We were fortunate enough this time around to talk ish with someone who plays a major role in the music scene without actually making music of his own, but as a Senior VP and A & R at an up and coming music company, The Committee Music Group. He is currently a senior in college, so yes he is a young entrepreneur doing his thing with an even a brighter future ahead of him. Can I Talk My Ish is proud to introduce Southside Chicago’s very own….Davron W. Boyd!!!
3 Voices: You are in college now, but not majoring in music. Is college just a backup plan or is music not your only passion?
Davron W. Boyd: When I started college I was talked into picking a major guaranteed to make money. So I ended up picking Computer science as a major. So I see school as a backup plan but I’m treating it like the same way I treat my career. So if all else fails I can always have a degree behind me.
3 Voices: You seem to be doing a lot in the industry, from party promotions to A&R. Which of these jobs do you prefer?
Davron W. Boyd: Hmmm, that’s tough. But I’ll say being an A&R, when CHI, The CEO of The Committee Music Group, offered me the position it was unbelievable I knew I was getting closer and closer to my dreams. I’ve always had a strong passion for music and being in a position where I can help young upcoming artist is what really drives me.
3 Voices: What is rapfiendmusic.com?
Davron W. Boyd: rapfiendmusic.com is my answer to music artist who say that blogs don’t pick up their music or say blogs are Hollywood etc. It is a site that promotes upcoming music artist, producers and models. But it is becoming much more than a website, so you all stay tuned for much more to come from us.
3 Voices: What has your experience in the industry been like?
Davron W. Boyd: It has been an experience. I’ve taken different paths to get where I am, even though I am nowhere close to where I want to be. I’ve been cheated out of deals, had money stolen from me, been through a lot. But I wouldn’t trade any of those experiences because they have made me the person I am today.
3 Voices: Are there any celebrities that you may have gotten the privilege to meet and work with or would like to meet and possibly work with?
Davron W. Boyd: I’ve met 2Chainz, Brandon T. Jackson, King Louie, Chella H, Spenzo, Derrick Rose, Luol Deng, Chris Bosh, and Mario Chalmers. I would love to meet Kanye West and work with him. I would also like to meet Diddy, R. Kelly, Barack Obama, Big K.R.I.T. and Kevin Gates just to name a few.
3 Voices: You have achieved so much & you’re still so young. What goals do you still have for the future?
Davron W. Boyd: A lot. I still want to give back to the community. I’ve always had a dream of opening a studio for upcoming artist to record at. I want to make sure some of the artist I work with get Major deals. A huge goal of mines is to make it possible that my mom, dad, or sister never have to work again. I just want to do a lot my main goal is to truly become a successful Music Mogul.
3 Voices: Tell us about the scholarship work you do? Are there other projects that you work on in the community?
