Denzsel DeAnte Singleton was born on June 2nd, 1995 in Newport News, Virginia to Letricia Singleton, An amateur poet and author, and Gary Singleton, Road manager to such acts as Foxy Brown, Back to Back, and Black Street, public activist, and founder of Peace N the Streets. At the age of 6 Denzsel heard tracks from bands and artists such as the Fugees, Nas, Biggie, Common, and De La Soul. Changed forever, he then decided to follow the same path as the artists he had listened to growing up. Knowing this his Father made him read the entire Webster dictionary from cover to cover which only helped widen his vocabulary for the many songs that he would be writing.
After finding Jesus it only ignited his passion for music even more using it more for ministry than anything else going by young CEO (Christian Encouraging Others) in high school performing at many Churches and church events all throughout the Virginia Beach area. At the age of 18 he decided to get rid of the name due to wanting to be as transparent as possible through his music and felt as if his stage name was hindering this, now going by the name his nieces affectionately gave Zsel The Artist, and is rapidly becoming known for his distinctly musical fusion of Jazz and Hip Hop and a live show far beyond the average concert.
