Dru Hill


Dru Hill Bio

Dru Hill are one of their kind as they continue to dominate the music industry through exceptional creativity, wondrous performances and a global fan base.

Years from now when it’s all said and done, music historians will surely debate the contributions of those who majorly impacted the genre of R&B. Icons guaranteed to be mentioned are industry stalwarts such as The Temptations, The Four Tops, The O’Jay’s, The Jackson Five, New Edition, Guy, Jodeci, and Boyz II Men. However, any list that does not include the incomparable Dru Hill is grossly inaccurate.

The torch bearers responsible for carrying R&B music into the new millennium was the labour of love for four immensely talented young singers who were, and remain, the quintessential example of superior entertainers. From their first single that asked the ever important question, Tell Me (what you want), Dru Hill has been giving fans what they need in the form of numerous classic love ballads and infectious dance songs that have gained him a countless fan base the world over. Named after a popular Baltimore park, Dru Hill is comprised of Tamir Ruffin (aka Nokio), Mark Andrews (aka Sisqo), Larry Anthony (aka Jazz) and Antwuan Simpson (aka Tao), the newest addition to the group replacing original member James “Big Woody” Green who left the group to pursue a solo career.

In a career that spans nearly two decades, Dru Hill, under the steadfast leadership of their long time and trusted manager Kevin Peck, have accomplished literally everything an R&B/Pop group can dream of achieving. From having a string of Top 40 #1 hit singles, multi-platinum selling albums, movie and television appearances, headlining sold out global concert tours to selling an eye-popping 30 million records worldwide, their star power has never been in question. Proof of their immense global following was most evident when their reality show entitled Keith Sweat’s Platinum House became the highest rated series in the Centric network’s history, proving their critics wrong that even after a significant absence from the public eye, fans still can’t get enough of Dru Hill.

With a music library fit for royalty that boasts some of the biggest selling and most popular R&B songs of all time, to include Tell Me, 5 Steps, In My Bed, Never Make a Promise, How Deep Is Your Love, These Are The Times and We’re Not Making Love No More, that are considered by many music experts define the 90s. Additionally, the group’s music has helped tremendously to bolster the sale of movies and soundtracks with their songs often having been the lead single for block buster films like “Eddie” starring Academy Award winning actress Whoopi Goldberg (Tell Me), “How To Be A Player” starring comedian Bill Bellamy (She’s a Bad Mama Jama), “Rush Hour” starring Jackie Chan and Chris Tucker (How Deep is Your Love), “Wild Wild West” starring mega superstar Will Smith (Wild Wild West) and “Soul Food” starring former Miss America Vanessa Williams (We’re Not Making Love No More).

As their lead single Back to the Future, that features on Dru Hill’s fourth studio album titled Indrupendence Day, heats up the clubs, radio and the internet, the group’s vocal capabilities become greatly enhanced by the arrival of Tao. The Annapolis, Maryland native’s incredible singing range has poised him to do for Dru Hill what Johnny Gill did for New Edition, and that has helped take the group to new levels of greatness. All while Nokio continued to prove his genius as a songwriter, producer, and singer. Jazz supplies vocal versatility through his amazing voice and his unique ability to play an array of musical instruments. Rounding out the soon-to-be hall of fame foursome is none other than the blonde-silver haired rebel Sisqo, whose dancing and singing brilliance is timeless.

Busier than ever performing at sold out venues around the globe for a whole new generation of adoring fans, Nokio, Tao, Jazz and Sisqo continue to push boundaries and spread the Dru Hill fame.
