I started out as an artist/songwriter and had the opportunity to work with major producers and engineers out in NY in the making of demos and realized I just love being in the studio making music than actually going on auditions and performing on stage. I had so much more passion in finding that right synth patch or kick spending hours tweaking them than practicing my show routing. So I have spent more time and focused on production and engineering for the past 10 years. But both experiences gave me the ability to become well rounded as a producer. It's all about the artist and I want to give them what they are looking for.
Have you performed in front of an audience?
I make beats all day and that's what I do best as a producer...kickin' in the studio!!
Your musical influences
Just too many to mention but if I put producers I admire would be Timbaland, and the 2 genius musician/producer Jimmy Jam & Terry Lewis. They are the greatest for having such a long lasting career and can adapt to fast changing music trend. I have respect to all producers and artist who have made it big and I love learning from successful people. I listen to many styles of music not just the urban music. knowing all sorts of styles of music only adds more to my writing. I don't put limit to where I can get influences and inspirations from.
What equipment do you use?
That's my secret ingredients:)
