I have been producing music since 2001, when I did a couple of records for actor and rap artist Deezer D (ER, CB4 fame) who I met through platinum producer Darin Black (DBlack). (DBlack has been invaluable in teaching me the ins and outs of the music biz over the years.) Even at my rawest, I’ve always had the innate ability to capture emotion through music. A lot of this is a result of me playing entirely by ear (former saxophone player) and having some good genes passed down from both parents 🙂
Over the years I’ve had the opportunity to produce music for a few Christian Rap artists with the latest being a few placements on Lil’ Raskull’s “Gory to Glory 2” album which was released in 2018. I have produced for a couple of urban stage plays as well, again using my ability to bring out emotion through my music since what I do tends to be very melodic. I have participated in a few beat battles as well (mostly online) to sharpen my skills. I have done two iStandard Producer showcases, with the first one done in 2011. I also did the iStandard Producer showcase at the 2018 ASCAP Expo in Hollywood (one out of the 8 producers selected out of hundreds).
From an equipment standpoint, I have been using Native Instruments Maschine with a keyboard since 2011. Before that it was Cakewalk, FL Studio and ACID. My sounds arsenal is made up of a large array of VSTs (Sylenth, Massive and Serum to name a few), as well as an assortment of samples that I’ve collected over the years.
On a more personal level, I’m a born-again Christian. I am also a husband to a Proverbs 31 wife and have three beautiful daughters. I am a blessed man.
