SongVault Artist Profile
Indiana, United States
Urban / HipHop / Rap
First off, D'NAS Productions is not a band, but rather a production company. Whereby, I am my own production company, thusly the only member. Although, I do like to do collaborations with other artists in between my solo projects. I compose, arrange, engineer, and from time to time as a memebr of somebody's band, yep you guessed it, I perform. (TAH DAAAHH!!! -currently not in a band nor am I looking to be- LOL).
My influences are many, but here are just a few: My Mom (aka. Contra Mom on MySpace.com- vocalist/songwriter), and step-father Victor McCadd (Nommo- jazz trumpet), Carter Jefferson (jazz saxophonist -R.I.P), The Spinners, Earth, Wind and Fire, James Brown, George Clinton, Marvin Gaye, Parliment Funkadelic, Al Green, Curtis Mayfield, Mother's Finest, Chaka Khan, Stevie Wonder, The Jackson 5, Manhattan Transfer, Miles Davis, Freddie Hubbard, Lee Morgan, Dizzy Gillespie, John Coltrane, Kenny G, David Sanborn, Everett Green (I think that's his last name lol), Brian McKnight, Maxwell, Main Ingredient, and DAngelo, Luther Vandross, Smokey Robinson, Rodney Franklin, Dave Brubeck, The Sugarhill Gang, Run DMC, Kool Moe Dee, Grand Master Flash and The Furious Five, Mastadon, and Salt-N-Pepa.
I know it's not much of a BIO, but it's a start. So until I actually sit down and put one together, this will have to do. lol Until then, sit back, relax, and allow my music and I to entertain you. Thanks for stopping by, Enjoy!
