Let’s take a trip down memory lane. Remember your alphabets? The letter E always comes before P, but there is power when the two (“EP”) come together.
Although, there is nothing elementary about CEO, Earl Powell of Eptone Productions it is always important to remember how things are created. Native Chicagoan has made a mark for himself working with singers like Jennifer Hudson, Syleena Johnson and Slique just to name a few. As if that wasn’t enough the producer, song writer and actor can be seen turning heads on the big screen as Powell has also worked along side Debra Messing in “Nothing like the Holidays”. All that’s missing is a clothing line and he’s got you Diddy.
One of the many definitions for the word “real” is true or authentic. The talents at Eptone Productions represent every bit of what real music should and used to be before it became more about looks and less about talent. Artist like Slique are burning up the Billboard with hit tunes such as “Your Body” and can’t forget our other native, the beautiful songbird Jenifer Hudson always holding it down with “Stand Up” (Deluxe Edition).
Eptone Productions has produced tracks for many independent and established artists. Eptone has also produced songs for RCA and Platinum Records. I caught up with Powell, Slique and S at the Victor Hotel for a meet and greet.
