TWO OF MY FAVORITE PRODUCERS OF ALL TIME JIMMY JAM HARRIS III & TERRY LEWIS…

From the SOS band back in the late 80’s, The Time, Prince, Force MD’s with “Tender Love” Alexander O’Neal, Usher, Janet Jackson I mean this list goes on and on! These guys changed the face of R&B with there mixture of urban style and pop flavor. Jimmy & Terry really influenced the way I approched my musical career as a producer & composer. I would listen to not only the way that they would wright songs, but also how there mixes and production techniques were always so pristine and orchestrated. Thank you Jimmy & Terry for not only being great producers, but also some really cool people.
