Time Brings Progression, Progression Reveals Passion.......RoC
From the tender age of five, RoC The Producer was attached to music. His earliest memories are of he and his siblings listening to their fathers' analog reel to reel tape player. Those memories are treasured moments in which RoC remembers being drawn into the music, and he has gravitated to it ever since.
It was a combination of soulful 70's music and catchy synthesized R&B/FUNK from the early 80's that first caught his attention. At age ten, RoC stumbled upon his uncles' massive record collection in the basement of his home and his curiosity for authentic music styles and iconic artists grew. He mustered up the courage to play his fathers' stereo without permission, and his passion for music increased. Almost instantly, the well over 5000 Lp's and crates of records became an invaluable treasure. Nothing would separate young RoC from his new found love for music.
At age 13, RoC began to mimic his Uncle "Joe Bolton", a young man known for his incredible "b boy" style of dance skills in 1983, and his dual turntable skills at local house parties from 1986-1990. If "Uncle Joe" was a rapper, so was RoC. If uncle Joe was a DJ, Roc followed after. If "Uncle Joe" was a music producer, Roc wanted to be the same. Uncle Joe had a large influence on the shaping of who Roc hoped to be, and who he became.
Years passed and young RoC matured from an aspiring Dj, to a pianist and music composer. He grew tired of taking records, chopping samples and recreating other artists' ideas over drum loops; he wanted to make something all his own. Roc took action and with a creative drive, he bought his first Yamaha keyboard. By the time Roc had turned 19 years old, he began to create his own musical compositions.
Now on a personal journey to become one of the industries' leading music producers, RoC The Producer studies piano, music theory and music engineering. With hardwork and a determined heart, RoC hopes that he can not only thrive in this competitive industry, but also fuel his passion, his goals, and his dreams of becoming one of musics' greatest. It is now present-day 2009 and Roc still has an unbreakable spirit, an insatiable musical hunger, and the dedication, drive and determination to fufill what he has set out to accomplish. What started so long ago will soon come to pass. Ladies and Gentlemen, Boys and Girls, follow RoC The Producer on his musical journey as Time Brings Progression, and Progression Reveals Passion.
