HeartBeat Boys Biography What do pop teen icons, New Kids On The Block, R&B hit teen sensation New Edition and latest teen heart throbs HeartBeat Boys, all have in common? The answer is: legendary music mogul and mega-hit record producer, Maurice "The General" Starr. Famed and respected around the world for spearheading the contemporary boy band era, Starr has generated multi-platinum sales of more than 500 million units. In association with New Kids, Starr's name can be found in the Guinness Book of World Records for his sold-out concerts everywhere. He is mentioned on more than one million pages of the internet, for discovering, producing, promoting and managing two of the biggest and most successful teen acts in the history of the entertainment business. For this new venture, Starr has assembled the best entertainment dream team money can buy, in order to develop the members of the HeartBeat Boys into superstar artists. Starr's priority choice for choreographer is none other than industry veterans, Carlos "C-Los" Munoz and Tyron Proctor. C-Los has worked with many star acts ranging from the multi-platinum girl band TLC, solo platinum plus acts, Pink, Akon and P. Diddy to other top names in both the music and movie business. Starr predicts that the HeartBeat Boys will be the biggest teen act in the history of the entertainment business. The HeartBeat Boys members are: 11 year old David Crider, 13 year olds Patrick Joseph "PJ" Hoover and Ryan Findlay, 14 year old Emile Doles and 15 year old Nat Coombes. All of the boys are from Orlando Florida and surrounding areas. And all of the boys have had prior experience performing on the world stage of show business through acting, singing and dancing. It was Ryan's father, Don Findlay who first responded to a story that appeared in The Orlando Sentinel newspaper, announcing that Maurice Starr was planning to form a new group in the style of his original super group, New Kids On The Block, soon to be named HeartBeat Boys. Mr. Findlay contacted Starr by emailing a photo of his son Ryan, which included another kid, 10 year old David Crider, who just happened to be a singer as well. Both Ryan and David proved to fit the profile of the group, as far as the look and age range that Starr was looking for. Starr asked Mr. Findlay to inquire with David's parents to see if they would be interested in having their son join the group. Fortunately, they said yes! A few days later, Starr received a DVD in the mail from Patrick's dad, Marc Hoover, showcasing the young man's incredible dancing skills. With two positions remaining, Starr received a call from Celeste Hart, who works at the Orlando Opera house. She recommended two good-looking and very talented boys named Nat Coombes and Emile Doles. Starr agreed to meet with the boys at the opera house. Nat and Emile were so impressive, that Starr immediately brought them onboard. With his new boy band set and ready to go, Maurice Starr's HeartBeat Boys were born. Starr quickly setup a meeting with the boy's parents to discuss his goal to develop the best boy band ever. The parents jointly agreed to follow Maurice Starr's vision for success. The journey began with extensive training and rehearsals. An instant commitment to hard work prepared the boys for their very first show at Lawton Chiles Middle School, which Ryan attends. The group performed for more than 1700 screaming teens, most of whom were girls. The word was now out! Since the show, HeartBeat Boys have been in the recording studio laying down the tracks for their highly anticipated 2008 debut CD release entitled, "From The Heart". The album has a first quarter release date. The group also plans to release their first single, a Christmas song, prior to the release of the album. Starr feels that the "From The Heart" CD project is filled with his best ever writing and producing efforts. He also believes that HeartBeat Boys will become his all-time biggest discovery. Over the past few years, Starr has written back-to-back hit songs such as the multi-platinum selling "Laffy Taffy" by the chart-topping rap group D4L. His prolific string of hits for countless acts include releases from: LL Cool J, P. Diddy, Mase, Trina, Bow Wow and Lil Romeo just to name a few. Starr, along with the very cooperative parents of the HeartBeat Boys; Marc and Gail Hoover, Don and Roberta Findlay, Esther and Alan Coombes, Leesa Halstead and Gary Doles and David and Maribel Crider, proudly work together as a team. They strongly believe that "Teamwork Makes Dreamwork" and all are willing and ready to take the task on. So, Get Ready....Get Ready...Get Ready, here come the HeartBeat Boys!
