Bio

From the pulsing bass drums to the calming melodies, there is no doubt that music, in all of its forms, moves and inspires everyone.
Born and raised in Nassau Bahamas, I can clearly remember the song that swayed me to write and compose music of my own; “How’s It Going Down”, by DMX on his début album “It’s Dark And Hell Is Hot”. From the moment that bass line hit my ears I was hooked and I knew that music would be a major part of my life.
After multiple attempts and failures of trying to recreate that and many other Hip Hop sounds and music just like it, (on a Casio and tape recorder), I became more and more aware that being a skilled composer does not happen over night. However, my many failures did not stop the continuous and inspiring moments in music that seemed to pull me in deeper.
As time went by and as I became a lot more acquainted with computers and sequencing software, I soon discovered FL Studio. It was with this program that I truly began to develop. Don’t get me wrong, my music at this point was still nothing to brag about, but with the easy to use interface, it was a great way to get my feet wet in computerized production, mixing and sequencing. Eventually I associated my self with other sequencing software such as Cubase, Abelton live and Reason. With hours upon hours of practice and daily dedication, I began posting my recordings on various sites that showcased undeveloped and aspiring artists, just to get some feed back and useful criticism.
Because of artists like The Neptunes, to Busta Rhymes, to Timbaland and Missy Elliot, I became overwhelmed with all the unique and stimulating styles and genres that were being blended so well with Hip Hop, that it turned me on to seek out these genres individually and try to incorporate them with in my own productions; whether it’s an electro bass line, pop melody or rock riff.
To this day I continue to listen, learn and appreciate music production and composition in all of it’s forms and intricacies.
