Eric Seats

Eric Seats是很多明星最喜愛的伴奏鼓手,兩個女兒的父親,音樂導師以及“Next Great Drummer”節目的執行制片人。“Next Great Drummer”會跟蹤報道采訪美國巡演的充滿抱負的鼓手,並且力爭全市“最佳鼓手”頭銜。接下來是“Next Great Drummer”的全國和全球比賽。這個節目得到了Sam Ash Music和Spaun Drums的贊助。這個節目目前正穿越整個國家,采訪大大小小的演出,並且還計劃前往日本和歐洲。

 

Eric還是Key Beats股份有限公司的聯合創始人,這個由Rapture Stewart和Eric Seats成立於1997年的公司集結了很多優秀的音樂/歌曲作家和制片人。他們會和很多藝術家壹起參加巡演,比如Montel Jordan。Rapture還做了Timbaland, Missy Elliott, Aaliyah, Ginuwine 和Playa的音樂總監。Timbaland發現了他們的制作才能,之後他們兩個都和Warner/Chappell公司簽了出版協議。

 

Eric獨特而具有代表性的音樂才華在壹些及其成功的專輯和作品中得到了淋漓盡致的展現,比如和Missy Elliot合作的為702樂隊表演的“Where My Girls At”。這首歌為與Blackground Entertainment公司的合作鋪平了道路。他和他的團隊還為李連傑和艾莉亞的動作電影《羅密歐必死》制作歌曲和配樂。

 

在為Destiny’s Child組合成員Beyonce Knowles制作歌曲的時候,他還為“Survivor”CD制作了“Independent Women (Pt. 2)”。這首歌是德魯·巴裏摩爾的電影《霹靂嬌娃》的原唱版本。

 

written by Static.在“Survivor”大獲成功之後,艾莉亞要求Eric和他的團隊繼續為她即將到來的項目工作。最終Eric和他的團隊包辦了唱片《Aaliyah》中壹半的制作,其中就包括Static寫的熱門歌曲第壹名“Rock Da Boat”。

Eric Seats is an accomplished drummer to the stars, a father of two daughters, mentor and now an Executive Producer of the Next Great Drummer. The Next Great Drummer show will follow aspiring drummers in a U.S. tour, covering contestants as they compete for the title of “top drummer” in their city. Followed by a national then international competition for the world’s ‘Next Great Drummer’. The show is sponsored in part by Sam Ash Music and Spaun Drums. The show is currently touring to venues across the country with plans already in the works for Japan and Europe.

 

Eric is also part of Key Beats, Inc., an amazing team of music/song writers and producers. This team was established in 1997 by both Rapture Stewart and Eric Seats. Together, they toured with such artists as Montel Jordan. Rapture went on to be the music director for Timbaland, Missy Elliott, Aaliyah, Ginuwine and Playa.

Eric’s music experience both singularly and collectively have paid off in chart topping successes like, “Where My Girls At” for 702 in collaboration with Missy Elliot. This song paved the way for a management deal with Blackground Entertainment. He and his team went on to produce songs for the Jet Li and Aaliyah hit movie and soundtrack “Romeo Must Die”.

 

While producing a song for Destiny’s Child member Beyonce Knowles, the opportunity came to also produce “Independent Women (Pt. 2)” for the “Survivor” CD. This was the original version that was recorded for the Drew Barrymore film “Charlie’s Angels”.

 

After the success of the Survivor soundtrack, Aaliyah requested that Eric and his team work on her upcoming project as well. The result was production for half of her record “Aaliyah” which included the number one hit “Rock Da Boat”, written by Static.

Eric, along with his team have gone on to produce and write music projects with the following other artists: Playa, 50 Cent, Lloyd Banks, Young Buck, Tony Yayo, DJ Whoo Kid, Travis Barker, T.I., DJ Drama, Young Dro, Jay-Z, Tweet, Nelly, Murphy Lee, DMX, Ashanti, Ja Rule, DJ Reflex, DJ Dense, Yung Joc, Diddy, Pharell, Busta Rhymes, Chingy, Fabolous, Tank, Keyshia Cole, Kanye West, Bubba Sparxxx, Nelly Furtado, Rich Boy, Soulja Boy, Lil’ Mo, D4L, En Vogue, Karen Clark-Sheard, The Soul Seekers, Mary Mary, Chante Moore, Kenny Latimore, Dave Hollister, Lalah Hathaway, Kelly Price, Patti LaBelle and Stevie Wonder.
