About Percy

PJ3 as an artist and producer, has worked in virtually every genre of music. In Western New York, at the age of 5, he showed glimpses of musical brilliance playing the piano and singing. Years later in high school, with the purchase of a drum machine, 4 track recorder and keyboard, he produced his first rap CD at the age of 15. That same year, he got accepted to Berklee College of Music's Summer courses. There, he was introduced to various styles of music including jazz, fusion and early forms of EDM.

When he was accepted at Berklee on a scholarship, he started performing and singing with the gospel choir under the direction of Dennis Montgomery III. Working off campus doing artist development for Maurice Starr, he had the opportunity to work with the "New Kids On The Block", "Marky Mark"(Mark Wahlberg) and programming and producing for Warner/ Elektra/Atlantic recording artist Chris Bender. Upon leaving Boston, he started a small independent production and recording label called, "Feelmore Ave. Records" in Buffalo, NY.
