Esther Mayberry aka (Old Skool) QueenE early beginnings hails from the projects of N.W. Washington, DC especially when D.C. was really considered Chocolate City. While growing up in this neighborhood with her five brothers attending schools, she and her brothers mimicked the Doo Wop and Motown sounds of this time. Two of her brothers sang and played in a band while QueenE tried her hand at singing with her girlfriends in school talent shows.<br />
Old Skool QueenE wrote poems during her High School and College days and compiled a book of poems that is pending publication. She turned some of those poems to songs and Rap songs for her daughter’s teenage group in the early 1990s.<br />
Now QueenE has emerged and resurrected her poetry and songs to produce her first Compilation Album to showcase her Songwriting skills called “We Are One" 2013. It shows off several songs under different genre. She shows off her granddaughter’s Rap skills and Spanish language skills, and her youngest daughter’s soulful singing style.
After writing and producing several singles for them, QueenE went into the studio to cut her first single Rap song called Thanksgiving.<br />
Today, QueenE is happily writing and working to produce her second Solo Album soon to be released year 2016. Her first solo Album called "Victory Is Mine" is a mixed genre that included some gospel, hip-hop and Rap songs that was produced with her 88 year old mother singing in the background. It was released and distributed by ITunes June 2014 and is available in all Digital stores world wide. (Old Skool) QueenE is focused on promoting some Singles from her debut album as well as promoting her recently released Single called "Dark Chocolaty" that she dedicates to "BlackGirlsRock" and dedicates it to all the darkest of dark people in the world. This Single is the start of her next album for year 2016 in the works.
