I started producing professionally nearly 20 years ago. Like many producers, I was a young artist who needed beats and that started my journey. I was blessed to be able to meet up with platinum producer D-Black who explained many things to me about the music industry. He is the reason I joined ASCAP and I owe a lot to him.
I primarily use Native Instruments Maschine for my production. I also make extensive use of soft-synths, such as Kontakt, Massive, Serum and Sylenth. I have also collected nearly 1 TB of samples, all free and clear, so you never have to worry about using one of my beats and getting sued by someone.
Over the years, I was intentional in only worked with urban Gospel Artists but have recently started to branch out. I have been blessed to be able to produce music for an African American theatric play in NYC. I’ve also had placements on TV, with the most notable being spots on Bravo and Ovation.
In 2018, I was in the top 10% of producers (out of nearly a hundred) accepted into the iStandard Producer Showcase at the ASCAP “I Create Music” EXPO. While I didn’t win the top prize, the exposure was great and I was able to meet with some creative people.
More recently, I have produced for Southern Rap artist Lil’ Raskull. I have also produced my own music under the artist name Goodie Soul.
All praise to Jesus because I’m still standing.
