TheyCSmith / Bio

Hey everybody this Carnell C Smith aka C.Smith. I would like to welcome you to my page. I am a producer coming out of Detroit, Mi born and raised. I always had a ear for good music growing up as a kid. Music I wasn't suppose to listen to I decided to because I had a mature ear I know a good song when I hear it. I grew up around my grandma so that's where I get my soulful taste from. Listening to people such as earth wind and fire, al green,commodores, patti labelle, and numerous other. But who influenced me into getting into hip hop was listening to dr. dre and snoop dogg in the early 90s. Timbaland came in the picture in the mid 90s and brought this distinct sound that I never heard before and that was when I knew producing music was something I must do in my future. Neptunes came along in the late 90s early 2000s and thats when I said this is what I want to do! I didnt have access to any equipment or software for me to explore with my producing so I always used to beat on the tables or hum beats to myself and hope that they stay in my head. Freshmen year at michigan state I came across a few people that had the same music interest as myself. Then my friends Robert Davis And Jenon Lipsey introduced me to the fruity loops 5 software in 2005 and in 2006 reason 3. For the past five years now I have just been trying to grow a producer and to advance my craft. i would think I am one of the most versatile up and coming producers. I can make that hip hop, r&b and the pop tracks. I have also experimented with some neo soul as well. I make original instrumentals and I also sample. There are multiple ways of sampling. I usually "try" to find a song some one never did which is hard to do or at least something I haven't heard sampled myself. Making music makes me feel good especially when the project is completely done. You can sit back and say to yourself "i made this".
