Born in the United Kingdom, with a degree (in both Acting and Psychology), Brass made his way to Universal Records where he launched his career, initially behind the scenes in the corporate side, then as a Hip Hop artist as well as a producer of Hip Hop. But Pop and Dance would not be far behind.
An alchemist of music, rapping and songwriting, his career as a producer/ lyricist lead straight to Bollywood and Oscar winner AR Rahman where his musical spirit could run free. It also steered him toward what would become a long-term collaboration with AR Rahman’s team and Bollywood directors Shekhar Kapoor (Elizabeth) and Jagmohan Mundhra (Provoked) that began in 2005 and continues to this day.
As a gifted muciscian with a great heart (that comment comes straight from his students), Brass Tax has passed on his knowledge and experience to a multitude of young musicians both privately and through his workshops in Miami. As a progressive composer and arranger, Brass Tax’s work has been recognized by the industry in many ways but is a Battle Rapper at heart, including taking First Prize in the Live audience Jump Off battle Rap Tournaments in Miami Florida.
Brass Tax’s two forthcoming recordings are both surprising and Emotional. The first, Blunt Force Trauma - is the first in a series of Mixtapes, encompassing a wide array of vocal ability and emotions, but raw to the core. The second is the eagerly anticipated UK debut Hip Hop Album “Heat Of The Moment”-Universal, which is set to be released later in 2011.
You may have to stop and take a deep breath just from reading what Brass Tax has accomplished to date - but he won't! Brass’ ideas, spark, talent and enthusiasm know no limits. He is the future and with that unmistakable voice and raw hip hop sound – often compared to Grammy Award Winner Timbaland, He's off and running again, bringing his abundant talents and tireless spirit to the next endeavor as 2011 is the year of Brass Tax!!
