It’s not every day you get a chance to audition in front of music executives and get offered a deal on the spot. But that’s the story of 19-year-old singer and songwriter, Deon Young.
In 2011, Young reached out to fans outside of his hometown of Harlem, New York, when he released his For The Love mixtape. It got the attention of Sylvia Rhone, and music mogul L.A. Reid, landing Young a spot as the latest artist to sign to Rhone’s label.
Considered on more of the edgy side of R&B, like his counterparts Trey Songz, Lloyd, and even August Alsina, Young is putting his faith in Epic Records and now stepping out to claim his territory with a cover song and video for “Drank In My Cup” – check it out below:
Young is currently working on his full-length debut album. Find out more at www.deonforever.com.
