Biography

In March of 2007, just 3 months before graduating from high school, Paris rediscovered his love for the performing arts and landed the title role in a stage production of The Wiz, which was directed by writer/director/actress Denise Dowse. Guided by Denise, actress Wendy Raquel Robinson, and singer/songwriter Stephan Terry, Paris gave a performance that received praise on television, radio, and newspapers/magazines. Two days after wrapping up The Wiz, Paris received a phone call from award-winning playwright Mark E. Swinton to read for a part in his upcoming production “What’s Going On” to which he landed one of the leading roles. Paris’ performance received great admiration from people such as Tyler Perry and Angela Bassett, and also put Paris in the running for an NAACP Theater Award nomination. In September 2007, Paris began doing some volunteer work in the music department of a non-profit children’s center in inner city Los Angeles. There he met Producer/Singer/Songwriter Chris Warrior and the two immediately clicked. After collaborating on a few projects for other artists, Chris convinced Paris to concentrate on his own musical career. Paris and Chris wrote and produced a couple of songs together for his album before realizing that their best work resulted when they came together as a team. So the duo formed the production/writing team The Eardrums. Aside from Paris’ tentatively titled “The Great Depression” project, they have also co-written and produced a song for artist Steph Jones, up-and-coming rapper H.O.P.P., and are arranging music for possible collaborations with notable artists in the industry. The sky is the limit for this young entertainer and he is determined to reach for the stars. His goal of becoming the most recognizable name in media is not only attainable but unquestionably mandatory by his standards. He believes his God given gift of music cannot be wasted nor should it be taken for granted. In this current world of copycat entertainers and unoriginal music makers, Paris believes he is what the entertainment industry needs to take it to the next level. So, in the carefully crafted words of Paris Montgomery… “The only remedies needed to mend a fractured world are love, peace, and real music. I consider each project I complete a band-aid, each person I reach a heart replacement, and each barrier I break down the reincarnation of hope…that can exist in our tomorrows.” Some people say he’s ahead of his time, he prefers being the future made present.
