T.R.A.N.E. Spitta, Ethan DaSilva, is a Brooklyn born, Nashville native with insane lyricism, rhyme schemes, sociopolitical messages, and deep and passionate songs. He was raised in a Caribbean household. Both of his parents were born and raised in Guyana, a small country on the Northern coast of South America bordering the Caribbean Sea. This culture contributed to some of his early musical influences being Bob Marley, Sizzla Kalonji, and other various conscious Reggae artists. Other influences include some of his mother’s favorite artists like Yolanda Adams and Anita Baker and his uncles’ favorite artists, who both were DJs in Brooklyn during their adolescent and early adulthood, such as Wu Tang, KRS One, Mos Def, and Biggie Smalls.
T.R.A.N.E. stands for “The Revolutionary Artist Named Ethan.” This acronym is more than just a clever play on letters: it is his motivation. Trane means to seriously impact his fans lives and, hopefully, the lives of everyone he encounters. Trane stands up for Humanity, peace, and love and will stop at nothing to reveal the truths behind these principles to the entire world.
