Conrad Dimanche always had a love for music. Rhymes, licks, raps and rifts filled his mind, though he ran his own barbershop. He invited DJs to spin records at a club next to the barbershop in Queens. He was more interested in the music at the parties then the parties themselves. His interest in music intensified so much so that he started to manage a few local artists in Queens while running the barbershop. Realizing he would never be satisfied until he pursued his musical dreams, he put down his cutting shears and eyed Sean “P Diddy” Combs and Russell Simmons, pioneers he admired, not only for their musicianship, but their ability to be creative and business savvy. He wanted to emulate their success.
Dimanche got his first break when Bad Boy Records executive Harve Pierre brought him into the fold as an unpaid intern. He would climb from intern in 1998 to senior director of A&R for Bad Boy Records. Though he left Bad Boy in 2007, he worked as a consultant for them during 2008, and rekindled his entrepreneurial fire, first with PMPworldwide.com, an online music related internet company and in December of 2011, he launched The Firm, his A&R consulting company.
