Lil Brian is an independent Music Artist/Producer, born and raised in Hollywood, FL!
Music and rhythm always gravitated to him at a young age.
His earliest experience with music and performance started in his Elementary School’s “Singing Stars” choir program at Pasadena Lakes Elementary School. Although he only participated in his 4th grade year, this was around the same time Brian started to have interest in writing songs, being inspired by the early music of the 2000’s, and specifically by artist such as Usher, Ne-Yo, and Sean Paul. He wrote a few songs and lyrics every now and then at this time but nothing too serious ever happened..
His interest in music continued on to Driftwood Middle School, where in 6th grade he played the Alto Saxophone, then in 7th grade, he switched to playing percussion.
Around the end of his 7th grade year is where he decided to start writing lyrics again, except this time, he knew he wanted to take his interest in music serious, specifically in the hip hop/rap genre.
[One of his main inspirations of this time came from discovering a CD named “The College Dropout” by an Artist named, Kanye West. At first he skimmed through it until he found a familiar track that he loved, which was “Jesus Walks,” and after realizing Kanye was the man behind one of his favorite rap songs, he decided to give the CD a chance and that’s when he choose to thoroughly go through the album and the rest is history. This album is one of the main things that sparked and inspired Brian to become, “Lil Brian”]
Lil Brian shared many great experiences and performances with his fellow bandmates throughout his years at Driftwood Middle School, but this was not the end of his pursuits and passion for music.
Brian continued on by joining the drumline of the Spartan Pride Marching Band at Hollywood Hills High School. Freshmen year, he started as the 2nd Bass, then moving on to Snare Drum for the rest of his high school career.
These are the years that sparked the most of Lil Brian’s dreams, visions, and creativity. From performing with the band in Orlando at the “Battle of the Bands” event, as well as Marching in Chicago at the McDonald’s Thanksgiving Parade in 2011, to performing every year at his high school’s talent shows; these are the times Lil Brian learned the most about showmanship and what it truly means to be a musician and a performer.
Alongside from being a musician in his school’s Band Programs, Lil Brian spent much time doing research on what was needed to record and produce music of his own. Slowly, he transformed his bedroom to his “home studio,” where he made all of his earliest works.
His mind wasn’t too much on school, due to lack of interest. But he always had a bright mind and ideas of being an entrepreneur and being a provider to his family, being that him and his family didn’t have the best financial situation at home.
His mother was a single mother and his father was in and out of his life. His father actually tragically passed away in 2012 when he was in 11th grade, when he was only at the age of 16 years old. This truly affected him in his life…
Although he wasn’t the best student academically, he enrolled to Broward College in attempts for an AA in Music Technology after high school.
Even as Brian began his first classes in College, family related issues still struck which distracted Brian from his studies, which only resulted him to eventually drop from his classes.
At that point, he felt the school setting no longer served him well, and sitting at a school desk was only holding him back from providing to his family.
This is when he researched more deeply about success, financial freedom, and what it actually takes to run a music business, sell music, and sell beats.
And in September 2016, after much research on music and the industry behind it, he decided to go independent and officially founded “Lil Brian Productions LLC” setting off his future career in the music industry and his pursuits to impact the world through his art, music, thoughts, and expressions!
From that time up until now, Lil Brian has been experimenting, improving his business, and actually went through a bit of rebranding with his business, in efforts to clearly display what Lil Brian and his business represents.
Lil Brian is in preparation for an official “Grand Opening/Launch” date for LBP.
And as far as Lil Brian Productions goes, his goal with his business is to share quality and impactful music/art to the world, collab with likeminded artist and producers, and help beginner music artists and producers with the info they need to succeed!
At this time, Lil Brian is currently working on building his official catalog of music and beats for official release.
He also spends time making videos for YouTube, blogging, and gaming/living streaming.
