#TeamRoberts “Beat As One”

Military families endure some of the toughest challenges possible; not only during deployments, but sometimes even more so after they return home. Battling mental illness, U.S. Marine Veteran Michael Roberts and his wife Myra struggled to regain their lives together. During their toughest times, Michael credits his wife Myra’s love, patience, prayer, and understanding to strengthen him through this new battle that they enduring together.

Having originally met while Michael was stationed in Japan, the world map represents their travels and the beauty in cultural differences they experienced along the way. The drum sticks, music notes, and vinyl represent the impact music has made on their family and how it brought them all together within the backyard of the Motown. The heart on the front of the shirt symbolizes his wife’s belief that, “Love is the main ingredient needed to heal the invisible wounds of the heart, soul and mind.”

Their design encourages individuals, families, communities, & societies to come together in love, patience, & empathy to overcome any differences in order to live in harmony and to “Beat As One.”

Dr. Dre “The Chronic”

Greetings Colleagues,

This week’s blog post will be a topic of choice. The topic that I have chosen to elaborate on is Record Producer, Rapper and Entrepreneur Andre Romelle Young aka “Dr. Dre”, CEO of Aftermath Productions.   Dr. Dre has impacted Artist like Snoop Dog, Ice Cube, Warren G, 50 Cents, Eminem, and Groups such as Blackstreet to say the least. Nevertheless, Rap and Hip Hop among the popular music genre has never been the same since Dre stepped on the scene. In 1992, he founded Death Row Records with Suge Knight, rapidly becoming the driving force in 90’s Hip Hop with “The Chronic” solo debut.

The Chronic”, transformed the entire sound of West Cost Rap” (Steve Huey, AllMusic.com). Features that brands this album irreplaceable, is the fact that Dre founded this original G-Funk sound mixed with a Funkadelic type of beat, soulful backing vocals, and live instruments paired with bass lines and extravagant synths. Both him and Snoop together had a chemistry that not one person could emulate. With their Dolemite stylistic introductions and cartoon like skits, this became a requirement for other rap albums looking to “Swagger Jack” their photographic rhymes. The Chronic still to this day is one of the greatest and most influential hip-hop albums of all time.

I remember when I first heard this album, I was on my way to school and my brother was driving. He was playing “F**k Wit Dre Day” very loudly and I was like “what in the heck is this? I never heard this kind of music and it sounds weird”. The impression that it left on my at that time was simple, I could not understand why he was talking so badly about this person, but he really made that man mad. The music was awesome and the lady at the end singing was at the time, my favorite part. As an industry professional, I totally understand the whole concept of the album and how they were able to capture both sound and setting to deliver a movie type of feel. Nevertheless, Dr. Dre was very clever in making a point about any subject and painting the setting very well.

Applying all this knowledge I have collected is no easy task, it takes practice plus perfecting the beat, as Dr. Dre says. In order to be versatile, I must research and develop a work habit that engages the creativity of the art itself. Studying the very concept that made its existence to the extreme, keeping in mind the challenges that were faced in the make. In the next five years, I plan to do just that with a relentless mind set to purpose advancing my career endeavors. Thank you very much for reading my blog post and have a blessed day.

Marvin Gaye’s “Whats Going On”

Greetings Colleagues,

Marvin Gaye was one of the best artists of all time. “The Prince of Motown” is one of his nicknames; he went on to release an album that would be remembered as Motown’s 1st #1 album. The album that Berry Gordy Stated, “The worst thing I’ve ever heard in my life”, sold 100,000 copies in the first day of January 1971. Coming in at #2 on the pop charts that year and #3 on R&B, a first for Motown Records, aka “Hitsville”.

The music and image of Marvin Gaye prior to the recordings of “What’s Going On” was of a passionate nature. He sung about sex and love and was an image in Motown that displayed smoothness and kind-hearted. Social neighborhood concerns and national crisis influenced the lyrical content of the album. His brother Frankie was a Vietnam Veteran and after a long crying talk with him, he wanted to write something that addressed the social and international concerns in a positive manner.

Renaldo Obie Benson originally came up with the idea and presented it to Marvin and they spent countless hours in Hitsville, creating what will become the hallmark of Marvin’s style. When time came for recording and releasing “What going on”, there were many obstacles that Marvin had to face. One main challenge was convincing Gordy to release it. Marvin passed time by training with the Detroit Lions for the upcoming season that year, but was later turned down to play in the opening game.

During this timeframe, Motown with the help of Jack Ashford and James Jameson, created live quality production work. The instrumentation, studio musicians, and lyrics all played a big role in the success of Motown. With 75 producers and about 150 songwriters, Hitsville was just as good as the name it had created.  I love the song “What Going On” and as a listener, it has changed the way I view music to this day. As an industry professional, there was great creativity and passion that went into the making of this awesome masterpiece.

I thank God for such an experience and I believe it was stated in an article on the album that there had to have been another force at work when the release of the album finally dropped, because Gordy was not backing down.

With Respect,

Michael Roberts

The Grammies !

Greetings Colleagues,

Tonight’s blog post is about the Granny’s and how the industry recognizes the artwork of multiple genres. The Grammy Awards first started in 1958 and many of the awards categories have come and gone over the years. The Gospel genre started in 1961, where Mahalia Jackson won Best Gospel or Other Religious Recordings 7th Annual Grammy Award for “Everytime I Feel The Spirit”. This genre has changed over the years in a variety of ways and has brought more attention to its unique nature. It has gone from Religious Recordings to Sacred Performances in 1967 and back to Gospel Performances – Traditional in 1977, for the song “Just A Little Talk With Jesus” by Oak Ridge Boys. Mahalia Jackson created a sub-genre for many different artists. Kirk Franklin receives the most recent sub-category Granny Award in 2011 for “Best Gospel Album”. There are many differences in new sub-genres form the old ones. Some have contemporary and others have traditional awards. Sometimes music from specific geographic locations plays a factor because of its unique situation. Overall, the Grammies is one of the best experiences an artist or musician could ever dream for.

The Beach Boys

BEACH BOYS

This week, the topic of discussion is about some of the most influential recordings of the 1960’s. In order to understand music as a whole and be able to identify it’s distinctive nature, we must study music as if it was an academic subject.   Performing its diverse or cultural class, cultivates scholars to research why and how people was influenced by their music. Ultimately, who was influenced by their music? “Industry Professionals” is the term that Full Sail University utilizes to identify the caliber of its individual students and here in this blog, I am confident we will answer these question.

To start, the Beach Boys album entitled “Pet Sounds” influenced everyone who listened to it. Released on May 16, 1996, on Capitol Records, it was The Beach Boys 11th studio album. It is the most influential record ever released in the western pop music cultural and had ranked #1 in countless magazines list of greatest albums of all time. Also ranked #2 on in Rolling Stones 500 Greatest Albums of all time. It is the second most acclaimed album of all time next to The Beatles “Revolver”.   Brian Wilson works on this album with an advanced approach personally for the group. He quit touring with the band just to focus his attention on writing and recording. As a result, “Pet Sound” was created several months later.
