Talent Bender is the songwriting artistry of Dewayne Jackson. After nearly six years of writing songs, Dewayne grew tired of his music “sitting on the shelf” waiting for placements. In 2019, he joined Mickey Shiloh’s HRDRV community and soon realized that he needed to stop playing the traditional role of a songwriter and music publisher content with staying behind the scenes shopping demos. In the music industry, if songwriting is considered a superpower, then Dewayne needed to become a hero for his own music. On July 25, 2020, Dewayne subscribed to HDRV Records and forged the artist mantle of Talent Bender.
Talent Bender’s approach is to release music using featured artists for songs in various genres: R&B, Hip Hop, Pop, and Country. Talent Bender’s first single, “Let’s Make Music (Feat. Quincy Thompson),” was released on August 8, 2020. and it has the makings of a hit.
