Today we’d like to introduce you to Breeze The Voice.
Breeze the Voice, born Fabrice Clerger— is an R&B/Soul Singer and Songwriter who is no stranger to having his songs heard and connected to civic and social initiatives. His lyrics and passion for many causes are effortless matrimonies.
Born and raised in West Palm Beach, FL by loving parents of Haitian descent, Breeze was reared with a strong sense of morals, character, and faith. Growing up in the early 90’s, artists like Michael Jackson, Stevie Wonder, Sade, Marvin Gaye, and Musiq Soulchild were some of his favorites. Breeze strongly resonates with the great Marvin Gaye and his commitment to social change communicated through his music. Needless to say, Breeze is a young man with an old soul.
In 2012, Breeze began songwriting and finding his voice. The following year he released his freshman album entitled, Conviction. On the deluxe edition of the album, he recorded a tribute song to the King Family called, “The Dream Realized”—. This song added to The King Center Library & Archives at The King Center in Atlanta, GA. Soon after, Breeze partnered with Naomi Ruth Barber King and the A.D. King Foundation to promote peace and youth empowerment. In March of 2014, Breeze was invited to join Mrs. Naomi King for the Commonwealth Day of Service at the Buckingham Palace—hosted by Queen Elizabeth and the British parliament, in London, UK.
Breeze prolifically sings about one variable in the equation that cannot be absent, and that is LOVE! Releasing his sophomore album, YOU, in 2014, Breeze was compelled to create music with a healing impact. For two consecutive years in 2014 and 2015, he contributed his voice to the global campaign, One Billion Rising in Atlanta, GA—to raise awareness for human trafficking and violence against woman and children.
In 2016, Breeze’s hit single, “Love is the Answer”—featuring the rising Saudi artist, Rotana, was included in President Jimmy Carter’s Human Right’s Defenders Forum at The Carter Center in Atlanta, GA. The re-mastered production of “Love is the Answer” was in collaboration with the Berklee College of Music Contemporary Orchestra and the Berklee Reverence Gospel Choir.
In early 2017, the song was also featured in the Columbia City Ballet Production, “Emanuel: Love Is The Answer” in commemoration of the senseless tragedy at the Emanuel AME Church in Charleston, SC. Most recently, “Love is the Answer” was included in the United Nations’ compilation album, Music to Inspire—featuring Artists against Human Trafficking. The album helped launch a global campaign to raise awareness and combat human trafficking. Breeze was among the 50 artists who donated their art for the cause, including Grammy Award-winning Quincy Jones and Joss Stone—as well as the legendary Hall & Oates.
Breeze is currently working on his next project—the Love Again EP, which will be released in early 2019! On June 22nd, he released the highly anticipated single, “Real Love” on all digital outlets to kick off the summer.
Overall, has it been relatively smooth? If not, what were some of the struggles along the way?
It has not been an easy road at all. Staying true to my message— true to myself, while fighting to remain steadfast and motivated in a world polluted with hate and division has been a challenge. However, it’s been a challenge worth fighting for. It’s so easy to go with the popular wave of hate, division and putting each other down. But, I’m a soldier of love and I’ll always be pushing that message out— love is the answer. Period.
My motto is: “Love God, Love Yourself. Spread Love.”
My music speaks for those who are searching for love, and trying to find themselves in this lonely world. In the summer of 2016, I woke up the morning of my 25th birthday to a text message informing me that one of my best friends had been murdered by senseless gun violence, the night before. I went through a dark depressive period of denial, anger and confusion. I felt spiritually and emotionally broken, amidst the National and social disparity of police brutality, gun violence, racial inequality, and many other major issues. This brokenness led to a deeper passion to write more music that would bring a sense of healing to other broken people.
Breeze the Voice – what should we know? What do you guys do best? What sets you apart from the competition?
Breeze the Voice is a brand encompassed around Love & healing, through music, visual art and apparel.
I am most proud of my collaborations and connections to historic figures in American History, such as President Carter and Mrs. Naomi Ruth Barber King. These partnerships, have elevated the awareness for social issues and have inspired my creative perspective as an artist.
My ability to create quality “cause music” with meaningful lyrical content, while staying true to the pure sound of R&B/Soul music is what sets me apart.
What is “success” or “successful” for you?
Personally, success is as small as one single person being inspired by my art to grow and spread love. Ideally, I want to continue creating music and art that has a global appeal and reach— inspiring everyone to love.
As my platform grows, my hope is that my message heals and inspires people around the globe. This would be the ultimate success.
