"Boss" which shattered records last November with over a million downloads in 48 hours, was used on an episode of Lethal Weapon! I'm super excited to see all of our hard work be used on a major network!

Back in August, I was so honored to be invited to the first ever BMG SoundLab in Beijing, China. There we began writing the song "Boss" with mega super star Lǐ Yǔchūn (Chris Lee). Little did we know at the time, that this session would birth what will become the biggest song of the year in China, but also around the world!
Congrats to the whole entire BMG China and BMG US team this week, as well as my collaborators Nick Atkinson .and Lǐ Yǔchūn
Chris Lee "Boss" has set the new record for most music downloads in a 7 day period. "Boss" is expected to surpass more than 1.5m downloads in it's first week. Staggering numbers, and the biggest song of the year!

Was so stoked to see our little song come to life as part of the blockbuster movie "Lego: Ninjago"
Congrats to my collaborator Jenson Vaughan for writing this with me, as well as all our peeps at BMG Music Publishing and Ultra Music Publishing for making this happen!
Check it out in theatres...
Amazing news!! Wanting has finally released her album "Love, Loss and Latitude."
This was a huge deal for me, as it was really the first time that she trusted someone else, and allowed them in to her creative process. Out of it came 11 incredible songs, of which I had the pleasure of not only producing all of it, but actually co-writing 8 of the 11 songs!!!
On top of all of it, Wanting is a tremendous chef, and was more than eager to make her special noodles for us whenever we asked.
Congrats to Island Records artists Mic Lowry on releasing "Don't Tempt Me." It is the lead single from their upcoming "Mood" EP scheduled to hit iTunes October 18, 2017.
Already, the song is featured on Spotify's new music Friday along side other incredible artists like DJ Mustard, Demi Lovato and The Killers.
Congratulations to my co-writers Jordan Humphrey and Nana The Writer.

Congrats to RiRi and the whole Sony Japan Team for another #1. So excited to have worked with her for a third time. Check out "Nothing To Do" co-written with Natalie Hawkins and Minnie P.
So excited to announce the release of "We Light Forever Up" co-written by Me, Jenson Vaughan, and of course Benny Bennassi. I also had a chance to co-produce the song with Benny as well as Lush & Simon. Thanks to Ultra Records, and everyone else involved. Mostly Jenson for connecting the dots and sending the original song to Benny in the first place. Also congrats to Frederick for singing a truly amazing vocal!!!
So excited about this recent placement that just started running 2 weeks ago!
"Say Hey!" performed by Black & Gray makes it's TV National debut as the soundtrack in the new Zaxby's commercial! Congrats to my partner Beau Black for always bringing the heat when we do these songs. Together we have had placements with AT&T, LG, ABC, Modern Family, Nissan, and another dozen or so Film and TV projects.
We are back in the studio this week to churn out some more sweat rock! Stand by!
What an incredible run we have had with That's All I Need - Dirty Heads. Not only was the "That's All I Need," the most added at radio 4 weeks in a row, but the album just made it's debut on July 15, 2016. It's incredible to see the fruits of our hard work pay off as the album debuts at #1 Alternative and #2 all genres on iTunes.
Check them out on tour coming to a city near you!
So excited to see all the incredible reactions to this little pop song we whipped up together back in January. Sometimes it just all makes sense. Great bunch of guys who deserve every bit of success coming to them. Congrats to Jared, Duddy, Matty, Dave and Jon!!! Thanks for having me involved.
Incredibly excited about the new Dirty Heads single "That's All I Need" (Co-written and Produced by me), which was the most added song at Alternative Radio for the week of May 9, 2016. Had a blast working with the guys. It's amazing to see how a song can connect to people all over the world. Let's get this to #1. Contact your local radio station and request it!!
Also check out the video below! It's hitting about 40k plays a day!
Sisters starring Tina Fey and amy Poehler comes out this coming December 18. Yes...it is the same day as Star Wars, and we may debut at #2, but I don't care. I was so happy to be a part of this soundtrack, having Co-produced (along with Harvey Mason Jr.), the final song in the film "What Christmas Means To Me."
Awesome news! The song "Whatchawant" written and performed by Black & Gray is currently airing nationally in Nissan's "Bottom Line Model Clearance" advertisement. This is the logical extension from an earlier project that Beau Black and I did a few years ago, when we enjoyed many Ad placements including AT&T, LG and Mercedes Benz among others.
Stand by for more Black & Gray...oh and our first song is available on iTunes world-wide!
Super stoked to have the co-written/co-produced the first single for Warner Music Germany's Leslie Clio. The song is called "My Heart Ain't That Broken," and it's already cracking top 30 at pop radio throughout Europe.
Here's the video link...Enjoy!
Afetr 2 years of writing, recording, producing and re-writing, re-recording and re-producing, I am so proud to have this incredible project see the light of day! This EP is the first of 2 releases including a full-length to be released this summer.
So grateful to my good friends at SOCAN for giving me this #1 award to my song "Je Crie Ton Nom" as performed by Jonas and The Massive Attraction. Went #1 in Canada over Christmas 2013.
Last year I had the awesome privilege of working with an incredible artist named Noel Schajris. Formerly, Noel was 1/2 of one of the biggest pop groups in Latin music history "Sin Bandera." Well...yesterday, the album we made together called "Verte Nacer," of which I co-wrote the title track, and produced 5 others (along with some pretty notable collaborators like John Legend), went #1 in Noel's home country of Mexico. Couldn't be more excited to be a part of his incredible project. Gracias Noel!!!
It was so crazy. Last week I found out a song I co-wrote was being recorded. Next thing I know, it hits #1 and knocks off Enrique.
