I am an up-and-coming producer from Tampa Bay, FL now currently living in Miami, FL. I have been behind the scenes for a while working as a studio musician for grammy nominated producer Quincy S. of Beatnik Castle and for ProStar Studios, dozens of scores placed in movies, and as a member of the talented R&B band Rexp (Romantic Expressions). This is the first time in my life I have been able to put my music first. In undergrad my main focus was on basketball and school. I spent those years honing my craft as a pianist and producer. Following that I dedicated most of my time to my career and graduate school. However now is a time like none other in my life and I am ready to flourish!
My musical influences vary. A lot of my music is a result of the different music scenes I've been exposed to; and at the core of that is R&B. Being a member of Rexp provides me with so much exposure to talented singers, songwriters, poets, dancers, and musicians; they serve as a constant source of inspiration. I love what StarGate does production wise; their music is clean, catchy, and open for the songwriter. I love what the Neptunes do; not only are they one of the best hiphop producers of our generation, but musically they are one of the most creative. Diminished 7ths, augmented 9ths, minor 13s; they always find a way into their music. As a songwriter my biggest influence is Ne-Yo. He is the greatest songwriter of our generation.
Cranstan Cumberbatch, president of AmaznCran Creative Works, describes Neri, "J. Neri has truly earned his rank as one of the Hottest music producers in the bay! Dedicated to his craft, the artistry in his music is pure poetry. From the moment you press play your ears are seduced into his instrumentations ceraceous flow. Whether it's producing a track for one of my artist, movie, video, whatever... J. Ner's the company's go to guy! His attention to detail astounds me."
