Mother's Favorite Child/Paris Toon
Official Biography (courtesy of Paris Toon)
Paris Toon is the Billboard Award-winning lyricist and musical enigma behind Mothers Favorite Child. He is an extraordinary (soon to be published) poet, composer and producer who never seems to stray for a moment from his forward driven vision of success in the music world.
Paris started out as a hip-hop producer in the mid 90's and has done production and remix work for many different projects during his career. His influences range from Rakim and Curtis Mayfield to Sly Stone, Prince and John Lennon. These influences make themselves evident in his compositions and many of the lyrics he writes. As newer artists like D’Angelo, Jill Scott, Adele and Ledisi came about, Paris’s inspiration grew in even broader directions while still holding firmly to musical pioneers from the past. His writing style has taken the genres of Soul, Jazz and R&B to a level unfamiliar to most, provoking intense curiosity and appreciation for the “next phase” of Soul music.
With these inspirational forces embedded in his spirit, Paris Toon has set out on the mission to push Mothers Favorite Child to the front of the music lines. Paris is the binding force of Mothers Favorite Child. His passion and “full speed ahead” attitude make it possible for those who work with him to focus on the most important thing; the music. Whether it’s Soul, R&B, Jazz or Funk music, Mothers Favorite Child is armed with everything it needs to propel honest, raw and timeless music to the masses. Paris Toon seems to have an instinctive ability to spot the uniqueness of an artist. The pairing of his eloquent prose with the exceptional vocal, musical and performance abilities of each performer was no accident. What may have appeared to be a random hand-picking of musicians actually serves as an example of Paris’s divine intuition. This exquisite combination of intuition and raw talent is the very essence of the Mothers Favorite Child brand of Soul music.
