Biography Hi, my name is Pierre. I was born and raised in Kentucky 1965. I know you may think, 'ooh god, another country music singer,' but that's not the case. It is true Kentucky is more or less understood as a place of heart breaking, tear jerking, country music, but that is one side of it. The other side is the African American side. In America when you look at a state you have to realize that there will be two major distinctive cultures. One culture will be of the Caucasian majority and another of the African American minority. I come from the African American minority. Every state in America has a 'Hood' (low income housing project) and there is music there. My greatest influences were Prince, the Time and Parliament. At my time of coming up in the Hood Funk music was the thing. A heavy base, cool drumbeat, complex cord structure and cool melodic brass were the classic Funk movement. Around 1981 I was in a DJ group called 'The MC Brothers' we spun records at several local hot spots and I got so much into music that I started building my own recording studio. My first keyboard was a mini Casio that had the little keys on it but it had one hell of a base sound. I started out with the Casio and a drum machine recording back and forth between two tape decks. One night one of the members got an idea to play my music. I was shocked at the response I got. To see people dancing and bopping to your music is cool. After I graduated From Bryan Station High School I began buying more and more pieces of recording equipment until I had achieved the point as to where I could make a master recording. For some reason I was intrigued with Electronics. Anything to do with electronics and I had to take it apart to see how it worked. I eventually attended Lexington Community College and received an Associates Degree in Electronics Engineering. This Degree led to a good job and now I could buy more studio equipment and make my music sound even better. I guess music and recording equipment is my drug. While building my recording studio I decided to make a CD, 'Sex Hype' is the result of that decision. I also created my own record company, 'S.L.R Records Inc'. My eventual goal is to get into producing other artist and making music for them. My Sex Hype CD has been sitting in the closet for a while but with the advancement of the Internet I now have another untapped marketing source. I am now working on a new style of Gospel CD; it mixes Gospel with a more Funk feel to it. I hope you enjoy Sex Hype. Look for the Gospel CD soon. Thank you, YH Bless Pierre.
