Today we’d like to introduce you to PromoBoi.
Hi PromoBoi, so excited to have you with us today. What can you tell us about your story?
I basically started like any kid Seening 106 & park videos wanting to be like bow wow and Soulja boy… waiting to my mom went to sleep to sneak and record on the desktop company… I was super shy. I don’t even think my mom heard me talk without being questioned, lol but started recording songs since I was eight years old then kept at it and got my first break at 16 years old when I got signed to Soulja boy label “ SODMG”
Alright, so let’s dig a little deeper into the story – has it been an easy path overall and if not, what were the challenges you’ve had to overcome?
Definitely not… a lot of record execs would laugh when I told them I wanted to start producing for artists because I never had a platinum record myself.
Can you tell our readers more about what you do and what you think sets you apart from others?
I’m a Songwriter/Producer. I think I really specialize in R&B and bringing color to every record I touch. I’m most proud of my head for detail and making sure the production is always pulling emotion out of you… sometimes I sleep with records and let them take me places and see what emotion comes from me by playing the record back 10 times straight.
Networking and finding a mentor can have such a positive impact on one’s life and career. Any advice?
I always made sure I gave my mentors their flowers… I looked up to Brian Micheal Cox, Benny Blanco, Sean Garrett, Tim Kelly and these guys all ended up seening my drive and coaching me and helping me with records… but it all started with showing them respect and always showing organic love.
