Rodney Carter aka ICE, is a New York based singer/songwriter/producer born with music running through his veins. As a child, he demonstrated early signs of musical interest and talent but never took it seriously until many years later. With 14 years in the business, he has seen and embraced the various aspects of the music industry. He lists Donny Hathaway, Luther Vandross, James Taylor, and Sting as musical influences. His inspiration stems from every day life itself as he can quickly and efficiently transform and take an idea from thought into lyrics and ultimately into song.
For a while, Rodney performed as one half of the smooth R&B duo BRIDGE, along side his longtime writing and singing partner Eric Scott. While a part of BRIDGE, he toured the East Coast opening for artists the likes of: Usher, Changing Faces, Montel Jordan, Seven Mile, Allure, NIIU and Destiny. The late Teddy B. was enlisted as a vocal coach and helped groom and prepare BRIDGE with the requisite skills needed for long-term success in the industry. It is with these skills, that Carter honed and developed the craft of songwriting and vocal arranging. He also performed background vocals for underground rap groups Natural Elements and Committee for Life (CFL), and worked behind the scenes as a producer/songwriter on the 2003 independently released "Word on the Street."
Carter has worked with the notable producer Charlemagne, who has produced for artists such as Mary J. Blige, Missy Elliott, Jay-Z and R. Kelly to name a few. Charlemagne produced the BRIDGE demo, and later furnished the two with a multitude of tracks that they used to build a massive catalog of Hip-Hop, R&B, and Pop songs. Carter also crafted numerous songs with Wil Milton, who has produced for Louie Vega, Kevin Hedge, Jody Watley, Colonel Abrams, KimBlee, Andre Collins, and Byron Stingly among others.
It was with a Charlemagne-produced track, that BRIDGE created a promotional introduction for the critically acclaimed Hot 97 morning show with Doctor Dre and Ed Lover. That frequently-played promo allowed Rodney to establish his own publishing company, SOULICE (ASCAP). Currently, Rodney has two singles available "Run to Me" (Vega)*** and "Gravity" (King Street). Both singles were produced and cowritten by Wil Milton. Rodney is also actively involved in artist development, songwriting, and producing. In addition, he is also working on several personal projects, and has taken an active role in the promotion and development of New York-based Gravity parties.
Miss Patty is ready to make her introduction to the world. Currently at work on her debut solo album, The Intro, Miss Patty is a vocalist of unusual talent, combining influences from across genres into her own unique style.
Born in Brooklyn in the early 1970s and raised in Manhattans hyper-creative clubs, this vocalist/producer has been a participant in New York Citys club scene from the age of 15. Her first club was the Red Zone, an essential party for the blossoming house scene of the 1980s. Helmed by David Morales, Red Zone was ground zero for dirty acid and tribal house and the free-spirited clubbers that sought it out. Her experiences at Red Zone started a lifetime of seeking out the best DJs and house music. Within this fertile environment, she made friends that nurtured her love of music. Then she found her name: they christened her Miss Patty.
Miss Patty took her love of music seriously. Raised by a record-collecting father who loved to blast disco in the car on road trips, Patty was fascinated by music. Summery nights spent sitting outside scanning the radio waves for new sounds lead to an appreciation of all styles of music. Id sit outside with my radio. Jazz, heavy metal, even classical music and operas I was into a lot of weird stuff. I used to search the dial for something new, a sound that spoke to me, she says. Miss Pattys open mind and ear lead her to be influenced by many artists and genres, including Teena Marie, Donna Summers, Michael Jackson, James Brown, Stevie Wonder, Jill Scott, Erykah Badu, and Peven Everett and to groove to sounds that ranged from disco and dance music to funk and folk.
Miss Patty was simply influenced by music: all sounds spoke to the growing creative presence within her, one that began to emerge as early as the age of 5 when Miss Patty started singing and dancing. By high school, she had already found a group of creative soul mates. Inspired and supported by this close circle of friends, Miss Patty began writing songs: just a few snippets here and there. As she found comfort in her voice, she began to experiment with how language sounded within the context of music, a songwriting technique she has kept to this day. I go with the feeling of the song. The vibe of the song is what determines my vocals. Its whatever moves me. Whatever the music tells me is what I want to turn into words and sing with that feeling. I dont always know what Im getting myself into". Miss Pattys experimental ways found still further expression at age 20 when she took up DJing. By the time she owned her first DJ set, shed already learned the skills from a friend. In keeping with Pattys far-reaching approach, the first music she learned to spin was techno. DJing allowed her to play in New York City clubs and parties, further experimenting with sounds and textures. To me, DJing is a whole production in itself; it just doesnt get pressed up. I used to DJ and I felt like I was creating new sounds and vibes. She attended the Center for Media Arts in New York City in 1991 and studied Recording Engineering, a skill that has come to use in her production work for her upcoming album. Most of the songs on The Intro are produced by Miss Patty, and range from house to jazz to samba to folk. Guest producers on The Intro include Sole Channels Mr. V, Los Angeles-based production duo Reel Soul, and Alix Alvarez, who has remixed everyone from Tortured Soul to Lady Alma. Patty continues to work with other artists and producers including Albert Menendez, Wil Milton, and rock guitarist David Sampson. The album also features live instrumentation from several musicians that have lent their licks to Miss Pattys vision.
