Eddie B From Dallas ,Tx , but now living in the Los angeles area.
The piano but still learning

How did you break into the music industry?

I use to be in the band back in middle school then in college I was in a rap group, we didn't have anyone making beats for us so we was using industry beats to record on , until I bought my first keyboard witch was the Triton 88 keyboard and the rest is history .

Choose one adjective to describe your production style?


Do you write your songs as well? If so, what are your songs about and where do you draw your inspiration?
I dont write as much as I use too, I have writers that do that for me now . I sometimes assist on the writing sessions but my writers are great .

What project are you currently promoting and is it available for purchase?

Im not working on any specific projects , at this point im stacking Beats
and shopping.

If you could sign with any label which would it be and why?

Theres a lot of labels out there but If I have to say it would say Cash money records because cash money started at the bottom and with the hard grind now there on top ,,so I really do like there work ethic and reminds me of mine.

How would you define the word success?

Success to me is being happy ,, accomplishing all your goals,

What is your biggest career embarrassment?

Tried to be a solo artist lol

Most memorable moment in creating one of your records?

My most memorable moment in creating one of my records would be the time when I lost everything a few years ago. I was sleeping on my friend's couch and I havent made a beat for about 6months.
My friend had a laptop that had this music program installed on it. One day I tried to make a beat, which ended up being a track I sold to a international artist in japan. The artist released a video with my triack on it, and it became a big hit in japan. I was at the lowest point of my life, but at that time I realized I was meant to do music.

Name a celebrity people say you look like. Lol this a funny question cause I get everybody:


Who has been the most influential person in your music career?

I would say me ,, ive been through a lot of trials and tribulations

What artists would you love to work with?

Theres no one artist I would love to work with. I would love to work with everybody. Not just in Hip hop music, but in all genres.

What is your worst Fear?

I would have to say my worst fear is failure.

What is your guilty pleasure?

I live in LA so use your imagination lol

Any advice or lessons learned in the music industry that you would like to
share with other indie artists?

I would tell others just to never give up. Dont get discouraged, and if u feel like that then this business is not for you. Ive had the door shut in my face a million times and all I can say is that I'm still here doing it, perfecting my kraft and getting better.

I would also encourage others to learn the business. Pick up a book, take some courses in school or online. Be knowledgeable and prepare yourself because things can get ugly in this industry. The more you know, the better youll be.

When looking for inspiration what albums do you listen to?

Wow this is a hard question for me because there so many great albums I get my inspiration from. Lately I've been listening to Kid Cudi, Man On the Moon , Wiz Khalifa's Rolling Papers album, MGMT's Oracular Spectacular album, all of Outcast albums, lil waynes The Carter 2 , and 5ocents Get Rich or Die Trying. I like left field out the box music because I feel my music is different from what's out there now.
