Let me know if I need to fix your name.

 

Born in Hartford, CT, In January 2005, Chauncey’s professional breakthrough unexpectedly unveiled itself while sitting in on a tracking session for the song “Back Together Again,” performed by Freddie Jackson and Meli’sa Morgan, which was being produced by his uncle, Rahni Song.  After the engineer tracking the session received an emergency call, leaving immediately, his uncle turned to him, allowing Chauncey the opportunity to finish the tracking session as his Pro Tools tracking engineer.  At the end of the session, his uncle was impressed at the job-well-done and encouraged Chauncey to consider attending school to become a professional recording engineer. In fact, later that year the song reached #46 on the Billboard Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Singles & Tracks chart!  Since taking heed to his Uncle’s advice, Chauncey’s stellar career has steadfastly progressed as he has successfully worked on R&B titan Tyrese's album “Open Invitation” (2011)  which earned a GRAMMY nomination for Best R&B Album. Chauncey has also earned a double platinum Album award for Beyonce's

J. Michaels (aka Elder Moreh) is no stranger to music. He grew up playing drums and bass in church and backing up many gospel artists such as The Winans, Vickie Winans, Tramaine Hawkins, Richard Smallwood and a host of others.  Although he did not realize it, he began producing in his brothers little 4 track bedroom studio putting musical parts on each track and writing words to it. This experimental "hobby" then moved to a little room in his church. This is where J. & his cousin (CEO of Blockboyz Entertainment) Jayd Daniels, began to map out their future careers in music and sharpen their skills as producers. Soon after, he was doing work as a session musician and producing out of various major studios’s for a wide range of artists such as Immature, Montico, TCF Crew, Skin deep and worked with and learned from the likes of the late Wayne Brathwaite and Yogi Horton, Producers, Barry Eastman and Skip Anderson. In the early 90's, he landed a position on the production team of producer Rahni Song and became part of the group Kingdom. He learned much of his production skills and mixing technique from his mentor Rahni Song, a relationship which continues to this day. As founder of Hebrew Soul Global Media, he is currently working on producing Saxophonist Marlon Boone which is a joint venture with RSPN.
