Estee Bullock, originally from Brooklyn, New York is currently a resident of Bensalem, Pennsylvania. He began his musical journey in New York as a member of the Grammy Award winning Gospel group Hezekiah Walker & the Love Fellowship Crusade Choir in 1985 and still performs with the multiple award-winning singers occasionally. His formal music training and studies began at the world renowned Fiorello H. LaGuardia H.S. (also known as the FAME school) in Manhattan, New York where he majored in Voice. In 1996, Estee Bullock received an Entering Student Scholarship to attend Berklee College of Music of Boston, Massachusetts where he majored in Music Business and Management and minored in Vocal performance. It wasn’t until 2001 that Estee placed his first nationally recorded song “Let Go, Let God” on the LOVE is LIVE recording by Hezekiah Walker’s Love Fellowship Tabernacle Choir. Things began to switch from solely concentrating on performance to songwriting as well. After working and writing for a few independent projects and at his church, Estee Bullock (along with co-writer Nathan McNair) wrote the mega Gospel choir anthem “Souled Out” for Hezekiah Walker. Which also became Walker’s first #1 Gospel song on Billboard Charts and it maintained that spot for 14 weeks. As one would imagine, Estee Bullock’s songwriting acclaim lead him to write for other Gospel artists like Shirley Caesar, Maurette Brown-Clark, J. Moss, DeWayne Woods, and Jonathan Nelson.
In 2012 Estee released his debut LP Fisherman on iTunes independently which allowed him to stretch his song writing pen from Choir music he became known for to songs that could be sung by solo artists or groups. Look for more music from Estee Bullock in 2017.
