Official Biography (courtesy of Pvibez)
After grafting and plying his trade and getting attention on both sides of the Atlantic for his work with other artists shopping for deals - PVibez star was on the ascent..grabbing the attention of US grammy award winning producer Dave Cochrane among others.
After a few major setbacks and a label collapse he took a sabbatical, pondered quitting & flirted with the Fitness Industry before bouncing back to build his own studio and label to be totally independent and in control of his own destiny.
"I just went all in and spent a whole load of money on gear and taught myself new instruments, computer jargon and construction and engineering techniques. I just realized I had to learn to depend on just me, and me alone when it came to what I wanted from life. Working mostly alone was not a selfish thing to me. Its how I worked as a child in any of my creative endeavors. And that was how I grew up experimenting as a young musician with my piano, bass, guitar and drums. When it comes to the live experience..nothing can quite touch that gathering of souls being in the moment, but there is a subtle aesthetic in tinkering away in the middle of the night alone, creating something that is uniquely gifted to you!" Say's PVibez
It was around this time he got back onto the live circuit as a keyboard player for a then budding soul artist named Tasita D'mour (Reel People, Bah Samba, Copyright, DJ Kawasaki). With both parties finding a common musical understanding PVibez found himself collaborating on new material with Tasita, which enhanced the bands repertoire, and gave him the much needed experience (he sought) in recording with his new digital and analogue equipment.
PVibez stayed on the live circuit for a while by joining the now much lauded London Jazz Fusion outfit The Shez Raja Collective as keyboardist. On occasion he would also play drums in a Blues band as well as a Neo Soul outfit.
PVibez name began to gain attention with a few notable people in the industry on social media where he garnered interest and support from some wonderful seasoned artists as well as young upstarts ie guitarist Wil Harris (Parliament/Funkadelic, Tyka Nelson), Aziza Miller aka Linda Williams (pianist to Natalie Cole, solo artist & former teacher of Alicia Keys), Dennis Johnson (eng/prod Celine Dion, Bob Baldwin, Ragan Whiteside), Brit Funk Bass legend Camelle Hinds, Laurnea, Kwes (Damon Albarn, Bobby Womack), pianist Tokio Myers (a then Torville Jones) and many more. The one thing they agreed on at the time was the integrity and the raw soulful funkiness of his music.
PVibez intends to continue working behind the scenes producing, co-producing, collaborating and writing. Never the less he has also been enjoying the solo side as well. He has now notched up several solo projects under his belt.
His releases show two different sides..one side with vocal led projects and a very different side with experimental instrumental type releases. On the collaborative projects, the well received 'Vibezlab Sessions Vol's I & II' featuring Laurnea, Andrae Bentley, Lifford & Eshe Escoffery faired well in 2018 & 2019 respectively earning them a GroundBreakin Award nomination for Best Soul EP in 2019.
