Just like its namesake in the Chinese Zodiac, 2011 - the Year Of the Rabbit - is off to a fast start.
This is especially true for our songwriter/producer client Keith Harris, who wrote two (2) Billboard Hot 100 Top 5 songs that have dominated the charts over the past six months, for the über hot Black Eyed Peas. The first is "Meet Me Halfway," which Billboard commended for its "...funk guitar, hand claps and distorted pulses." The Billboard Hot 100 #1 song, "Imma Be," praised as "a pounding, assertive club thumper," is a hip-hop reflective, pop credible song; proof positive that the Peas still possess their edge. ASCAP recently acknowledged Keith's participation in the song with a "#1 Plaque" presented for his songwriting contributions.
Keith Harris is also featured on the cover of the February 2011 issue of Modern Drummer magazine, as a feature interview with him reveals how he "made it to the tops of the pops" as a multi-platinum songwriter, producer and drummer.
Please join me in offering resounding congratulations, applause and a mighty drum roll to Keith Harris.
Best wishes to you in this year,
