This multi-talented creative musician, songwriter, vocalist, arranger and producer, has taken the music industry by storm. His versatile, lyrically inspirational songs and tremendous gift for creating memorable melodies out of the air are uniquely well known. As an exceptional musical visionary, his innate talent is shared with many aspiring recording artists in the Urban, R&B, Gospel and Jazz genres. Q Productions, Inc. was created to help these artists explore and fine-tune their own musical abilities and creativity. You can hear one of Q's Productions on the new Mike Phillips CD M.P.3 with Stevie Wonder,Norman Brown and Marcus Miller off the Hidden beach label. In addition, Q, P, Inc. Produces and engineering, as well as offers vocal coaching.
After transitioning to inspirational jazz, in 2003 the CD entitled “Better Late Than Never” hit the airwaves. This was a blend of jazz, pop, R&B and inspirational tracks, which received international acclaim. Today the popularity is still growing in the U.S., United Kingdom, Germany and Japan. With a contemporary jazz feel and subliminally spiritual message, “Better Late Than Never” smoothly highlights the various phases of life. Although, the title track “Better Late Than Never” pays tribute to Oscar winners Denzel Washington and Halle Berry, it also reminds listeners, “It is never too late to pursue your dream.”
Currently, “Q” has opened for top jazz artists such as: Jonathan Butler, Joe Samples and Pieces of Dream at various jazz concert series held in Atlanta. Also, he is performing (by special request) at corporate and cultural events throughout the country. His second CD “Everything You Need” is scheduled to be release in June. With great anticipation, he looks forward to breaking through today’s “Cookie Cutter” musical clutter with his own unique style and delivery. This smooth, mellow and uplifting music will satisfy all who hear it . . . guaranteed!

Jaijai, what a wonderful mission you've undertaken to create such a place for artistic minds to meet and share their hearts. A place to renew faded determinations, and revive lessened momentums. A place to display our wares and reconfirm to one another that we actually are on the right track.
I commend you, Jaijai, for caring so much that you created this castle of the heart for all of us. I want to share my praise for all of the new friends as well as old friends that I've met and will meet here in our castle. Here we can garnish the where-with-all, the strength, the conviction, and the selflessness through our symbiosis, to share our gift to the world with an unbiased agenda.
My mentor, Daisaku Ikeda says of art: "A beautiful flower delights and refreshes the hearts of all people equally, no matter what soil it grows in. That is the power of beauty. The same is true of great art. It is this spirit that the German poet Heinrich Heine sang of when he wrote that once the peapod bursts open, the sugar peas inside are for everyone to enjoy."
