Description

Pope’s production skill and musicality set the foundation for a successful award winning career as a DJ and producer touring the world as one half of an electronic duo. Times were good but something was missing. The partnership became increasingly fraught and like most things in life, ended. One of the final records the duo released was inspired by Pope’s Supertrampesque keys and featured, for one of the first times, vocals written and performed by Pope. This was the key that Pope had been searching for, the freedom of expression that he had been missing. Everything became clear, safety in numbers had prevented Pope from taking a solo risk, shadows cast back to the days when papa Pope left home. Not anymore. Pope hunkered down in the studio and set to writing and producing original records and songs. In tandem he began training his voice and refining his unique vocal tone. Pope cites a wide range of musical influences including soul, electronica, dance, R&B spanning many artists including Prince, Chopin, Quincy Jones, Tower Of Power, Chaka Khan, Marvin Gaye to name a few. In an age of music by numbers and generic vocals, Pope’s production, influences, musicality, distinctive voice and large vocal range all come together to make his performances and records special and truly distinctive.
