started to see people for who they really were which wasn't beneficial to my growth. I had no new music to write and no producers at that time. I started to lose faith in what my future held.
At what age did you realize that music was your calling?
I was ten years old. I would find old school records from my Dad's collection and sing Micheal Jackson. I was 8 when I sang my first song at church, but 10 years old is when I started getting hungry for music. I wrote my first song, and actually started coming up with routines, showcases, and talent shows
Something most people don’t know is that you’ve served in the US military. What was that like for you and how has that impacted not only your music but your everyday life?
I was in the U.S. Army for 4 years. During that time I actually met a few people. One particular person I met was a producer. It was amazing to meet people from all over and observed different lifestyles as well as new personal experiences. That experience gave me stories and ideas. I was able to put these experiences into my writing. It also exposed me to connections that were worthwhile. I was really involved and I was able to perform in Iraq for soldiers.
Lastly, what do you want to leave your listeners and everyone reading this with?
Once you find your purpose and calling in life, keep on going and stay consistent until it happens for you. Don't give up because not everyone will understand your journey or call.
