We had the good fortune of connecting with Prop The Producer and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Prop, what led you to pursuing a creative path professionally?
Music has been apart of my life as far as i can remember. Most of my family members has some sort of musical background singing dancing or playing an instrument so it was only natural for me to gain my own curiosity to experiment. I started off writing songs and just had to find a way to take my music to the next level so i developed and interest in production and engineering so i could make songs easier and faster. It got tp the point where it became a side job and i started making money on the side doing what i love. All of a sudden i lost my job and started using music as more of a full time gig until i found something else but it never happened. I don’t think i would’ve had the courage to quit my job as i was working there for 6 years and just bought my first house but when it happened and i spent that extra time perfecting my craft it became natural and i couldn’t see myself doing anything else.

Alright, so let’s move onto what keeps you busy professionally?
The music field is definitely more popular nowadays especially with all the technological advancements in place i dont think it has ever been easier to learn. so i think what sets me apart in this crowded market is the thing that separates me from other producers is my ear for sounds and work ethic. having a different sound also helps. Im most excited about the fact that it seems like even after all these years it seems like im just beginning my career and the opportunities are in abundance. Also getting my first billboard charting placement gave me a hunger to keep going that never seems to go away its has its moments of being very difficult and time consuming but staying consistent and pushing through has showed me half the battle is showing up.

Any places to eat or things to do that you can share with our readers? If they have a friend visiting town, what are some spots they could take them to?
If you know me im a big foodie so when im not in the studio im probably out somewhere trying out a new restaurant or going to a dive bar for a drink. One of my favorite restaurants in Sacramento is Tapa the world and the best drinks in town come from the Flame Club Hands down!
