Having always been poetically inclined, his creative storytelling naturally evolved into music-making fifteen years ago. His poems turned into rap and hip-hop tracks; true stories of love, hate, and everything in between. Vane recorded his first mixtape "On My Way To Find Myself" in three hours, on a ten dollar computer microphone and Sony Acid Pro 4.0, having recorded ten mixtapes since, professionally which can be downloaded FREE on Datpiff.com

In these times, a new era calls for a new kind of girl group. A group that combines the charm, charisma and extravagant style, of all the classic female groups, that came before, with each member's character showcasing the confidence and determination to solidify their mark in the future, all while making musical history. Truth be told, that new era has already begun. In the grand tradition of the great ones, we proudly present to you; Shabreia, Deja & Jahna collectively known as "MAIN GIRL".
Formed in 2009 "MAIN GIRL" boasts the talents of three talented young ladies; Shabreia, Deja & Jahna. All natives of the D.M.V. (DC/Maryland/Virginia), these ladies effortlessly blend the musical styles of Hip-Hop, Pop, Gospel, R&B and Jazz to create a little slice of heaven on earth, for your ears. Their sound as well as their look can be considered; sassy yet sexy, hot yet funky, down-to-earth and youthful, yet humble and mature.
That stature of maturity comes in handy for this trio when it comes to each member being able to live up to being a "MAIN GIRL". Giving up their personal lives, their many circles of friends, any semblance of a social life, and on frequent occasion, a good night's sleep, these girls remain committed to their music despite maintaining a grueling schedule, that would surely make music veterans shudder.
They realize that total dedication, ultimately is a must to achieving their dream and they continually put all other "extra things", except for their schooling, on the back burner. In many peoples' opinion, to have the god-given gift of "voice" is to ultimately be free. And to be able to sing extremely well, for these girls, is no different. Singing has become an outlet for "MAIN GIRL" to express themselves straight from their hearts. Whatever they are going through, collectively or individually, they always find a way to transfer and convey those raw emotions to their audience, through song.
"We consider ourselves the voice of the youth", says Deja. "Our songs are conversations that we have with our female & male friends, a/k/a our fans. It's like being on the phone or texting all our friends, all at the same time. Since we care about our friends we want to give them something that they can listen to that's positive, has meaning and will hopefully help them in their own lives. And by doing this we show them what being a "MAIN GIRL" is all about."
Main Girl has opened up for artists such as; Chris Brown, August Alsina, Trey Songz, J. Cole, Miguel, Teyana Tayloe, Jeremiah and many more. Main Girl was featured on Big Beat/Atlantic Records Dance Producer’s Spencer & Hill’s single “I Spy” which was released in 2012.
