A friend from Black Sky Records just sent us a heads up on a new artist coming out Duranta D. Cook (born December 31 1980 in Vallejo, California, USA), a indie singer-songwriter that goes by his artist name Vital.

Prior to starting his solo career Vital wanted to be behind the music scene, writing and contributing by recording demos for other musicians in the Bay Area. After being persuaded by the many people he met, he released two EP’s in the genre of Hip Hop and R&B. “I never found my true self while doing what the society expected me to do, I never felt at home doing what’s expected”.

Wanting to experiment more with the music he felt was a better reflection of himself he went into the studio to record his first solo album in the summer of 2008. Now, almost two years later he is anxiously waiting to let the world hear his music. Click here for 6 free downloadable songs. As I was told, and will repeat…Good music. Promise.
