James Poyser article

Where producer James Poyser writes hits for D'Angelo, Common and Erykah Badu

Technology has made telecommuting a possibility for a range of professions, even musicians. Producer James Poyser's home studio is lined with Grammys and awards. Raised in the church, music came naturally and early to Poyser, who is able to spend plenty of time with his own family thanks to his home studio. In partnership withCadillac, The Pursuit looks inside Poyser's studio where he produces hit records between spending time with his family and playing piano with The Roots on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon.

When James Poyser receives a compliment he involuntarily laughs with a sharp exhale, as if expunging the praise and giving it back to the world. Though he may not himself be a household name, he's written melodies that stick in your head and play on the albums that make you dance. Poyser doesn't name drop and he doesn't brag. As piano player for The Roots, recently he's been thrust into the spotlight, or at least the studio lights, on Jimmy Fallon's Tonight Show

I never realized he was up there playing on Jimmy Fallon. I loved his playing on Mama's Gun.

I don't watch the show but I didn't know he was a part of that band either.

For 65 years straight, the #1 genre in music, selling wise, was rock n' roll worldwide. Last year (2017) in June, it got de-crowned by hip hop. Hip hop is the #1 genre. It's hip hop - rock - country - pop or pop - country. ~ Pras
