THE MUSIC AND MINISTRY OF D.L. YANCEY II

D.L. Yancey II is a creative writer and nuclear engineer who uses artistic expression to advocate Diversity and Inclusion. After a short stint in professional football in 2008 he began a career in engineering and music.

Storms (NASA), decommissioning technologies (ORAU), and design of the first new nuclear reactor authorized to operate this century. Musically he has recorded with Grammy award-winning record producer Lex Lucazi, shared stages with award-winning artists such as Waterloo Revival and Wess Morgan, and he’s also a winner of T.I.’s Exposure Open Mic showcase.

“Life Is Love” is D.L.’s upcoming album. This debut album is classified as “jazzy soul music” which cultivates the mind of all ages. For D.L., “music is a ministry” and this album reflects how life is full of love if we take time to see it. “Life Is Love” will be released June of 2018.

What genre of music do you consider your work to be? 

It’s difficult to place it in a category because of the different variety of songs I’ve recorded.  I began this recording journey a long time ago as a hip-hop artist and in the present time, my interests are growing more toward a jazz sound.  So currently my work falls somewhere in between those two spectrums. The music on the album has a heavy live jazzy R&B sound, and the lyrics are centered around the life and the gospel.  This album, to me, fits in the R&B Gospel genre. But I would say that I’m definitely a soul artist.
